Currently a successful AirBnB, this Ancram NY post and beam Colonial is propped against a tiered rocky ledge…

…and, it’s anchored into place with stone retaining walls. If that doesn’t sound like a secure foundation, we don’t know what does.

The small inn dates back to the 1860s and zoned residential/commercial. New owners could keep it going as an AirBnB or turn it into an impressive single family residence that’s surprisingly large inside. Includes 2,288 square feet, three bedrooms, and one full bath.

Ground floor includes large, well-lit studio/workshop, master bedroom with skylight, cathedral ceilings in the dining room, and large kitchen. The other two bedrooms are upstairs.

The beauty doesn’t end with the inside, however. Outside, the small parcel of land includes a terraced yard with stone walls and a lily pond. All this stonework makes this house a perfect fit for Stone Houses and Features Week.

Also comes with two rocking chair porches, upstairs and downstairs.

Located in the rural hamlet of Ancram in eastern Columbia County, about 20 minutes from both Massachusetts and Connecticut. The Ancram Opera House is a two-minute stroll from the front door.
