This artistic compound situated in Saugerties, NY was once an original Woodstock Art Colony sculptor’s enchanted homestead.

Here’s a bluestone-line beauty in Ulster County, NY, consisting of a main bungalow, barn, and a handful of out-buildings, all sitting on 64 acres of land betwixt Woodstock and Saugerties villages. This is the dreamiest of the dreamy, especially if you’re longing for a property with a history rooted in the area’s creative past.

Going just by the bare-bones listing description alone, this is a one bedroom/one bath, 1,266-square-foot bungalow going for nearly three million bucks. However, it’s oh-so-much more than that. Designed and created by sculptor Tomas Penning back in the 1950s, the compound includes a number of walls, walkways, and patios made of bluestone, Penning’s preferred medium. Furthermore, the sculptor’s original bluestone studio – with an upper-level loft, a wall of windows and rustic, exposed timber beams – is still standing on the property.

The single-bedroom bungalow in question has been extensively updated after falling into disrepair, and it comes with an open-concept layout with formal dining room, living room, sitting room, wood stove, and wood floors.

It also includes both a screened-in porch and a covered patio.

In addition to the bungalow and the stone studio, there’s a stone barn, original stone work still intact, that is begging for a full restoration.

Rounding out the property’s other outbuildings is a machine shop and firehouse, but what makes this a true Hudson Valley Dreamhouse is the spring-fed swimming pond surrounded by a bluestone deck.

Oh, have we mentioned it comes with year-round views of Overlooking Mountain? Check that one off of your wish-list if you haven’t already.
