Fans of Woodstock, NY’s illustrious rock-and-roll history will appreciate this Arts and Crafts Colonial house.
Once upon a time, Levon Helm of The Band called this storybook Craftsman “home sweet home,” and, before that, American novelist John Dos Passos made it his base of operations. The house dates back to 1918 – when Woodstock was a budding arts colony – and was built by George Kimball Plochmann, a noted Woodstock local who designed the house for Carolyn Gassan Plochmann, painter and wife of George, and their musician son. Looking for local history? It’s practically coming out of the taps in this house.
Beyond the exterior’s dark facade lies 1,937 square feet of cathedral ceilings, exposed beams, and a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. With a dash of Dutch Colonial, a pinch of Tudor, and a huge dollop of Craftsman woodwork and built-ins, this is a true artist’s abode, filled with natural light.
Includes three bedrooms on the second floor, as well as two extra rooms on the ground floor that could be more bedrooms, an office, or home studio.
Two enclosed porches allow for space to bask in the idyllic countryside that surrounds the seven-acre property…
…which also comes with a three-bay garage, a small barn with attached dog kennel, and a 700-foot cottage equipped with installation, water, and gas hook-ups which would make an ideal guest cottage…or music studio.
Speaking of studios, the Levon Helm Studio is just down the road, while Woodstock village is less than five minutes’ drive away. Enjoy the beauty of the Catskill Mountains practically at your doorstep, or head just a few miles east to the Hudson River.
