Westerlo is a little town in the southern portion of Albany County, which might be a tad north for our commuting and weekending friends, but it’s such a cool barn conversion at a great price, we couldn’t pass it up. According to the listing, the barn itself is circa-1790s and was brought to the 8+ acre property in the 1980s. It’s easy to see why we like it: Rustic in all the right places, cathedral ceilings, wood floors with radiant heat, not to mention all that pretty land. Westerlo is indeed remote, but some of us are into seclusion. The cute weathervane and additional small barn seal the deal. Taxes are decent at around $2700/year.
