Renovated 1850s Barn in Scenic Coxsackie, NY, $449K

This Greene County converted barn is the complete package…

…especially if you’re looking for a family home on a big piece of land, close to both the Catskills and the Hudson River. And where would such a magical locale exist? Why, right in the town of Coxsackie, eastern Greene County, of course. The east side of town consists of Coxsackie village on the shores of the Hudson River. However, as you head to the west side of town on the other side of I-87, you’re starting to get into Mountain Country. Keep going for another half-hour and you’ll be hitting the slopes of Windham Mountain in the Great Northern Catskills. Perfect place to luxuriate in fall colors!

Or, luxuriate in 2,600 square feet of completely made-over everything with a spiral cherrywood staircase, plank floors, exposed rough-hewn beams, sliding barn doors, brick living room fireplace, and cathedral ceilings. That’s right; what hasn’t been painstakingly-restored has been replaced with modern conveniences and style.

Need a bird’s eye view? Go up to the loft and look down…

Includes three bedrooms, two of which comes with en suite baths. Furthermore, the interior is efficiently-heated with electric baseboard controlled by thermostats in each room. The listing suggests new owners could install solar and take the property off-the-grid. The whole house generator adds a layer of assurance during the cold months.

Or, you could warm up the old-fashioned way: By taking a dip in the built-in swim spa tub on the deck. The property’s gardens are bordered by stone walls and garden steps, and it also comes with a two-car detached garage and two garden sheds.

Take note that the listing says that some of the second floor needs to be finished.

Here’s what the barn used to look like back in its early days. Charming then, even more charming now.
