Three Levels of Living with Mountain Views in Columbia County, NY, $995K

What happens when you take the idea of an old silo barn and put it in a contemporary form? This modern barn home offers a clue. 

With a savvy mix of old and new, this 3,200-square-foot, five-bedroom house offers a loft-like space filled with height and light, as well as modern fixtures and custom cabinetry…

…but, this home also understands its stylistic roots to 18th and 19th-century. Check out the dining room fireplace with built-in cabinets and plank floors. Very 1700s Dutch stone Colonial!

And, the silo’s paned-glass windows provide views of the Catskill Mountains to the west.

A fully-modernized kitchen includes center island, stainless steel appliances, cherry wood cabinets, and slate sink…

…and, there are plenty of common acres to relax in comfort, perhaps next to a cozy fireplace.

On the second floor, the silo bedroom provides the most coveted spot in the house, near-full-circle views of the surrounding bucolic countryside…

…while the master en suite bath is modern and spa-like with whirl-pool bath, stand-alone shower, and slate tiles.

Outdoorsy types will appreciate the 17-acre property, situated in near-total privacy yet still close to civilization with Hudson, NY just 15 minutes away.

That privacy extends to the tucked-away gunnite swimming pool, where you can wile away the summers staying cool and refreshed.

While the property’s street address says “Hudson, NY,” in reality, it’s close to Claverack-Red Mills and the Taconic State Parkway. From there, you can get to NYC in about 2.5 hours.
