Taking a tried-and-true design and turning it into something new is an idea we can get behind here at Upstater. That’s why we’re so enamored by this Contemporary home in Olivebridge, Ulster County. Something about the look of it that reminds us of a New England barn with a heaping dollop of church on the side, thanks to the steeple-like lookout tower and the front entry with pitched roof.

Step inside, however, and it’s all bright and modern with airy cathedral ceilings, glass by the ton, and a kitchen straight from a Food Network cooking show (marble countertops, sub-zero fridge, Wolf range, the works).

On the 15-acre parcel sits an actual antique barn outfitted with heat and currently set up as a Pilates studio. Also includes a swimming pond, greenhouse, gardens, and venerable stone walls all around the pastoral property. A mix of of old and new, indeed, and a successful one, at that.

Located near the hamlet of Olivebridge, about 15 miles from the Ashokan Reservoir and just over 2 hours from NYC.
