Our love story with this house starts with this description: “1840s, post & beam, barn residence.” Say no more, we’re completely on board. This specimen is a big one with 3600 square feet to call your own and located conveniently to the Taconic Parkway up in Columbia County. In spite of its proximity to the nearest exit, this 2-care property definitely meets the “away from it all” criteria since it’s totally obscured by trees on the Google map.

Now, onto that pretty interior. They kept the original post & beam bones and filled in the rest with country-inspired details. Includes hardwood floors, living room wood stove, lots of windows, and a pair of French doors leading to a fenced yard and gardens. Second floor high ceilings make it a light-filled loft space. The kitchen, however, remains a mystery. Situated in the town of Claverack, 20 minutes due west of Hudson city and approx. 2 hours from NYC.
