A Small Family Paradise in West Shokan, $337,500Kandy Harris | January 18, 2016

The listing alludes to transforming this barn into the main house on the property and keeping the current main house as a guest house or rental. That sounds like a fine idea to us. Meanwhile, while that’s happening, you get to live in this:
The whimsy and cheerfulness of the interior immediately put us in mind of a playspace for children, but the exterior features are what bring out our own inner child. Who wouldn’t want to play in a secret garden with a mini-fairy gate, no matter what your age?
Located near the western end of the Ashokan Reservoir in the town of Olive, Ulster County, approximately 2 hours from NYC. The taxes were a reasonable $5600 in 2014.
