Remodeled Barn, Fabulous Rental, Comfy Home: The Barn in Tivoli is on the Market for $1,495,000

Nestled within a charming Hudson River village, the Barn in Tivoli is perfect for those looking for a private home and a turnkey business…

If you’re driving into Tivoli along Broadway, keep an eye out for the Barn, situated along Stoney Creek just a few minutes’ walk from the center of the village. What you might not see from Broadway, however, is that the Barn, as well as an accompanying two-bedroom cottage, sits on an idyllic, 4.5-acre property complete with permaculture gardens, a swimming hole, and multiple outdoor gathering spaces. And, it could all be yours…

The Barn

The crowning jewel of this property is the 1,820-square foot, 100+ year old barn, converted into year-round vacation rental that sleeps up to 8 guests. While the barn’s origins might be rustic, it includes two full baths, a renovated kitchen with Sub-zero refrigerator, convection oven, and propane cooktop. The interior is kept warm with a Vermont Castings wood stove and two propane back-up heaters. In the summer, the Barn cools off with window A/C units.

You and your guests will enjoy the black locust deck, built to last for decades, and when it’s time to rinse off after a dip in the creek, use the big outdoor shower to keep inside clean. The interior comes fully furnished and decorated. Make the barn your main private residence, or keep the barn as a rental property (business assets and finances available for serious buyers).

The Cottage

Ideally-suited as a decked-out guest cottage or primary residence, the 1970s Boho saltbox cottage comes with 1,333 square feet, two baths, and radiant heat flooring on the ground level.

The kitchen is outfitted with tile floors and a Bosch stainless steel dishwasher, and a 2016 bathroom renovation includes skylights, European fixtures, and a soaking tub. In fact, the cottage has multiple recent additions like the Morso wood stove, on-demand hot water heater, new sliding glass deck doors, and a host of energy-efficient upgrades.

The Grounds

In 2013, the owners installed a one-acre permaculture garden with help and inspiration from local permaculture practitioners, including Andrew Faust from the Center for Bioregional Living. The edible forest and kitchen garden are protected by 600 feet of deer fencing, as well as two 15-foot gates, which guard fruit trees and bushes, nut trees, herbs, and flowers.


All of this is located just minutes from the restaurants, shops, public library, and post office in Tivoli. Tivoli Bays, a 1,400-acre protected Hudson River estuary with trails and views, is a 10-minute walk from the Barn, and Hudson River sunsets are a 15-minute walk away. Whether you make this property a private homestead or continue its sterling rental reputation, The Barn in Tivoli will provide you and your guests the ultimate Hudson Valley experience.
