Whimsical, Magical…Octagonal in Columbia County, $799,000

  |  October 27, 2016

We went on the hunt for something unusual today, and we found it up in Columbia County, east of the Hudson River. This is octagonal house on 52 acres is more than just a novelty: It’s a full-on self-sufficient compound with guest accommodations, gardens, fruit trees, and barns, all heated and powered by geothermal and solar. Drooling yet? 

Even though it’s a utilitarian’s dream, this property is dripping with whimsy thanks to hand-tooled woodwork, rustic enclosures for the outdoor gardens, and arched doorways that leave us longing for the Shire. Tulikivi woodstoves abound, and if that’s still not enough heat for you, the sauna house is situated close to the three-bedroom main house. Guest house/rental/unit studio comes with a full kitchen. Three buildings total on the property.

Located 20 minutes from the city of Hudson, Columbia County, and two hours from NYC.

880 Snyder Road #20, Craryville (Mary R. White)
