Finding Religion in this Woodstock Converted Church, $585K

woodstock church

Hunting for a house that’s not an average house? Your prayers have been answered with this Woodstock church converted into a private residence. 

This week on Upstater, we found ourselves searching the Hudson Valley/Catskills real estate listings for homes that march to the beat of their own drum. Where better than Woodstock, NY to begin such an endeavor? The artsy Ulster County village offers plenty of stylish, not-your-average-split-level-ranch-style real estate, like this converted Victorian church tucked-away on 1.5 acres in the woods.

You might want to skip putting on socks, because the 1,431-square-foot interior will just knock them clean off, anyway, with embossed ceilings and walls, stained glass windows, hardwood floors, and limestone and walnut fireplace mantel that allegedly hails from the Paramount Theatre in NYC, which shuttered in 1966.

In addition to a full kitchen and bathroom, the home features a second-floor loft accessible by staircase, as well as an actual bedroom at the top of a spiral staircase.

This property would make a bang-up art studio or private retreat, thanks to surroundings that virtually ensure total seclusion. You won’t have to give up convenience, however, since Woodstock village is just minutes away, as is Kingston city to the south. Praise be!

If you’ve been hankering for a new home that won’t look like every other house on the block, stick with Upstater this week for just the right amount of weird, all week long.
