Fabulous 1864 Renovated Barn! Just 5 min from the village on one of the quietest, friendliest lanes in Woodstock. Oozing with charm, this gorgeous and light filled barn has been completely transformed into a modern-rustic farmhouse The current owner's renovation in 2009 created a chefs kitchen/dining area on the main floor from the former 30 foot high hayloft and by adding a ceiling to that area allowed for the creation of a large master bathroom on the top floor adjoining the master bedroom. Not to mention, a huge living room room with 13" ceilings. This property will appeal to the person who wants the cache of living in a 155 year old barn structure, complete with original wide plank pine floors, hand hewn wood beams, original wood columns which carry the history of a working barn, high ceilings and a large fireplace. But that person also wants a completely updated interior with energy saving amenities like two-zone central heating and air conditioning, hot water on demand, modern appliances and many built-ins. All of that situated on 3.5 acres of a rolling meadow on a quiet Woodstock lane within walking distance from the “Big Deep” swimming hole and town. New Marvin windows and French doors allow light to pour into the high ceiling living room, showcasing a brick fireplace with handcrafted wood hearth and mantle. A first-floor bedroom with custom built-in cabinetry can double as a comfortable den/library. Up a flight of stairs with spindles made from branches found around the property, the second floor has a second bedroom (with room to add a bathroom) and a spacious ensuite master bedroom with two walk-in-closets, a loft office area, a reading nook, and a luxury master bathroom with glass-enclosed shower with handmade artisan tiles and river-rock floor, and two handcrafted sinks and vanities. This home is the perfect blend of vast, wide open spaces for entertaining and cozy, charming nooks for working, reading or meditating. The massive gourmet eat-in kitchen with soaring ceilings and high-end appliances has sliders that open onto a sunny patio for having morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine. The kitchen also opens to a large 12'x24' enclosed screened porch, complete with wood-burning stove and blue-stone floor for enjoying the serenity of this property, which is abundant with wildlife. The architecture beautifully incorporates appreciation of the surrounding lush environment. There's even central air, a whole house generator and a fenced-in dog area. One of Woodstock's most magical swimming holes “Big Deep” is walking distance from the property. Woodstock, only 5 minutes drive, is truly “the most famous small town in the Country” populated by artists, writers, musicians and free thinkers. Its bucolic surrounds provide nature at her finest in the Catskill Mountains which offer outdoor activities all year round.
