Property Type: Residential
Description: Situated near the Hudson River is this magnificent 24' X 44', 2 story post and beam barn surrounded by nearly 75 acres of privacy and serenity. Wind your way up the long driveway to the clearing that has been carefully selected to greet you with light, rest, and opportunity. The barn certainly steals the show, but if you look around you'll see a large garden with gravity fed watering vessels and plenty of room for your picnics and fun around the fire pit. Keep your equipment and vehicles protected under the large, 12' x 44' overhanging roof on the North side of the barn. Wander through the door and be awed by the impeccable craftsmanship, massive beams and warm beauty of the wood surround. Each piece of wood was carefully selected for strength, use, and character. Consider the possible applications for the tremendous stacks of wood (taken from the property) that are waiting for a job, function or purpose. Cabinets? Flooring? Siding? Artistic and sculptural use? These stacks were originally slated for the home that was envisioned for the upper clearing which is accessed by walking behind the barn and up through the cleared driveway with shale foundation. Here at the top of the property you'll see eagles soaring and bunnies frolicking. From here, and along the way back down the hill you will catch peaks of the opposite side of Hudson River. Seasonal views will allow you to catch glimmers of water, and additional clearing will add to the vistas. So much of the hard work has already been done here. If you're looking for the perfect site to build your dream home, this is it! Whether you choose to live off the grid or create a luxurious retreat, this property is waiting for the eye of the artist, the hand of the maker, or the imagination of the creative spirit.
The concrete wall portions of the barn are 8' high and 10 inches thick. There are footing drains as well as additional drainage around the barn site in order to keep water away from the building site. The beams of the barn are constructed of hemlock with the exception of the three large beams which are milled from Douglas Fir. The siding and roof are pine. The roof and floor are 2' X 8' tongue and groove. There are two generator hook-ups in place. The generators themselves are excluded from the sale.
