The Upstater: Back to the Barn

Friday at 11:00, the Upstater website brings you a selection of properties for rent and sale within three hours north (and a little bit east and/or west) of New York City. This week: barns, revisited.

 

1242 Route 308, Rhinebeck

In tony Rhinebeck, a 904-square-foot converted barn, on an acre of land, for rent for $1,395 a month. It has a heated outbuilding (painting or writing studio, anyone?), a stone patio and a large deck.

181 Johnny Cake Hill Road, Westerlo

In Westerlo, further north in Albany County, is a capacious barn conversion. Well, okay, maybe capacious isn’t entirely accurate, since it’s only 1,200 square feet, but it looks like 1,000 of those feet make up the kitchen/dining/living area, so it appears loft-like.

 

It’s on over eight acres, and the taxes are very low indeed: less than $3,000 a year.

181 Johnny Cake Hill Road, Westerlo. $249,900. GMAP

356 McCagg Road, Kinderhook

And in the department of luxury barns, or barn-inspired luxury architecture, comes this Kinderhook contemporary. For $1.2 million, your ritzy escape includes a 50-foot lap pool, four bedrooms, three baths and 2,700 square feet.

 

Not convinced by the photos that you’ll be able to finally relax here? Check the copy: “An axial alignment of rooms create this contemporary sanctuary.”
