Property description

Perfectly located in the scenic Hudson Valley, between the popular Woodstock and Saugerties destinations, sits this rustic yet elegant Barn-style retreat surrounded by gorgeous greenery and mountain views. Set on nearly four acres of lush private property in the Upstate New York Catskill region, here is a truly one-of-a-kind residence that provides unmatched enjoyment year-round for even the most discerning vacationer. This wonderful turn-of-the-century barn was relocated and lovingly replicated on its original site, and today is a special gem that’s been meticulously designed for the comfort and luxury you desire. READ THE REVIEWS ON OUR SITE to help you visualize your experience.

Whether your mood is to go barefoot or black tie, Barn on the Pond is the ideal place to unwind or entertain. With 3 bedrooms, loft with queen bed, Airstream camper and 2 baths, the home easily accommodates up to 14 guests. Soaring ceilings, period architecture and details, cozy fireplaces and wood beamed ceilings add to the historic character and charm; while a top-of-the-line kitchen and other contemporary amenities afford ultimate convenience for modern-day living. Enjoy a getaway experience that is most unique, highlighted by a spacious living area as your backdrop for relaxing or gathering with friends. Revel in the beauty of nature in the lovely sun room bedroom with an outdoor room above (both with fireplaces), outside on the sprawling deck above or from the abundant patio space below.

Topping the allure is the pond, wildflower meadow, fire pit and forest with a hanging bed and meditation trails on the grounds. When you decide to venture out, you have many area attractions at your disposal including five ski areas 45 mins. Swimming holes, restaurants, golfing, hiking, horseback riding and more are also right nearby. This incredible home has been spotlighted in New York Home Magazine and featured in the Saugerties Secret Gardens Tour.

Year Purchased: 2007

About: Motivated by his love of the Catskill region’s natural beauty and his commitment to promoting sustainability as a way of life, Tripp Bassett passionately devoted three years to restoring the historic barn into an idyllic country sanctuary. An avid devotee of architecture and interior design, he used his professional eye for detail and aesthetics as well as the skills and talents of his renowned team of collaborators to bring to life his vision of Barn on the Pond. A native of Roswell, New Mexico, he spent his childhood exploring his mother’s garden, a place where his appreciation for the wonders of the outdoors was born and nurtured. Over the years, this matured and developed into an environmental awareness that led him to follow the ecological concept of Seven Generation Sustainability, which urges the current generation to live in a way that benefits the seventh generation into the future – something he was conscious of in all aspects of designing the Barn and its property. It is also through this movement and way of living that he developed his strong sense of community and collaboration. Tripp is a highly creative and innovative graphic designer based in New York City whose eponymous firm, Tripp Bassett Design, is known in the industry for excellence in broadcast, print and package design; and strategic campaigns for branding, advertising, logo, and Web interface development. Bank of America, Bantam Books, Breyer’s Ice Cream, Continental Airlines, Pitney Bowes, Scholastic and Showtime have been among his major clients.

Why Saugerties:
Weather independent amenities abound. In home private chef, concierge, massage therapist, yoga available. Nature is breathtaking, area cuisine divine. Activities of all varieties, incl 5 ski runs nearby.

The Unique Benefits at this Barn:
Gourmet kitchen all new appliances, pond is full of wildlife, stunning nature views from every room. Minutes from Woodstock and Saugerties villages.
