Livingston Manor house description
Set on a rural road with the occasional farm, and convenient to Jeffersonville and Livingston Manor, The Barn is the creation of a successful artist, and as such, is a kind of work in and of itself. The owner’s creative flair really permeates every corner of this comfortable, eclectic home, with tastefully-presented collections and acquisitions that do make you want to pause and take in each item. From noirish black and white photos and a great book collection to occasional bursts of color and fun textiles of the owner’s design, there is a lot to enjoy here, without it being overwhelming. (Given that many objects are low to the ground, and paired with the spiral staircase, this property is not recommended for small children.)
The stone fireplace, which extends 25 feet through the upstairs catwalk, naturally divides the large downstairs space into distinct “rooms”: The lounge, a cozy, intimate spot for watching TV or getting into lengthy discussions; the modern kitchen, which has a lot of open shelving, helpful when locating dishes/glassware; the dining area, which has a view out to the deck and the lawns beyond; a piano for entertaining your house guests with a little tune, perhaps; and of course the area around this imposing fireplace. (The owner’s office area will be closed off.)
Up the spiral stairs to the “catwalk”, off which are three cheerful bedrooms, all with queen-size beds, and a sleek full bathroom with jacuzzi tub/shower. The second full bath is downstairs and has a shower. The washer/dryer is in that room as well.
The grounds are as lush and inviting as the interior is stylish. And the well-furnished deck, with space for dining and lounging, provides an appealing vantage point for taking it all in. At the further reaches of the lawns is a pretty pond, which provides a whole other facet to the property.

Unique and Peaceful Escape from the City
Unique and Peaceful Escape from the City
Let me first start off by saying that from start to finish, the management company conducted themselves exactly what any company providing a service such as there's should strive to achieve. The person that assisted me was so refreshingly professional and accommodating through the whole process. Can't thank her enough. As for the property...VERY well maintained, open concept, airy, and sooo quiet. My wife and I live in the city and require an escape in order to maintain our sanity every couple of months. This place was exactly what we needed. No, the entire place wasn't air conditioned, but it didn't need to be. What most people fail to realize when staying in an older build, is that A/C wasn't always available and houses were built instead for cross ventilation to keep it cool. Even the materials used for construction are much more efficient in holding a consistent temp. We were up there this past weekend (4th of July) and it was HOT outside (90-100 degree w/ high humidity.) Unusually hot for the Catskills, actually. All we had to do was open the windows, which all had screens and it cooled right down. The master bedroom does have A/C, so the listing is not inaccurate in stating it has A/C. The decor is very eccentric. You definitely get the impression that an artist put his heart & soul into this place. My wife and I actually felt like we were in a museum and ended up spending a couple hours just gazing at all the art and collectibles he has showcased around so well. From the beautiful floors to the fur throws to the furniture, there is definitely a sense of comfort and home, even with how different the overall decor was, which I feel is something that must have taken a lot of thought to achieve. The kitchen is amazing. If you are like us and live in the city, you know how tiny Manhattan kitchens are. Not here! We had so much space, we didn't know what to do with it all. Big stove, lots of counter space, and a massive fridge. There were two grills on the deck. One gas, one charcoal. I prefer the charcoal grill. It just adds a better flavor to whatever you may be barbecuing, in my opinion. And the deck...our main spot of relaxation. Nice view of the open yard, and hours upon hours of sounds of nature. All in all, everything was just what we needed to enjoy our quiet 4th of July weekend. We will definitely be back.

Manager response: Wow thanks so much Josh! You've really captured the feeling of what it's like to stay at this fantastic property. We're so pleased you had a nice holiday and really appreciate your business.
Beautiful home and yard! Lots of amenities. Nice owner. This house is NOT air conditioned as listed! One bedroom has a window a/c unit for that one bedroom only.Unresponsive property manager. Left this property a day early due to this. This place would have gotten 5 stars if it had A/C as promised (and paid for) and a property manager who was responsive. Property manager did not offer to reimburse for the night we didn't use (due to their inaccurate listing information).
