Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: I live and work here with my partner sculptor Caroline who is originally from Austria and speaks English, German, French and Italian. We are both international recognized sculptors (please Google our names: John Van Alstine, Caroline Ramersdorfer). We would be delighted to share our garden, studios and large indoor gallery and all that the wonderful Adirondacks have to offer with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Wells:
This historic property, with its 6 independent buildings, nestled on the banks of a mountain river is an artist's dream. To live, create and exhibit our work in such a beautiful part of the world is an extraordinary and wonderful privilege and something we would love to share it with our guests!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Beyond all the wonderful things the Adirondacks offer - our unique space affords our guests a chance to live within our 9 acre sculpture garden, and if they wish, stroll in our huge indoor galleries, visit our studios, see us at work and come away with memorable insights into how our enchanted location has a strong and positive effect on our creative process.
