Property description

Renovated barn sits just over the state line from the Berkshires, nestled on ten acres of the rolling hills of glorious Columbia County. It overlooks 1000 acres of Audubon Sanctuary and a crystal clear babbling stream which runs about 8 months of the year. We are on a lovely road for walking with beautiful views of the Taconic Ridge. The cottage is perfect for a person or couple who needs a get-a-way with no distractions unless they want them. It's a multi-level open plan cottage with original 1904 beams. Downstairs is an entry room, bath, wood-burning stove, and a living room/dining area with a modern kitchen. Upstairs is a bedroom with a Queen sized bed and a study/den that includes a 2' x 8' desk top/work surface and a daybed. The study area has a large window opening to the stream, a native meadow and woods. All systems are new and the kitchen is fully equipped.

The barn also faces our flower and organic vegetable garden with a little orchard beyond. Beyond the pine trees, set in the meadow, is a 16' by 36' pool surrounded by hydrangea and plantings.

Hillsdale bridges the Berkshires and the Hudson Valley. We are conveniently located one mile from the hamlet with its IGA, gift shops, diner, fine restaurant, amazing library and the beautiful 400 acre Roe Jan Park. We are four miles from Catamount skiing. The cottage is a short drive from three great small towns. Ten miles east you'll find the Berkshire town of Great Barrington with desirable shopping, dining and entertainment. Heading west, we are 15 miles from the dynamic town of Hudson with antiques, galleries, restaurants and Club Helsinki. Millerton is 17 miles south. The amount of first-rate activity in this rural setting is astounding. Not only are there extraordinary arts, dining and shopping but also the great outdoors - trails, fishing, biking, Bash Bish Falls, the Harlem Valley Rail Trail and climbing. Cultural highlights include Jacob's Pillow, Tanglewood, Barrington Stage Theater, Berkshire Theater Festival, Shakespeare and Co., Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and many museums. (Note: Sign on cottage is a family heirloom, not a commercial venture.)
