Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why the Owner Chose Hudson:
Stanley Bate bought this farm in 1939 as a weekend home and a place to have a painting studio and a ceramics studio. Stanley was part of the thriving, post-war artist community in Columbia county and retired and lived here until 1972. 75 years later Columbia county continues to draw artists and weekenders escaping NYC because it is only 2 hours north of NYC and it's natural beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this Barn:
Consider this a chance to unplug and reconnect with nature. Cell phones and hot spots, depending on your provider, will still work here, but take some time to do something other than staring at a 5x3 screen. There is a mulitiude of options-hiking, biking, a beautiful golf course, great food-or just relax and spend a quiet, or not-so-quiet!- weekend with family and friends.
