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. (Given that many objects are low to the ground, and paired with the spiral staircase, this property is not recommended for small children.)

An enticing stone fireplace is the central feature of The Barn, extending 25 feet through the upstairs catwalk, naturally dividing the large open plan downstairs space into distinct “rooms”. The lounge is a cozy, intimate spot for getting into lengthy discussions. The modern, fully equipped chef's kitchen features open shelving, helpful when locating dishes and glassware. The dining area has a view out to the 50' deck and the lawns beyond. Entertain your guests with a little tune from the piano, perhaps, a game of pool, or cozy up for a movie night on one of two Smart TV's (37" HDTV and 65" 4KHDTV) with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and DirecTV Now. A master bedroom with a king bed is privately curtained off of the main floor living space. Speakers for iPhones or iPods are located in various rooms throughout the house. There is one full bath with shower on the main floor, which also houses the washer/dryer.
Up the spiral stairs to the “catwalk” are three cheerful bedrooms all with queen-size beds, and a sleek shared full bathroom with jacuzzi tub/shower.
The grounds are as lush and inviting as the interior is stylish. And the deck is well-furnished with space for dining and lounging, providing an appealing vantage point for taking it all in. Outside, take a dip in the small 2' x 8' x 3' plunge pool, a shallow galvanized tub built into the deck that's perfect for cooling off on warm summer days. Outdoor speakers complement balmy summer days and chilly fall evenings spent outside.
Enjoy the quiet!
