The list price on this farmhouse near Phoenicia surprised me at first glance. It’s a pretty house, but properties that seem more obviously upmarket go for less in this neck of the woods. When I looked at the listing more closely, the $469,000 made more sense. The property includes a classic red farmhouse (2 upstairs bedrooms, 2 bedrooms in the attic, country kitchen, brick fireplace) plus what the broker describes as a “Soho-style” converted barn. Recently renovated, the barn looks modern and loft-like, with high ceilings, built-ins and lots of light. The barn offers two additional bedrooms, perfect for guests or for using as a rental property. (NB: The barn’s bathroom situation isn’t entirely clear to me.) I think the property’s most winning feature, though, is the great cedar deck leading to the stream down below. The home is in “excellent” condition, with lots of surrounding space.
