Best of the Week

Here at Architectural Homes we bring you all things uniquely dazzling. Converted barns have been around for a long time, but in the past few years they have been particularly trendy. The open layouts and grand features offer a playground of contemporary potential. If you want to get your money’s worth it might be time to think about barn living.

Need a place to stable your horses, children, or guests? If so, give us a call.



P.S. If you have any friends or family that would enjoy this weekly update, please let us know and we would be glad to add them to our mailing list.

Gardiner, NY

The ultimate live-work oasis: This is a rare opportunity to own almost 80 pristine acres near New Paltz, with no less than one-third of a mile of frontage on the most picturesque stretch of the Wallkill River. Originally conceived as an artists’ retreat and only 90 minutes by car from Manhattan, the completely private property is entered on a long driveway flanked by woods, hiking trails and gently rolling topography, all culminating at the water’s edge with wonderful views of the Wallkill and open farmlands beyond. The dramatic 3,321-square-foot house and studio, all under one roof, features insulated concrete form (ICF) construction, with a 10-kilowatt solar array and new high-efficiency systems that minimize monthly utility costs. The portion of the building currently devoted to living features a roomy open layout, gourmet kitchen with induction range, 17-foot cathedral ceilings and radiant heat inside polished concrete floors, all continued from the studio space, plus a wall of windows leading to a gracious patio and the woods and water beyond. The massive 58-by-40 studio space, perfect for creating large-format art, storing a car collection, or entertaining on a grand scale, features a 12-foot bay door for drive-in deliveries, plus flexibility for cozy gathering spots despite the dramatic scale. The entire property is mostly fenced and all utility lines are buried from the road. Water, septic and electric hookups are also in place for two motor homes, making this your own potential Glamping destination. Whether you’re looking for state-of-the-art style that’s completely move-in-ready, or to eventually create an even larger legacy estate with multiple buildings, this stunning compound offers the best of Hudson Valley nature and contemporary design in one self-sustaining package.
