When a house is a glorious Dutch barn, transformed by a visionary architect, and situated on 99 acres in New York's Hudson Valley, there is bound to be magic afoot. Light Fall, dating to the early 1800s, transformed by architect Preston Scott Cohen into a uniquely beautiful home.
The broad, central axis, with aisles on either side where bedroom loft, offices, and other rooms are tucked away, creates a soaring space, supported by massive beams and pillars.
Despite the massive footprint, the house beckons you into its airy, unexpectedly intimate interior, where natural light floods the space through countless windows. A freestanding poured concrete fireplace, and a professional-grade kitchen share the massive central 'nave' that extends to the original barn's height of 40 feet. A loft extends down one entire side of the building, overlooking the great room.
A massive breezeway draws visitors and air through it from east to west. At each end of the breezeway, giant garage-style doors made of glass can be raised and lowered. Extending along the entire western side of the house, a white cedar deck offers sunset views of the Catskills. Additionally, outdoor shower, three bay garage/barn, two-bedroom guest house, and tree house for summer play. Down the hill, spring fed pond with sandy beach and pond house barn. 48 hour notice please for accompanied showings.
