Barn Homes

Wide open spaces, loft-like feel.

Envisioned as a middle ground for those who pine for original post and beam barn conversions (drafts and all), our Catskill Farms Barn series zeros in on what inspires and navigates away from what haunts the Barn Buyer.  High ceilings, steep gabled dormer-less pitched roofs, straight-forward rectangular shape, sharp interior rooflines.  The interiors of our barn homes can be modern, can be salvaged, old fashioned, industrial, or country – the Barn House is a palette that can serve many masters.

Homes in our Barn Series typically showcase large spaces with space for dining room tables for 14, open kitchens and a general flow that accommodates holidays, parties, and simple family weekends.  Basements are finished as a true natural compliment.

Catskill Farms has for 20 years decorated and dotted the countryside with thoughtful and respectful new construction in the Catskill counties of Ulster and Sullivan. Each home is paired well with an interesting piece of real estate, scouted, vetted and test driven by Founder Charles Petersheim, who has achieved 200+ successful pairings.

Driven with a simple passion for high ceilings, big windows, good land in good locations and a mantra of design restraint, the homes of Catskill Farms have been a crowd-pleaser and go-to choice of the Metro NYC crowd for 2 decades. Thoughtfulness has defined its entire journey.
