Cool modern barn home conversion in the heart of Sullivan County, with 2 large garages/outbuildings -- all supported by solar electricity.
When Catskill Farms moved offices, our space in Eldred, NY became the perfect creative project for a home conversion. Years ago, we transformed a modern pole-barn, a former school bus garage, into an efficient and attractive office. We added signature interior details, like barn doors, loft windows, and wood-clad walls. The modern barn is born again, this time into a loft-like house with a brand new kitchen, 2 baths, laundry, and expanded interior spaces including a 30' great room with 16' ceilings.
The home is cozy and comfortable, with radiant floors and baseboard heat, but also modern and eclectic with all the quirks and details seen in an industrial design conversion. Part SoHo loft, part rural retreat. We are swooning over the interior design potential that this barn space offers.
The property comes with a huge, 2,500 square foot, heated, 5-bay outbuilding with solar panels, behind the main house. The garage could easily become an indoor recreation room with pool tables, a basketball court, ping-pong tables, indoor rock climbing, batting cages, etc... There is an acre of land behind the garage for horses or play. Another outbuilding could serve as the ready-to-go pool house. The large, level lot is clear and ready to dig for an in-ground pool.
The home offers cell phone and broadband service with fast speeds and good connections. The 15KW solar electric system generate hundreds of dollars per month in electricity credits to the NYSEG account -- even in winter.
