33 Broadway, Tivoli, NY 12583
“The Barn In Tivoli”, a homestead with a stylishly converted circa late 1800s barn and a picturesque modern two-bedroom cottage, sits on over four enchanting acres bordering the banks of Stoney Creek. The expansive barn has a first-floor living and dining room with a fully equipped chef’s kitchen and full bath. The second floor is a large open space with two sleeping “rooms”, another luxurious bath, and a loft bedroom. The owners have taken special care to maintain a rustic and cozy atmosphere in the barn, with a Vermont Castings wood stove in the main living area, plenty of windows with nature views, and quality woodwork. Stepping out the back is a black locust deck, an outdoor shower, and a post-and-beam woodshed. The 1,400 square foot, circa 1972 cottage is more modern in feel. The first floor has a well-equipped kitchen with high-end appliances and artisan-made chestnut cabinets, a large living room with a Morso wood stove, a cozy dining area, an office overlooking the pond and the forest beyond, an exercise room, and a half bath. On the second floor are two light-filled bedrooms and a beautiful bathroom with roof windows and a soaking tub. The owners, a designer/builder and artist duo, have worked in collaboration with numerous local artisans to renovate both buildings with love and the utmost care. The homes are intentionally rustic, sustainable where possible, energy-efficient, while also equipped with all modern comforts. The property is populated with over twenty species of mature trees, and offers multiple outdoor hangouts including a pond, multiple sitting areas with fire pits, a yoga deck on the creek, and a pebble beach with views of Stoney Creek. In front of the cottage, protected by 600 feet of deer fencing and two 15 feet gates, is an edible permaculture forest and kitchen garden with many varieties of fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, flowers, herbs, and veggies. Immersed in nature, yet just a few minutes’ walk from the charming hamlet of Tivoli, this beautiful homestead is an idyllic piece of nature and rustic architecture. The Barn in Tivoli is just minutes away from favorites like the Tivoli General, Fortunes Ice Cream, and Winns, under 20 minutes from Hudson, Rhinebeck, and the Rhinecliff Amtrak station, and just two hours from New York City.
