55 Creek Road, High Falls, NY 12440

On this Historical, Magical, Private, Waterfront Peninsula, located in beautiful High Falls, is an early 1800's Farmhouse, built by the Alliger Brothers. 11 acres with 5 linear acres of Rondout Creek and swim holes, this Farm was used as a barge stop in the late 1700's, early 1800's for overnight stays, a hot meal, hard cider and ale. You can feel the festive energy when you enter the kitchen. Supplies were brought up the river to help build the D & H Canal and the Hamlet of High Falls. Mules were stabled here to haul supplies and plant the fields. Purchased by the late Mary Hecht in the early 1900's, There is a 1950's Quonset Airplane Hanger (No Landing Strip) she used to build and store her collection of antique cars, it is now used as a Workshop with 3 Phase Electricity. The Barn, rebuilt with hand hewn beams and timber from the land, has 2 beautiful Studios. The Lower Studio has 2 levels, radiant heat in the floor and a heavy-duty ventilation system for major art projects. Upper Studio has a vaulted ceiling, radiator heat and a view of the back meadow. There is an old cabin called The Corn Crib, a Stone Smoke House and several small outbuildings. There is an Engineered Floating Suspension Bridge, over a flume, to take you to, what was once a Public Beach and is now part of this private property. New Burnham boiler system, zoned, updated electrical boxes thru out. All systems work as they should. Property needs your personal aesthetics. This property would be ideal for artists communion, a working farm, a private compound and meditation. You only hear the sound of rushing water and birds singing. Once you walk this land, you will find it hard to leave. The opportunity to have a property like this, on the Rondout, does not happen very often. Please access Tour, 3-D Tour, Floorplans and Dollhouse Views! Experience the perfect balance of peace, creativity, joy and if you wish, debauchery on this very unique Farm.
