1883 Route 213, Rifton

This ultimate Artist’s dream home feels like you are visiting Tuscany. Live and create under the same roof. An 1870 hand-cut stone building that has been both a school at one time, as well as a church. Home features an additional very large storage/workshop area which adjoins a three story stone tower. Very large 7 foot by four foot windows throughout the entire building giving the home warm and natural light in every room and all seasons. Lush perennial organic native gardens surround the home and offer breathtaking colors and smells. All of this sitting high on a stone bluff above the Wallkill River. Classic Hudson Valley beauty. Artists, musicians, craftspeople, handy people, and anyone who loves an antique building will find the opportunities this home presents irresistible. Here you can live and create under one roof. Gigantic, original seven by four foot windows let the sunlight flood in on every level. Inside, exposed beams, mixed tile and wide board floors, bright blue six panel doors and trim, and the deep window sills created by the stone block structure give the building incredible character. The church has four unique levels, each with a slightly different character and list of possible uses. Let your imagination run wild! The lower garden level is a charming three bedroom, two bath residence with a huge fireplace that heats the whole floor on cold winter nights. This level is just the right amount of space—its soaring ceilings and large windows let in plentiful light. The mid-level is a workshop / office space with raised double doors on two sides of the building. These once led to a loading platform; nowadays, these could be reborn to serve your own home business! The third floor is a wide open loft with a gigantic circular stone barbeque capped by huge hood that vents through the ceiling. Dance space, a bar, and plenty of windows make this the perfect rustic entertainment area. Above the loft is a garret space with access to the bell tower—yes, there’s a bell tower!—that could become a writer’s escape, a yoga spot, or a place to simply unwind.
