Artist Heaven!!! This light filled, contemporary raised ranch, nestled among the trees, at the foot of the Shawangunk Ridge, has been home to two local artists and hosted many art lovers and art collectors as part of the Gardiner Open Studio Tour community. Lovingly maintained and upgraded since it's purchase, this property boasts a separate outbuilding, recently converted into the perfect artist studio and gallery space. Many eco-friendly features are included: double-pane Andersen windows, solar electric roof panels and a Vermont Castings wood stove, plus central A/C. Together these make this home extremely efficient at keeping things cool in our sunny summer days and cozy-warm all winter long. Freshly painted throughout, all you have to do is schedule your movers and start enjoying the view from your picture window, wild turkeys in the trees and soaring hawks in the sky. Or you can step out back onto your screened-in porch and take in the seasonal views of the ridge and the tranquil sound of the bubbling stream that borders the south side of the property. Inspired yet? It's just a one-hundred foot journey to the studio! The unpainted reclaimed wood of the over-sized joists and rafters that make up the open gabled ceiling of this large, 18' x 39' artist studio, hearken back to its history as a hand-built workshop dating to the 1950's. This gracious space was just completely renovated and insulated throughout: new roof, new maintenance-free siding, a raised insulated floor and double glazed windows. Large glass doors, two operable skylights with remote, plus an all-LED array of high-efficiency lights, gallery style dimmable lights, spots for displaying artwork, plus dimmable overhead work lights, are perfect for any kind of project or mood! This all-season building features a new Fujitsu Halcyon Mini-Split, super efficient heater/AC unit, plus a specialized heat-exchanger ventilation system so you can paint in comfort and safety on the coldest or hottest days. With a separate 200amp electrical service and plenty of outlets and built USB ports and building wide surge suppression, this space could also lend itself to recording space or a musician's studio. The building had a permit for septic and water service, the plumbing is in place; the owners had to sell before work was complete. Come create your dream!
Helen knows the area thoroughly and showed us a number of properties in New Paltz. She was extremely patient as we decided to not pursue a few, often after multiple visits. Then, for the property we bought, she called us minutes after it became listed, got us the first showing, and we made an offer that was accepted. The house was not shown to any other parties and we had a signed contract and closed quickly. Through every step, including about the mortgage application, we received excellent guidance. Helen really came through for us and we now have a house we are truly happy with.Allen Ross
A joy to work with. Really not what I had come to expect. Straightforward, an advocate, not treating my small sale as anything lesser. I hope I have the opportunity to work with her again. I will definitely pass her name along!Itty - New Paltz
