Beautiful Byrdcliffe Farmhouse For Sale in Woodstock, NY
There are so many wonderful things to talk about in this turn of the century farmhouse on Lower Byrdcliffe Road in Woodstock that it’s difficult to know where to begin. Even the carport is picturesque! But, we’ll follow the old Real Estate adage and talk about “location, location, location” first!
Lower Byrdcliffe Road has the distinction of being at the base of the famous Byrdcliffe Arts Colony. You can wander on foot up the road to the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony Buildings for performances, studio visits and classes. The Byrdcliffe Colony is filled with beautiful old rustic buildings with a style that's unique to Woodstock. It’s quiet and peaceful and has a wonderful energy that’s hard to describe. It’s also within walking distance to Woodstock Village! Stroll or bike in for brunch, dinner, art openings, shopping and great people watching. The bus from New York City brings you to the Catskills and drops off right in town, so you can leave your car at the house and catch the bus to and from the City – both convenient and an inexpensive way for city dwellers to keep a car.
