So help me this place lept to my mind and I went on a hunt.
(clapping hands) it's still available!
Garrison - Chapel $369,000
Circa 1864 Chapel currently used as an antique shop since 1966. Cathedral ceiling with exposed support beams and 1000 square feet of open space. On a main road with good visibility.
Okay so now picture it with more landscaping and a white picket fence around it.
Yes, it's close to the road but I think with a decent fence that wouldn't be an issue...

Majestically sited on 13 acres above a broad bend in the Hudson River, Cordts Mansion has unparalleled views of the Rondout Creek and the Hudson River. This "grand dame of Second Empire architecture", built in 1873 by brick magnate John H. Cordts, offers 30 rooms including 9 bedrooms, 9 baths, and 7 fireplaces. Gloriously restored by a renowned artist, the original details abound: Tiffany glass-paned doors, a mansard roof with iron cresting, elegant parlors, an elevator lift, and a conservatory. There is an expansive front porch to survey the views and gardens. But you'll find the most breathtaking vistas from the widow's walk and the top of the spectacular 3-story tower. The grounds include a magnificent Carriage House, a 2 bedroom guest house and a Caretaker's House complete with an exceptional caretaker (if desired.) Just 10 minutes from Rhinebeck. Featured in Elle Decor, Pleasure Palaces: The Art and Homes of Hunt Slonem, New York Magazine, Hudson Valley, and more. EXCLUSIVE
First, the land: Over 3 acres with spring-fed pond, horse barn, wood shed, mature trees, old lilacs, stone walls for borders to the surrounding forest. Now the house: Its native stone was laid sometime near the end of the 19th Century in unique design and construction, with a naturalist's delight in how stone and over a century of snow and rain and sun would cast a fine patina. Inside: board floors, true plaster, porcelain doorknobs, nooked-and-crannied rooms, and good tall windows for light (you can sit comfortably in most of the deeply-set windowsills). Also home to a connoisseurs' breed of draft horses, hence the solidly-built horse barn with hayloft. There's a well for livestock and one for people. The road to this place is remote and removed from the world of today, yet only 2 hours from NYC and 15 minutes from Ski Windham. EXCLUSIVE
3 Bed, 2 Bath
1,800 Sq. Ft.
An authentic Victorian cul-de-sac is the setting for this unique mid-19th Century brick home in Catskill featuring three levels of living space. Its sense of seclusion and privacy is unusual for a village property. The freestanding house is patterned after a sidehall townhouse, with kitchen-dining, full bath, and utility room on its first level. The second level is dedicated to living and work space (the bedroom on this level could also be an office or library) while the top floor is an aerie of two bedrooms and another full bath. The charms are many within and without: good board floors, mantels, wood-burning Franklin stove, peeks of the Hudson River from the balconied porch in winter, and an oasis of welcoming green in summer. Walk to the riverfront park, Catskill's Main Street, and Hudson's Amtrak station is just a 15-minute drive. EXCLUSIVE
This spectacular 8000 sf former church is perched on a hilltop in Hudson with unobstructed Hudson River views to the north. The stunning interior has a soaring cathedral ceiling with exposed rafters, original stained glass windows, and a spacious choir loft, all lit dramatically by large lanterns and stage lighting suspended from the ceiling. The mostly open floor space is on two levels and includes 1 bedroom, 4 baths, a huge catering-style kitchen, and a bell tower with sweeping views of the Hudson Valley. Enjoy the privacy of the beautiful yard and the views from the expansive lawn, yet youï¿½re still in close proximity to Hudsonï¿½s restaurants and galleries. This incredible building would be uniquely suited for a grand entertainment venue, creative office space, artist live/work space, gallery, or the most breathtaking one-of-a-kind residence around.
