Affectionately known as The Upper Barn, this converted barn is at the center of Landgrove's geography and storied history and has been transformed into a marvelously imagined, beautifully renovated, and completely charming cottage. It is perched high over the Utley Brook and sits front and center in the middle of the village, and you can let the sounds of the river lull you to sleep on summer nights and awake to beautiful mountain views while you enjoy the morning sun on your stone patio. Local historians believe the barn was first converted to a residence in 1930 by Burnham Hoyt, a Denver-based architect who designed the Riverside Church in New York City and was later the Dean of NYU's School of Architecture. The house was most recently renovated in the early 2000s with an eye towards retaining the rustic elegance of the original barn and adding modern amenities. The main level includes a magnificent Great Room with the original timbers prominently featured in the cathedral ceiling, a wood stove for heat and a stone fireplace for ambiance, a galley kitchen that is unexpectedly functional, one bedroom and two bathrooms. Upstairs, are two more bedrooms in what was likely the hay loft. The small village lot offers easy access to the private Landgrove Tennis Club's single clay court next door (should you choose to join) and a long, winding path with iron and stone steps take you down the hill to the Brook, where you'll find a truly lovely idyll to enjoy some quiet solitude.
