A dutch stone house gets a beautiful barn addition in the Hudson Valley

farmhouse-exterior

An 18th century Dutch stone house was lovingly restored by Kate Johns Designs, located in the picturesque Hudson Valley of New York State. The original stone structure can be viewed on the left, built into the steep hillside that drops down to the old ice pond. On the right is the newly constructed “connector” with its monitor skylight.

This connects the original Dutch stone house with the salvaged vintage barn addition to its right both horizontally and vertically. It contains the entry as well as the stair system which connects three of the four levels of the house. The vintage barn structure features one big all-purpose room of 1,553 square feet, which consists of the kitchen, dining, and living areas and soars to 27 feet at its peak.

Above: The exterior paint color is Deep Caviar 2130-20 | Benjamin Moore. The stone is salvaged New York fieldstone. The roof is standing seam unpainted galvanized steel. The custom, double glazed, mahogany windows were made by Century Windows.

What We Love: This dutch stone house is absolutely gorgeous, timeless, and beautifully executed. We are especially loving the high ceiling with the exposed beams in the kitchen. On the exterior facade, the stone colors dictated the dark siding color. Even though this is a house, it has a barn feeling, so the darker color selection works beautifully for the overall aesthetic. The surroundings of this dwelling are spectacular, nestled into the hillside and dropping down to the ice pond level.

Above: Hand-stained, rustic oak ceiling boards were installed on the roof frame, keeping the rafters exposed. The antique oak flooring from Carlyle Wood Floors is finished in a pale whitish-grey. Some cabinets are constructed in white oak, while others are painted, all with 2-inch thick marble counters.

Above: At the kitchen end of the great barn room is a huge masonry fireplace with a stove and Tuscan oven built into it. The old ladder built into the side of a post was originally to access the barn loft. A long dining table in the foreground centers the room.

Above: The custom vented alcove housing the La Cornue stove mirrors the fireplace at the opposite end of the great room. The 16-foot long island is in proportion to the extra tall ceilings. A sink, dishwasher, under-counter refrigerators, storage, and seating space are all installed on the island. The massive legs at each end make the island look more like a piece of furniture than a built-in.

Above: Since there are few overhead cabinets in the main kitchen area, the tall pantry, with a ladder for access to high cabinets, is utilized for additional storage.
