19th C. Heritage Red Dutch Dairy Barn- Upstate NY

Iconic original heritage red Dutch dairy barn, a testament to Millerton's dairy farm agrarian history. Nearly 200' in length, and 60' wide, the barn has stunning high wood gambrel roof rafters on the upper loft space and a lower flat section where the dairy cows were once housed. The barn is largely in its original state with plenty of rustic country charm. A slice of NY history, the front section of the barn was built in the 19th century as one of Dutchess County's dairies, supplying much of NYC's milk demands until the 80's. Barns across New England were often painted red with a mixture of skimmed milk, lime, and red iron oxide to make a red, plastic-like coating which protected the wood and kept barns warmer in the winter. The barn is situated just behind a 3,350 sf 1850 Greek-Revival farmhouse with historic charm and original architectural features (available for location rental in separate listing). The two structures are located on an 88-acre property, with two natural brooks, a working farm field and a forested hill with walking paths, reaching peak elevation at 1240' with down the Hudson Valley and the Taconic mountain range. A unique venue for a barn wedding, private event, or film/photo shoot, the premises is rented out unoccupied, without furniture, the ideal backdrop for hassle-free quick move-in and set up. 2 hours drive from NYC in the beautiful Hudson Valley area. Please note there are no bathroom, or kitchen facilities in the barn.
