Woodstock is among the Catskills’ most popular towns thanks to its arty, bohemian vibe and associations with a certain famous rock concert (though it actually took place an hour down the road in Bethel). The enclave is a two-hour drive from NYC and is a prime spot for weekending New Yorkers drawn by its mix of mom-and-pop stores, art galleries, scenery and rustic foodie scene.
For those seeking a more permanent change of pace, Purdy Hollow Farm – for sale for $2.85m – might pique some interest.
The 41-acre Hudson Valley estate features a rustic-modern farmhouse, pool, pond, and recently restored 5,000 sq ft barn, which could be used as a stable, art studio, or event space.
The three-bedroom main house spans 3,800 and puts a minimalist spin on the rustic country aesthetic. Think pale beamed ceilings and stone fireplaces paired with a natural colour palette, with leather and wood accents. It’s been renovated from top-to-toe, and each room has a view across the pond, paddocks or woodlands.
An enormous ‘gourmet’ kitchen anchors the ground floor, and the vaulted veranda and saltwater pool are real standouts.

The Woodstock property is located at the end of a quiet road, and just as importantly, views are ‘forever protected’ in all directions, with hiking trails on the doorstep.
The Lillie K Team / Four Seasons Sotheby’s International is listing the Hudson Valley property, which is available with or without furniture.
