Gorgeous serenity in this peaceful idyllic and very unique location! The space has been lovingly renovated and updated while keeping original details. The former church has beautiful spiritual energy and is used for private concerts and poetry readings. It is ideal for a wedding ceremony and/ or reception. Up to 8 Guests can comfortably stay in the house overnight if desired. The property is 3 parklike acres with an outdoor swimming pool (open between early June and Labor Day). There are endless interesting places to visit nearby (FDR Home and Presidential Library, Montgomery Place, Olana Historic House, Clermont, Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome, Dia Beacon, Bard College, Rhinebeck Village etc.) and amazing restaurants. Barrytown is 100 miles north of New York City, next to Rhinebeck and easily reached with Amtrak (Rhinecliff). Jackie Kennedy came here to worship before she visited Gore Vidal who lived at Edgewater. After the church was de-consecrated, this is where the Fluxus Art movement was founded, and where John Cage premiered many of his original works. From scenic River Road in Barrytown, turn left before Montgomery Place stately home, drive past a huge oak tree into a quiet dead end road where you will find the former Church of the Sacred Heart. Steps down the road is Edgewater stately home and the majestic Hudson River.
