1911 – West Park, NY – $3,499,000

1398 Broadway, West Park, NY 12493 - For Sale*

This is an expansive property consisting of many buildings, stables, residences, etc. Nestled on over 150 acres and sited next to the Black Creek you'll find remarkable structures displaying the rich history of Colonel Oliver Payne. In 1911, Colonel Payne commissioned the barns to be built by architect Julian Burroughs (the son of author John Burroughs). Payne loved the appearance of local bluestone so much, that he had the barns constructed of it. An elaborate undertaking as much of the stone would have to be quarried, cut and put in place. Taking over seven years to complete, the stunning structures are still visually breath-taking. The enormous horse stable supports a grand clock tower, slate tile roof, arched entries, massive open spaces and stunning bluestone exterior. It has been admired for over a century by all that have seen it. The dairy barn, also known as the creamery, is an equally stunning building with blue stone exterior, an impressive silo and an elaborate marker above the curved entrance. The original caretaker's cottage sits across from the barns. Across an open field you'll find the farm's superintendent's home as it was in 1916. Next to this home is another massive structure, originally used as a chicken coop. In the century since their creation, the structures have leant themselves to many uses. For over 40 years, starting in the 1930's, the Payne house and farm became the Wiltwyck School for Boys. Lady Eleanor Roosevelt helped create the school. Heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson attended the school. Following that, individual buildings have served many uses, including a restaurant, school, light manufacturing, residential rentals, etc. Possible future uses, would include resort, artist community, recording studio, education center, conference center, high end hotel, sports training facility, corporate headquarters, movie studio and more.
