The surrounding terrain bewitchingly transforms from season to season while Barn on the Pond overlooks a pond, wildflower meadow, and fire pit – representing the four essential elements on which any solid and balanced foundation is based (water, earth, fire and of course, air). The transition from outdoors to indoors is nearly seamless with the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the home, creating an infinite view and feel of the terrain from most vantage points. The entire property is a treat for the five senses: the plush velvety texture of the chairs in the main room; the scent of fresh thyme planted between the rocks of the fire pit; the sound of the birds chirping and the rhythmic croaking of neighborhood frogs; the awe-inspiring vision of the glowing sun descending behind the mountains; and the tart burst of flavor of a chokeberry from the meadow. And in the midst of this symphony of the senses lies Barn on the Pond.
Behind its striking cherry red facade, lies a jewel of an interior, exuding personality and charm and meticulously designed for comfort, convenience, recreation and pleasure. Soaring wood beamed ceilings and cozy fireplaces instantly dazzle guests as they step into what feels like their very own home. They are greeted with a symphony of wood textures and inviting decorative touches as their eyes dance across the spacious living area, perfect for a gathering with friends. They can revel in the beauty of nature in the lovely solarium with an outdoor room above, outside on the spacious deck or from the abundant patio space. With 3 bedrooms, a loft with bed and 2 baths, Barn on the Pond comfortably accommodates up to 12 guests as a vacation rental.

Motivated by his love of the Catskill region’s natural beauty and his commitment to promoting sustainability as a way of life, Tripp Bassett passionately devoted three years to restoring the historic barn into an idyllic country sanctuary. An avid devotee of architecture and interior design, he used his professional eye for detail and aesthetics as well as the skills and talents of his renowned team of collaborators to bring to life his vision of Barn on the Pond. A native of Roswell, New Mexico, he spent his childhood exploring his mother’s garden, a place where his appreciation for the wonders of the outdoors was born and nurtured. Over the years, this matured and developed into an environmental awareness that led him to follow the ecological concept of Seven Generation Sustainability, which urges the current generation to live in a way that benefits the seventh generation into the future – something he was conscious of in all aspects of designing the Barn and its property. It is also through this movement and way of living that he developed his strong sense of community and collaboration. Instagram is barnonthepond.
