Catskill Fungi's John Michelotti explains to mushroom walk participants how to identify a mushroom and discern whether it is edible, medicinal, or poisonous.
afficionado, and Ann Marie Tedeschi of Infinite Roots Herbal Creations, an expert on edible plants. Together, we pried mushrooms carefully from the undersides of fallen trees or plucked them from the ground, and Michelotti taught us the rudiments of identification. He also had plenty of mushroom science to share. “Mushrooms prove you don’t have to have a brain to think or learn,” he noted, then shared stories of mushrooms used for environmental cleanup and to find underground routes for public transportation development. Catskill Fungi runs walks from Roxbury to High Falls from spring until late fall. Although the drought had little impact on last summer's chanterelles and black trumpet mushrooms production, Michelotti said in July that he was hoping for rains throughout August to insure a plentiful harvest of hen-of-the-woods mushrooms in September. "For many of your good edibles, one quick rain and they all come out in basketfuls, whereas some other mushrooms take long, sustained rains," he said. But he added, "One thing about mushroom hunting that I've learned: You can never predict it. Every time you go out, you just have no idea what you'll find. We're constantly finding new things." So, come rain or shine, this fall, says Michelotti, newcomers to amateur mycology—or, as he puts it, "citizen science"—should not be deterred. If you can't join Catskill Fungi for a walk (held until the ground freezes) or a cultivation workshop, at least be sure to look around for mushrooms when you're checking out the fall foliage. But don't ingest your findings unless you've confirmed their safety with an expert. "There's a saying among mycologists," says Michelotti. "There are old mushroom hunters, and there are bold mushroom hunters. But there are no old, bold mushroom hunters." Best,

ohn Michelotti was living in the Westchester County town of Rye and working as a boat captain when he first encountered wild mushrooms. It didn’t take long for him to fall under their spell. It all started, he says, with a walk in the woods with the Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association. He immediately became hooked on finding and identifying mushrooms as well as learning about their various properties and uses. “It started from a desire to grow and source a lot of my own food,” he recalls. “I was interested in finding out what I could eat, so I went on a mushroom walk, and then I kept on going on mushroom walks. Soon I was switching my schedule around so I could go on as many walks as possible.And I started reading books on mycology, and the more I learned, the more interested I became.” Michelotti began devoting his every spare minute to learning about mushrooms’ various uses: culinary, nutritional, medicinal, and ecological. He estimates that, all told, he studied mushrooms 40 hours a week for more than six years—at the end of which he moved back home to Big Indian to his family’s small farm, established over 100 years ago by his great-greatgrandfather, and began helping out at home with the production of eggs, honey, and maple syrup. A year later, in 2014, he founded the organization Catskill Fungi and began cultivating fungi at the farm. Today, Michelotti leads mushroom walks throughout the Hudson Valley; runs cultivation workshops; creates mushroom-inspired art; incorporates edible and medicinal cultivation into residential landscaping design; and produces triple-extracted health tinctures from both cultivated and wild fungi. The organization was founded upon permaculture principles. As such, says Michelotti, Catskill Fungi is all about “helping people and improving the planet through our work with mushrooms.” Like many of the people Michelotti calls his “repeat customers,” I learned about Catskill Fungi at the Kingston Farmers’ Market, where I bought a mushroom tincture, and from there, took my first mushroom walk on a hot day in July at Onteora Lake. Together with about 10 other people, ranging from a toddler to grandparents, I spent a very pleasant two hours walking around the lake in the woods’ cool shade. For that particular walk, Michelotti was accompanied by Erwin Karl, one of the hosts of "The Farm Hour" on WIOC Radio and a fellow mycology

THE ROOM When Jacobs had the room's original curtains duplicated, basing the design on 19th-century black-and-white photographs of the room, he guessed they were red velvet. Later, the 95-year-old great-great-granddaughter of the original owner confirmed Jacobs's hunch.
The red Victorian chairs (bought at auction at Stair Galleries), custom-made curtains, and antique Oriental rug bring out the red chrysanthemums and pheasants' tails in the room's original Suzhoustyle wallpaper.
To repair the foundation, the room was raised by six inches. It now displays a 12.5-by-9.5.-foot antique Oriental rug that Jacobs picked up at an auction in Chatham.
The room is kept sparsely furnished to accommodate large groups and to augment the acoustics, which Jacobs says rivals Carnegie Hall's.

n 2002, when food and lifestyle blogger Kevin Lee Jacobs and his husband, presidential biographer Will Swift, were considering buying their 1826 Federal house in the village of Valatie, they noticed that the music room’s floor was slanted. The building inspector said that judging by the wallpaper, which had no tears, the 950-square-foot room had “settled as much as it ever will settle.” But 10 years later, there was a tear in the Suzhou wallpaper (a style inspired by the famous Chinese garden city of Suzhou), the floorboards were separating, and the two sets of black walnut pocket doors weren’t closing. An architectural engineer advised rebuilding the foundation and lifting the room to make it level with the rest of the house. “You haven’t lived until you’ve witnessed the initial jacking up of a 163-yearold room,” Jacobs later told the 360,000-plus readers of his popular blog, A Garden for the House. “Nerve-wracking doesn’t begin to describe it.” The room was raised six inches. Jacobs was relieved when the pocket doors finally closed again, and the ornate ceiling plaster remained intact. He has yet to repair the almost imperceptible crack in the wallpaper, which depicts pheasants swooping about yew branches and red and cream chrysanthemums, but he found extra rolls of it in the attic. The music room, which seats up to 60 people, is used for concerts and fundraisers for organizations like the Columbia County Historical Society and Albany Pro Musica, as well as political candidates. It is sparsely furnished to 8

augment the acoustics, which Jacobs says “are better than Carnegie Hall.” Permanent furnishings include two Victorian chairs, a Federal mahogany games table, a mahogany Victorian music cabinet, and a red Oriental rug that highlights the wallpaper's red accents and the red velvet window, which were custom made, using 19th-century photographs of the room. Jacobs' favorite architectural features are the mahogany fireplace and elaborately carved overmantel mirror. To clean it, Jacob mounts a 6-foot stepladder, which makes him appreciate why the house once required 10 live-in servants. Indeed, Jacobs’s blog was born out of trying to live in the house like people did in the 19th century, as well as years of developing recipes and creating gardens (he has four). But would he and Swift have still purchased the house if they had known that the music room foundation would require a new foundation? “Yes, absolutely,” says Jacobs. “We felt that it was our duty to save this long-neglected treasure, and to restore it to its former glory.” When asked if the music room is his favorite one, Jacobs responds the way a parent would, insisting that he loves all of the rooms “in equal measure,” and adds, “I feel spiritually connected to the house, like the house wants me here.”

Deborah Berke, essay by Rick Moody, afterword by Marc Leff
Clean, modern lines and elegant simplicity characterize architect Deborah Berke's designs, and the same principles apply to this spare and lovely book. Its photographs are laid out with just a few lines of text, making the point with concise understatement. "Need and desires intersect around solitude and togetherness," Berke writes, adding: "We want and need to spend time alone and with others. A house must provide spaces for both conditions to happen with ease and in comfort." She likens the architect's work process to that of a distiller or tailor, making something from scratch within certain parameters. Embracing the concepts of multitasking spaces and connectivity, she provides eight basic rules that articulate her design philosophy for residential structures, whether Hudson Valley homes, reimagined New England barns, or Long Island beach houses. Renowned novelist Rick Moody (The Ice Storm) contributes an essay entitled "Rules for Neighbors."
Feeding the Heart Patrick Dollard and Cesare Casella
The Center for Discovery, 2016
Food is one of life's great pleasures. But the directors and chefs of the Catskills' Center for Discovery, an educational and residential facility for people with complex disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, and medical frailties, also believe food is medicine. Turning the notion of "institutional food" on its head, these educational and culinary visionaries take a holistic approach to growing and eating the healthiest possible ingredients. Food becomes therapeutic in every way: Residents benefit from the hands-on processes of farming, and the additive-free, seasonal food conveys countless health benefits. Co-authored by the Center's CEO and resident Patrick Dollard and Department of Nourishment Arts chef Cesare Casella, this thought-provoking book includes enticing recipes from a group of New York celebrity chefs who embrace the Center's "Seed to Belly" philosophy and welcome the general public into the food/health conversation.
Wildlings Mary Anne McLean, foreword by Robin A. Jess

Sisco Publishing, 2016
Gorgeously illustrated, this book by Rhinebeck-based "artist, author, and explorer" Mary Anne McLean is a meditative stroll between covers. Ranging from Westchester County to coastal Maine, McLean draws and reflects on familiar plants (and occasional creatures) in exquisite detail, watching them grow over time. Her delicate, up-slanted handwriting enfolds the ink and watercolor-pastel artwork, slowing the reader to the contemplative pace of a walker encountering a blossoming flower on a morning walk. The book is divided into three sectionsâ€”Fields, Woods, and Watery Places--each with an accompanying essay. Robin A. Jess, executive director of the American Society of Botanical Artists, contributes an appreciative foreword, observing that McLean "has fallen under the spell of nature. She approaches phenomena with wonder." Her original drawings are housed in the permanent archives of the New York Botanical Garden's library.

Blake Arrowood (left) and Jacob Meglio enjoy their brew where it tastes best: in the hopyard.
From Field to Glass
An organic farmhouse brewery grows its own hops.
By Erik Ofgang | Photographs by Matt Petricone
acob Meglio knows it sounds a little out there, but he swears the beer he makes as brewmaster at Arrowood Farms Brewery in Accord tastes better in the hopyard. And once you’ve had a pint of beer from Arrowood Farms on the farm itself, in the shadow of the hop vines (which grow on eyecatching 20-foot-tall trellises), amidst the sights and surprising sounds of the Norman-Rockwell-as-a-beer-enthusiast setting, you tend to agree. The farmhouse brewery, which opened in July, is an organic farm where local ingredients and sustainability are not just marketing buzzwords but a way of life. “We wanted to brew beers that captured the flavor of this region,” says Blake Arrowood, who conceived of the farm brewery and handles the agricultural side of the operation. To accomplish that goal, Meglio is focused on brewing approachable beers that highlight local ingredients. Behind a homestead-style taproom, a one-acre hop yard stretches out. 14
online at upstatehouse.com
There are 10 acres of rye currently under production on the 48-acre farm. Inside the hopyard are tables where guests can sit and enjoy their beer and play popular brewery games like cornhole. The farm is also home to a Noah’s ark assortment of animals, each playing a role in the sustainable circle of brewing life on the farm. More than 100 heritage breed ducks regularly wander through the hopyard, sometimes interacting with guests and quacking frequently, not in the grating Aflac Duck way, but in a peaceful bird-chirping manner. The ducks produce waste that is rich in nitrogen, which helps fertilize the hop fields. Then there are sheep that provide natural weed and pest control, and pigs that consume the spent grain from the brewing process, ultimately providing farm fresh meat and ensuring nothing goes to waste. There are also bees, which pollinate the farm’s flowers and produce honey that will eventually be used in some beers. Some of these animal products can be found in the taproom’s limited but flavorful food options, including a wonderful deviled duck egg.

Hopping through Time Prior to Prohibition, a majority of the country’s hops were grown in the New York region. But Prohibition, with the help of a mildew disease that was attacking many East Coast hop crops, put an end to commercial hop farming in the region. After Prohibition, hop farming moved to the Pacific Northwest, where the vast majority of US hops are still grown. Of late, however, more hopyards have returned to New York, thanks to the increasingly popular craft beer movement and 2013 legislation that allows farm breweries in New York to obtain a farm brewery license and operate in a similar fashion to the state’s farm wineries. “When New York State passed the farm brewing legislation we just took it pretty literally,” Arrowood jokes. However, the seeds of the farm brewer’s inspiration were planted much earlier. A native of North Carolina, Arrowood moved after college to Southeast Asia, where he taught English and found inspiration in small agricultural communities “brought together by their land, their food, and their drink.” After his travels overseas, he was drawn to New York City. “Having grown up in Small Town USA, I always knew I had to try New York, and Brooklyn was the obvious choice,” he recalls. Though he enjoyed living in the city’s hippest borough, he found himself drawn more and more to the land. “I think Brooklyn actually brought out my inner plant nerd and farmer,” says Arrowood. “I wanted what I couldn't find in the city—the woods and a garden. That's when my eyes turned upstate. Having close friends from the area, and visiting a few times, it was intriguing enough to make me pack my bags and move, again.” An internship at the Hudson Valley Seed Library was a “gateway to a community of like-minded people, lots of young people and older people alike,” Arrowood recalls. “It's this intergenerational place where there's a lot of 16

sharing and creating. I found here what I had found in those villages overseas—it truly felt special. I was sold from the first day.” Arrowood settled in Ulster County, and after partnering with like-minded people, secured farmland, beginning the three-year process of getting the farm brewery up and running. About a year and a half into the project, Meglio came on board as head brewer and a full business partner. Meglio, a Hudson Valley native, had begun experimenting with home brewing while studying premed at City College of New York, and quickly became obsessed with the craft. At Arrowood, he experiments with many local ingredients, and both he and Arrowood live near the farm and brewery. Cascade hops are one of six hop varieties planted on the farm. They are a popular style of hops found in many beers, but the New York terroir creates a cascade hop that is distinct from its West Coast cousins. “Our cascade here is a little more piney and a little less citrusy,” Meglio says.
Clockwise from top right: Blake Arrowood takes in the bouquet from dried hops grown at his farm; in the taproom, an amber pint of Arrowood's homegrown IPA; animals play a vital role in the farm brewery's process, and are rewarded with belly rubs from Jacob Meglio.
Those differences can be tasted in the brewery’s easy-drinking IPA, which has a rustic quality that is hop forward but lacks the bitter aftertaste of many IPAs. Another standout beer is the Stout Pig, a flavorful stout that will appeal to Guinness lovers. Of course, as good as these beers taste in the taproom, when you carry them outside to the farm they become a part of the menagerie of nature, and, like Meglio says, as crazy as it sounds, they taste just a little bit better. The taproom at Arrowood Farms is open Saturday, noon to 8pm, and Sunday, noon to 6pm. ArrowoodFarms.com

Beauty, Culture, and Bucolic Splendor By Niva Dorell | Photos by JR Delia
estled at the foothills of the northern Catskills, Durham is a captivating blend of town and country. It offers stunning vistas of the mountains and Catskill Creek Valley, and, on clear days, a five-state view of Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and New York’s Adirondacks. It’s a great place to own a motorcycle. Durham’s 21 miles of roads were designated a Scenic Byway “of extraordinary scenic quality” by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation in 1991. The small town has a strong community and some of the Hudson Valley’s best-preserved Federal, Dutch Colonial, centerhall Colonial, and Greek Revival homes. There, kids can play outside safely, and adults can enjoy sophisticated farm-to-table dinners at a real working farm. First settled around 1755 by Dutch settlers from Durham, Connecticut, the Town of Durham (which includes the hamlets Cornwallville, East Durham, South Windham, and Oak Hill) was officially named in 1805. Its early industries included leather tanning, wood, grain, and iron. By 1845, farming comprised about 88 percent of Durham’s total acreage, and by 1875 about 60 percent of the town’s families lived on farms. In the early 1900s, the town became a popular destination for New Yorkers traveling by rail.

Today, East Durham is a center of Irish tourism, thanks to its Irish Cultural Center, and the northern Catskills are known as the “Irish Alps.” Durham’s growing revitalization, abundance of natural and cultural activities, and increasing renown are attracting newcomers, especially New Yorkers, many of whom are restoring old properties or building new ones from scratch. Today, second homes are a driving force for the local economy. The Scene Whether you’re standing in the center of Durham or wandering outside town, there is pastoral beauty—especially heading west on Route 145 to catch the sun setting behind the Catskills—and plenty of peace and quiet. In fact, the loudest noises to be heard are the occasional motorcycle in summer or snow removal truck in winter. Durham is devoid of strip malls and supermarkets (the nearest are in Greenville and Cairo, nine and 12 miles away, respectively), and, except for a few blocks in East Durham and Oak Hill, there’s little walkable shopping. For essentials, East Durham offers the Lawyer’s General Store; on Route 145, Dean’s Mill carries pet and garden supplies, as well as winter clothing. The

On Friday nights, residents and weekenders congregate at Mooney’s Auction, a full-service auction house, or head to Drive-In 32 for movies and a beer garden in nearby Greenville. Durham gets livelier in summer, when tourists flock to its various festivals, including the annual Irish Cultural Festival, held on Memorial Day weekend at East Durham’s fairgrounds; Catskills Irish Arts Week, featuring Irish musicians, dancers, and artisans, in July; and the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, which draws thousands of visitors from all over the world to Durham every July. Outdoor activities include go-karting at Supersonic Speedway (open spring and fall too), water sliding at Zoom Flume Water Park, and horseback riding at K&K Equestrian Center. Eateries are rare, but always charming: There’s Angel’s Café in East Durham, the Yellow Deli in Oak Hill, and the Bee’s Knees Café at Heather Ridge Farm, a culinary gem in nearby Preston Hollow, which offers year-round weekend brunches and a monthly supper club consisting of local meats and produce. The Market Durham presents a wide variety of properties perfect for a primary or second home. In July, there were 48 residential listings, ranging from a two-bedroom, one-bathroom, 800-square-foot single-family home on two acres for $30,000 to a five-bedroom, 4,820-square-foot home, with five full bathrooms and three half bathrooms, on 10.62 acres of scenic mountain views for $565,000. As of July, the median listing price for the previous 12 months was $202,680, compared with a median selling price of $110,000. A custom-designed 3,728-square-foot log home on 10-plus acres with mountain views and pond lists at $799,900; a quaint 1850s farmhouse in mint condition, located in the center of East Durham, lists at $110,000; and a modern 1,600-square-foot house on three acres with five-state views is priced at $355,000.

Dark Past, Bright Future By Kandy Harris | Photos by Eva Deitch
ssining’s grittiness belies its tony Westchester County location. It’s unlike Yonkers, which is replete with big-box stores and rebuilt waterfront public areas. And it’s unlike storied Tarrytown, home to Washington Irving’s Sunnyside. Ossining’s history is both sweaty— thanks to the many industries that formerly flocked there—and controversial concerning Sing Sing Correctional Facility’s use of prison labor in its construction. Today, Ossining’s antique architecture, which is steadily being refurbished, rubs elbows with strip malls and railroad tracks. It offers unparalleled views of the Hudson River and a tight-knit community that values diversity and is one of Westchester’s last strongholds of affordable residential real estate. The town of Ossining, which includes Ossining village and part of Briarcliff Manor, supports redevelopment through organizations like Grow Ossining, an investment project that allows residents to invest in Ossining’s revitalization. Recent redevelopment projects include the public library and several multiuse buildings. More residential housing is springing up along Ossining’s waterfront and Main Street, including developments like Harbor Square and Avalon, making Ossining attractive to those priced out of New York City. Once upon a time, the vast majority of Ossining belonged to one man: Frederick Philipse. He bought the land from the Matinecock tribe in 1685 and the manor endured until it was confiscated by the state in 1779. Afterward, it was divided up, with its shoreline developed near the Industrial Revolution’s end. Once the railroad came, Ossining’s population swelled, and many of its

The Scene Ossining delights in celebrating its history, the most visible piece of which is Sing Sing. Built in 1826, the prison is an imposing fortress on the Hudson River, but its existence doesn’t detract from the village’s charm. Quite the contrary, it seems. Currently, there’s a proposal on the table to turn Sing Sing’s c. 1936 power station into a $25 million museum and visitor’s center, which has both official and public support. Meanwhile, visitors can learn about the notorious prison’s past on display at the Sing Sing Museum, located in the Ossining Recreation Center. Other historical venues include the Ossining Historical Society Museum, located at the Richard Austin House, a classic 1878 Victorian listed on the National Historic Registry. The Society hosts walking tours of Ossining’s historic district and houses. Cyclists, runners, and walkers are flocking to the new Sing Sing Kill Greenway path. There’s plenty to see in the natural world at Teatown Lake Reservation, the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail, and the Hudson Hills Golf Course. Kid-friendly Louis Engel Waterfront Park features a playground and water park. Like its counterparts to the north, Ossining has a creative side. The Ossining Arts Council has a gallery on Main Street and hosts art events throughout the community. The Art Barn is a popular gallery and framing and art supply store. Ossining’s eateries include two long-standing and acclaimed institutions,

the Boathouse Restaurant on the Hudson River and Goldfish Dining, as well as a generous smattering of Mexican, pizza, sushi, and standard diners in the village. A farmers’ market is held on Saturdays. One of Ossining’s strongest suits is its proximity to other areas of culture. A train to Grand Central takes an hour or less. The Tarrytown Music Hall is a 15-minute drive south; Peekskill, another riverfront community undergoing a renaissance, is a 15-minute drive north. The Market Current housing stock in Ossining includes a half-dozen properties priced over a million, including a $4.9-million 40-acre equestrian farm. The majority of single-family homes on the market are within the $200,000 to $400,000 range, making Ossining considerably cheaper than Tarrytown. The village of Ossining’s housing market is also about half the price of neighboring Briarcliff Manor’s. The village offers many turnkey properties, split-level ranches, contemporaries, and Craftsman-style homes, as well as vintage Colonials, Victorians, Federals, and a handful of fixer-uppers. Ossining’s five-figure market is made up of single-bedroom units, lofts, studio apartments, and condos. Ossining’s rental market consists mainly of units in developments like Avalon and Harbor Square (about $6,000 per month) and apartments in smaller complexes and houses ($1,200 to $1,400 per month).

A view of the Paysons’ main house from their studio space. “Hugging the hillside, making the house very discreet and small, felt like the right thing to do,” says architect and homeowner Karin Payson.
| FALL 2016 • 2 3
ike most architects designing homes for themselves, Karin Payson wasn’t blessed with the robust project budgets that many of her clients enjoy. But there was one luxury she could afford that her clients couldn’t: time. Currently living and working in San Francisco, Payson and her husband Michael, a videographer, both have East Coast roots and had long been thinking about how to slowly transition their lives and careers from the Bay Area to the Hudson Valley at some point in the future. But the future arrived sooner than expected when 16 sloping acres went up for sale on Lake Drive, near Rhinebeck, right next door to Payson’s cousin’s house. The couple wasn’t ready to build, neither financially nor conceptually, but the opportunity was too good to pass up. They bought the lot in 2003 and decided to take their time getting to know the land before building. They took 10 years. Their soon-to-be-neighbors made a clearing and built them a tent platform. The couple spent a few weeks every year camping out on the site, walking the land, watching the light change, picking up rocks, and dreaming. Payson toyed with the idea of carving viewing areas out of the thick groves of trees, but over time she came to love the privacy that they provide. “Hugging the hillside, making the house

very discreet and small, felt like the right thing to do,” she says. “I wanted to feel like we were really inhabiting this site instead of ignoring it.” Ironically, Payson’s inspiration to build a house that felt in harmony with the site and respected the history of Hudson Valley architectural styles came from her experience on the West Coast. She had seen what happens when transplanted East Coasters ignore the punishing slopes of San Francisco and Marin County, building suburban New Jersey-style ranch houses as if they were on a flat site. “You see these houses with decks 30 feet up in the air and all this land underneath that’s wasted,” she says. “It looks bizarre.” So, in Rhinebeck, as she’s done with clients in the Bay Area, Payson kept the house’s profile and envelope low, burrowing into the hill. The result is a house that, from the initial approach, seems small, unobtrusive, and reserved. But packed inside are 1,970 soaring square feet that hold a large open living space and three sleeping areas that are both spatially and acoustically isolated. Building sustainably on a budget meant that Payson had to think about how the house’s orientation could passively control the interior climate instead of tricking it out with expensive equipment. Burying the majority of the house and keeping the north side relatively free of exposures allowed Payson to take advantage of

the ground’s warmth and shield the house from winter winds. The south side is largely given over to glass, and during the day, expansive windows flood its interior with light, illuminating the walls’ muted color palette of pale greens and blues, and mirroring the colors of the trees and sky. A walnut tree felled from the property became the kitchen counter as well as the staircase’s railings and bannisters, adding warmth and harmonizing with the wooden floors. The house’s furnishings and fixtures have been kept subtle and spare so that nothing detracts from the views that dominate every bedroom and the main living space thanks to large windows and glass doors. A few bluestone steps up the hill from the house is a 450-squarefoot structure that serves as Payson’s work studio, yoga room, and, in a pinch, another bedroom. In one of the project’s few overt nods to luxury, the outcropping also holds a richly wooded sauna, connected to the studio via a breezeway. Like the main house, the outcropping is bedecked with wide windows, but the slightly higher elevation and carefully chosen window placement makes it difficult to see inside one building from the other. Despite their close proximity, each building remains its own secluded retreat. The Paysons rent the house out for most of the year, returning to Rhinebeck every fall for vacation and again in winter to celebrate the holidays there. But the more time they spend in the house, the harder they find it to stay away, Payson says. So the couple recently got clearance to sublet their house in San Francisco as well, so that they can begin transitioning back to the East Coast. “I miss waking up to the sunrise [in Rhinebeck],” Payson says. “I miss the connection to nature, the smells, the peacefulness.”

Lofty Vision A restored Dutch barn becomes a serene modern home By Janine Stankus | Photographs by Karen Pearson
ack in the early 2000s, Men’s Fitness magazine creative director Andy Turnbull read an article about restoring barns, and began dreaming about one day turning a barn into a home of his own. America’s antique barns reminded him of the English countryside near Southampton, where he grew up. A decade later, Turnbull got his chance. He and his partner, Jessica Montemayor, a New York City native whose career spans the TV, fashion, music, and hospitality industries, were feeling cramped by their city digs, and began looking for space upstate. One afternoon, in the Town of Saugerties, just north of the village, they discovered a lofty 19th-century Dutch barn on 24 wooded acres, which looked striking even beneath a scrim of snow. “‘Wow, that’s amazing, imagine living somewhere like that’—I believe those were my exact words,” recalls Turnbull. He suffered a kind of reverse sticker-shock when he found out how feasible making it their own would be. “You could never get this in England,” he says. “A place in the country would be worth four to five times the amount [we paid]. There’s less space in England, basically. America has a lot of space.” Built for hay thrashing in the late 1800s, the 2,250-square-foot traditional Dutch barn had already been moved about 63 miles from Carlisle to Saugerties in 2004 by its former owner, jewelry designer Jordan Schlanger. Its thick hemlock frame—beautifully restored using traditional joinery and pegs—is 85 percent original, supported by salvaged beams from other barns. Schlanger installed electricity and added concrete floors and radiant heat, but kept the interior raw. “It was literally just a shell—a beautiful shell,” says Montemayor. The sheer openness of the building, renamed Bellwood Barn, is what attracted Turnbull and Montemayor, and that’s something the couple has retained in their redesign of the barn as both a home and rental space for weddings and special events. After purchasing the barn in May 2011, Turnbull and Montemayor hired local architect Dave Minch and New Jersey builder Paul Palecek, who became partners in the year-long process of converting the barn. They installed an industrial kitchen

adorned with copper piping, and added three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and an office/extra bedroom, split among the ground floor and a new loft, bringing the building’s total usable space up to 3,750 square feet. It was Montemayor’s idea to install steel pipe banisters to keep the staircases and balconies open. On the second floor, the master bedroom, open-plan office, and bathroom open up to the main structure’s skylights. “Because why would you put a ceiling on it?” asks Turnbull. “Why would you put a ceiling on anything?” That liberating sensibility “was probably the motivating factor in this whole thing—always feeling like you’ve got space above your head,” he continues. “Because, living in New York, you have the exact opposite experience. Everyone does. You constantly have a ceiling. So every opportunity there was to [create] a higher, bigger area, we did.” The couple wanted to keep the décor simple and modern, to avoid feeling like they were “living in a museum,” says Turnbull. The result is an eclectic but organic assemblage that brings the “beautiful shell” to life. The plain, painted sheetrock walls, which are framed by raw beams, are hung with haunting black-and-white photographs from India, music posters, film paraphernalia, and art prints. Turnbull hand-built a rustic wood dining table from slabs sourced in Ohio and turned a small wooden door from a cave in Morocco into a coffee table. The sliding doors to the second-floor master bedroom come from a temple in Kyoto, Japan—they mimic the barn doors below, with burnished embellishments that reflect diamond-shaped cutouts at the peak of the cathedral ceiling above. Benali, the couple’s brown-spotted Bengal cat, stalks about the place like a small leopard. “The house is her playground,” says Montemayor. “She sleeps on the loft and can gallop across the beams for hours.”

The couple’s aesthetic choices naturally vibe with the space itself. The roof pitches at an impressive 30 feet high, with added skylights drawing in a glow of sunlight, and the signature symmetry of the Dutch architecture contributes to the space’s feeling of sanctuary. In the warmer months, the couple likes to move the sofa from the ground-floor living area outside to the bluestone patio, as well as open up both sides of the barn to take in all of the sweeping views at once. When the barn’s huge 12-foot-by-12-foot doors have been slid apart, light pours across the polished floors and the space seems to sigh all the way through. “It’s an unusual feeling,” Turnbull says, surveying the space from the loft. “It’s almost like being in a church.”

Modern Treasure Boxes
By C.B. Wismar | Photos by Eva Deitch & Jim Maximowicz
online at upstatehouse.com
odern Treasure Chests,” an exhibition at McTeigue and McClelland, a fine jewelry atelier in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, is ostensibly about the works on display: imaginative jewelry boxes in a wide variety of styles made by American artisans and furniture makers. Each of the 15 participating artisans has addressed the challenge of working on a scale smaller than the usual tables and chairs, chests, and sideboards in wildly different ways. But the treasures in this show extend beyond the jewelry boxes themselves to their makers, thanks to their notable status as well as the enduring friendships they share. All of the artisans involved in the show are graduates of the legendary Program in Artisanry, or PIA, that thrived at Boston University from 1975 to 1985, and is an important figure in the American Furniture Movement. Some are avant-garde artists, like Tommy Simpson, who’s based in New Preston, Connecticut. Others create in a traditional style, like Timothy Philbrick of Wakefield, Rhode Island. Wendy Maruyama, who recently retired as professor of woodworking and furniture design at San Diego State University, draws from her Japanese heritage and a feminist perspective. Mark Del Guidice, who’s based in Concord, Massachusetts, displays a whimsical perspective and freely uses color in his work. “Friendship is the one thing that really matters,” says Simpson, who lives and works in New Preston, Connecticut. “We’ve all tried to create a more livable world through our art and our hope that our audience will respond to both the imagination and the craft. And now we have a chance to get together, again. It’s like an artistic family reunion.” James Schriber, a traditional furniture maker who reimagines the midcentury-modern style in his furniture and creates strong contemporary millwork in his New Milford, Connecticut, workshop, agrees. “We came from all over, spent intense days and hours and weeks together, then went our separate ways,” he says. “Into the ’90s, galleries sprang up featuring the American Furniture Movement. Museums were clamoring for our work, and [then], slowly, it ended. But friendships don’t end. This is a wonderful chance to come together and share our work.” Schriber’s connection to the show goes even deeper than the California walnut chest he created for it. He also built the cabinetry for the fine jewelry designed and made by gallery owner Tim McClelland, another alumnus of the PIA, albeit in metal and jewelry. “Modern Treasure Chests” was the brainchild of McClelland. He and his business partner, Walter McTeigue, have built a unique jewelry business in Great Barrington. McClelland’s bold, contemporary designs complement the stones expertly selected by McTeigue, who also acquires and shows fine estate jewelry. “When we moved into our new atelier,” says McClelland, “we foresaw the opportunity to have exhibits in the large, main showroom. The exhibits would not be jewelry, but [would be] jewelry related. With the great connections made at PIA that have endured across the disciplines, the notion of a jewelry box show made great sense.”

“It would be prohibitive to build and ship unique pieces of furniture cross-country,” agrees Del Guidice. “But creating a smaller piece, just as elegantly, allowed us all to participate. For John S. Everdell of Charleston, Massachusetts, the artisans’ prolific careers as well as their close ties came about as a result of the PIA’s “intense and very organic” program. “We took classes in each other’s disciplines,” he recalls. “We learned what it was like to work outside of our own areas of expertise. It’s what allowed us to appreciate what each of us could do.” Everdell’s work uniquely combines the substantial look of New England furniture with a strong Oriental influence that he calls “premodernist.” Throughout their careers, the 15 artisans have taken their talents to workshops and studios from coast to coast. Some have combined their creative passion with the opportunity to teach. Rosanne Somerson, for example, created the Rhode Island School of Design’s furniture department, and was recently named the institution’s president. Tom Loeser designs uniquely functional furniture while chairing the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s art department. Whether the pursuit has been academic or the creation of elegant furniture, the precise skills of each of the 15 artisans presenting their work in “Modern Treasure Chests” has become the magnet that brought these long-distance friends back together. If each of the featured jewelry boxes could share an emotion, the show would likely be a collective expression of all of the joy of a Thanksgiving dinner that reunites a talented, resilient family. Modern Treasure Chests is being presented at McTeigue & McClelland, 454 Main Street (Route 7) in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, through September 24 (Tuesday through Saturday, 10am to 5pm).

COVER HOUSE FEATURE
Land of Enchantment An arts-and-crafts home charms its secluded setting. By Timothy Malcolm Photos by Deborah DeGraffenried
online at upstatehouse.com
t’s fitting that Milton Glaser, the world-famous graphic designer, known for expressing the essence of both New York State and the Woodstock Festival in single images—the I ♥ NY logo and the psychedelic poster of Bob Dylan, respectively—should live in an iconic house in Woodstock, historically home to artists. Glaser and his wife, Shirley, have owned the house and its surrounding 79 acres since 1962. While Glaser is also the co-founder of New York magazine, Shirley is an author and photographer. Their house, at 148 Lewis Hollow Road, is definitive of the Arts-and-Crafts style popularized in the late 19th to early 20th century. It’s resplendent with the gabled roofs, stone columns, and hand-crafted woodwork that reveals delightful surprises. The Glasers discovered Woodstock in 1959, when they began visiting friends there, frequently sleeping in corn cribs. Through their friends, they met Louise Hasbrouck Zimm, the widow of sculptor Bruno Zimm. During the Great Depression, the Zimms had purchased what was then a small circa-1840s cottage, and Bruno Zimm had begun renovating the house. Zimm’s work is steeped in the arts-and-crafts tradition. He carved totems to top the stone columns framing the house and intricate images of woodland creatures to compose the frame of the front door. If you look closely, you’ll find faces on the wooden columns and wooden birds peering from beneath the house’s gabled roof. These whimsical touches, along with the vast, calming forest that surrounds the house, enchanted the Glasers. So when they heard that Hasbrouck Zimm was selling the house, they approached her as she sat in a wicker chair outside the front door. “Milton said, ‘We’ll take it,’” Shirley recalls. “And Louise said, ‘I suppose you want to see inside?’” The interior combines Bruno Zimm’s masterful eye for detail with the Glasers’ love of the Mediterranean style. Poetic messages carved by Zimm in stone and wood adorn two fireplaces, which still stand in the living room and dining rooms, both of which remain from the original house. The living room also includes the original staircase—its hand-carved post resembles rope knots—and a small alcove decorated with Italian-inspired patterned tile. Over time, the Glasers added a kitchen, studio, office space, glass-ceiling sunroom, and spacious great room. The two-level kitchen is made for versatility. A raised platform holds a galley kitchen with ample counter space, wood cabinets, a contemporary range, and built-in storage. The lower level can be used as a secondary dining room. Both spaces are dressed with tile flooring to reflect simple Mediterranean living.

“There’s something primordial about it that makes you very happy.” The downstairs studio space is massive, and could be converted into a substantial master bedroom. It features radiant heat, tile flooring, and floorto-ceiling windows that open to the backyard’s in-ground, heated pool. Upstairs are three comfortable bedrooms, including the current master, which features a stained-glass window looking out to the sunroom. The sunroom, with its wooden frame and tile floor, is blanketed by natural light thanks to its arched glass ceiling. The space acts as a bridge from the original Arts-and-Crafts structure to the focal point of the addition: a 50-footlong great room with gabled ceiling, tall windows, and a black-and-white tile fireplace that commands attention. It’s a perfect space for gatherings. The entire property is designed as much for solitude as it is for friendliness. Shirley began gardening on the property in 1962, and her work has produced clusters of mature hydrangeas, crabapples, and Japanese maple trees that help enclose the property from the outside world. You can sit on the bluestone patio and gaze for hours at the flora, she notes. “You can’t see any aspect of civilization from this vantage point,” says Milton. “You’re really protected, and in a quiet environment, hearing only birds and seeing animals. There’s something primordial about it that makes you very happy.” But the Glasers’ house is as convenient as it is private and secluded. It’s located about a mile and a half from the center of Woodstock, which bustles with an artistic energy—thanks in part to the Glasers for keeping such creative company over the last six decades.

Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty Office: 845.679.2255 | Mobile: 845.901.6129 firstname.lastname@example.org | villagegreenrealty.com Truly a treasure, this unique and private Arts-and-Crafts home with extraordinary contemporary additions is set within a protected garden oasis and surrounded by 76 acres of woodland, yet is only a five-minute drive to the center of Woodstock. The stone-and-glass house has been home to two distinguished artists who both have deeply loved the mountainside from which it rises. Bruno Zimm built the home in the early 20th century. Milton and Shirley Glaser, the home’s second owners, drew a long list of iconic figures to Woodstock during the last half of the 20th century, and can be credited with shaping the course of the Woodstock community. They artfully added a contemporary aesthetic to this Arts-and-Crafts home by installing plenty of glass and filling the house with light. Glaser’s studio overlooks the pool, gardens, and woods, from which he has long drawn artistic inspiration. The ground floor combines cozy living spaces with sunny, sleekly renovated additions and a 50-foot-long cathedral-ceilinged living/great room that’s perfect for entertaining large groups or blissful contemplation. Each of the house’s additions opens out to the forest, gardens, or bluestone patios. A regulation-size boules court is adjacent to the pool. At the far end of the pool area, a rustic gate opens to acres of pristine woodland awaiting exploration. The property is also bordered by a stream that can be heard much of the year. upstate HOUSE

OVER THREE DECADES OF SUCCESS
THE LUNDY ESTATE
Famed and fabled, the Lundy Estate is an enchanting 62-acre compound that’s nestled amid thousands of acres of the Vernooy Kill State Forest, miles from the nearest neighbor, offering unparalleled privacy. The mountainous backdrop of the estate, which is bordered by the Vernooy Kill itself, shields a series of residences, outbuildings, allees, vistas and stonework that are unrivaled. The gracious 8-bedroom, 7500+ square foot home, clad in French limestone, presents a classically designed façade coupled with a modern floor plan and the 5-bedroom guesthouse, at 3400+ square feet, shares the same design and finish elements of the main house. A tennis court and gunite pool are set amid vast fields of green near the homes, while toward the north end of the property there’s a pleasant surprise at every turn. The barn, paddocks and chicken coop offer plenty of opportunity to raise livestock and farm animals, and plenty of good, arable land awaits the planting of food crops. Farther along, and nestled in the woods, lies a lone writer’s cabin with a vintage river-rock fireplace, easily repurposed as an artist’s studio or yoga space. And then there’s the lodge, Mr. Lundy’s old hunting cabin, one of the most evocative and romantic buildings this real estate agent has ever seen. The conservation easement on the property, coupled with the state forest preserve that surrounds it, ensure that the estate will remain the private oasis that it is now.

There is no building, however grand in scale or complex in its design, that Michael DelPriore can’t duplicate, down to the smallest detail, in miniature. His modeling portfolio runs the gamut, from private homes to expansive urban-planning projects. It includes churches and synagogues, New York City schools, historic sites like Thomas Cole Studio, and Jersey Shore compounds. Recently, DelPriore flew to California to hand-deliver a model of a Tim Burton movie set to Ransom Riggs, author of the children’s novel, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. One of his all-time favorite projects is a model he made of a New York City apartment for a couple ready to downsize. He recreated their paintings, furniture, and rugs to preserve their former home’s every detail. DelPriore studied architecture at Pratt Institute in the 1970s, intending to design houses. But after graduation, he took a job as a model-maker for a large Manhattan firm, and realized he loved downscaling. He founded Ryerson Studios, an architectural modelmaking business, in New York City in 1985. When digital technology began impacting the model-making industry, replacing hand-built models with 2D renderings of 3D designs, DelPriore took Ryerson Studios to Kingston. “When I

started doing this,” he says, “there were hundreds of model makers in Manhattan; now there are less than 10.” Then, looking slightly bemused, he adds, “Maybe 10.” The firm has survived thanks to low overhead, exceptional artistry, and DelPriore’s willingness to hold his clients’ hands throughout the entire process. His clients receive work-in-process photos, and choose all the materials, from paint colors to balsa wood to stone. DelPriore’s portfolio includes models that light up, roofs that lift off to reveal fitted-out interiors, miniscule cars parked in little driveways, and even a tiny man with his hand on his son’s shoulder in the model for Beacon’s Independent Dine-In Cinema. A Queen Anne revival building model features walls mitred down to the balcony floor, a miniscule brick-patterned façade, a real wooden frame for the front door, and tiny plexiglass windows. On the studio wall, a photograph of the model of the National Harbor in Maryland, almost passes for the real thing with its sailboats, parking garages filled with cars, and sandy beaches sporting infinitesimal picnic tables. —Linda Codega RyersonStudio.com
