For award-winning architect Rick Joy, the surroundings of his masterful creations are just as important as the structures themselves.
Joy collaborated with the homeowner to create a design both historic and modern, pulling from the rural northeast style. He also focused on building a structure that would complement the natural surroundings.
“The feeling that you have when you’re in and around these buildings is like being transported,” says listing agent Richard Higgerson. “It’s hard to put into words, but I watch people walk through the front doors for the first time and the looks on their faces, it’s really extraordinary.”
The main residence has four bedrooms, peaked ceilings, and an abundance of natural light streaming in from angular windows. The minimalist interior and rustic finishes bring the essence of the surrounding terrain inside its walls, reflecting the natural beauty.
Roy still holds a yearly symposium at Woodstock Farm, a touchstone in his career. He invites young architects and designers to live within the walls of his creation for 10 days while they learn from him and soak in the inspiration.
Although Woodstock Farm is secluded on 200 acres, the amenities of modern life are easily accessible.
“You’re in this extraordinary private kingdom that you own, and then you jump in the car and in 10 minutes you’re in Woodstock,” Higgerson says.
Other metropolitan areas such as Montreal and New York City are just a few hours’ drive away
The right buyer for this property will be someone who loves and appreciates art, Higgerson says.
“The person who chooses this home will have a deep appreciation for the underlying aesthetic that’s at work here,” he continues. “Someone who views this property as a place to come and make a life and as an opportunity to live inside of art, with art, a part of art.”
