Gorgeous rustic retreat in upstate NY

The setting is perfect for this simple home in the northern foothills of the Catskill Mountains.
"The Smithy" is nestled just off of a county road, near a little bridge that crosses the rushing Panther creek in the small community of West Fulton.

Properly named, this home originated as a blacksmith shop in the 1800's. It has seen many a transformation over the years, including the addition of two gas pumps and an orange "Gulf" sign painted on the side of the building in the 1950's. The latest transformation by Jesse James, the founder and creative director of Aesthetic Movement, is a sight to behold. He has slowly remodeled the home since 1999 and has done an unbelievable job of balancing history and charm with modern day upgrades and inspiring design. He now has "The Smithy" on the market for $210,000 which I'm sure he will have no trouble selling to a stylish NY family who needs a relaxing retreat upstate.
