The building that sits on just over an acre at 23 Mohonk Road in High Falls was built in 1885. Waiting for its next life the structure was once a church and a museum, but now is just a shell.

High Falls is one of Ulster County's many historic towns which offers shopping and restaurants. This place which could easily be converted into a home sits within walking distance of all High Falls has to offer.

This house was featured last year by Architectural Digest as part of their Hidden Gems series. I loved watching Nich Schiffer from NS Builders break down what could be done to make this amazing structure into a modern home.

In the YouTube video above Nick walks you through the entire house showing you the challenges of buying this "As Is" house in High Falls while making it all seem possible. The idea of having the stream run through the living room may be my favorite.
