If these walls could talk, it would be a story to remember. Once occupied by Levon Helms, member of the renowned music group, The Band, who collaborated with Bob Dylan and before that the famous American novelist, John Dos Passos, this property is knee deep in artist history. This is the original Plochmann house designed by George Kimball Plochmann Sr in 1918 to accommodate his wife's love for painting and his son's love of chamber music. The great room still has most of it's original features including carved wooden lamp fixtures, wood beams, a floor to ceiling stone fireplace and a chamber music balcony. Positioned far off the road side on 7 acres and less than a mile from Woodstock village, the property offers both a rural atmosphere and the convenience of village life at the same time. The house has two covered porches, one that looks over the English Garden and the other next to the front entrance. There are three bedrooms upstairs and two bonus room on the main floor that could be bedrooms, offices or dens totaling up to 7 rooms when including the great room and kitchen. The property includes 3 buildings other than the main house: a garage with 3 individual bays, a small barn with a dog kennel attached and a 700 foot dwelling equipped with installation, water and gas hook ups. This could be easily converted into a guest suite or office since the infrastructure is in place and ready to go. Driving up to this property, you feel like you just transported yourself to the French countryside or the rolling hills of Normandy or rural England. It is truly magical and waiting for someone with vision to put their own modern twist and updates on top of the charm, local history and character.
