Accord Passive Solar Estate, $1.6 million

5011 US highway 209 accord ny

File this house under “A Girl Can Dream, Can’t She?”. It’s pricey for sure, but there’s a lot to this property. The main house is passive solar with a fireplace for additional heating. It also includes a pool house (and a pool, natch. It’s saline) and a carriage house, both beautifully designed (carriage house includes a wood stove). There’s a mile’s worth of trails, creek frontage, foot bridges, gardens, a barn, and a garage large enough for five cars. Okay. We wouldn’t say owning five cars is terribly eco-friendly. We’re just saying the garage is big enough for that many. Oh, and there’s a wine cellar.

Five-Figure Fridays: Church in Accord, $95,001

12 bone hollow road accord ny

It’s been a while since we found a church, and while it appears that this one needs quite a big of love and attention, it has potential. Couple of things to keep in mind: It’s in a fairly remote and rural location, with Stone Ridge about 5 miles away, and Kingston about 17 miles away. It’s located quite close to the road, although it’s not like Bone Hollow is a buzzing thoroughfare. The lot size is small, too, which shouldn’t be a big surprise, since it’s a church and all. There’s no well or septic, so says the listing, but that never scared us away. We’re Upstater, and love to look at fixer-uppers and imagine the possibilities. It’s a lot easier than making possibilities reality.

Rental of the Week: Accord Yurt

Hey, it’s round, it’s solar-powered, has a composting toilet, a bbq and it’s on a 26-acre horse farm. Were you looking for more than that? There’s a king-sized bed and a pull-out futon couch, so good for two couples, or some parents and a couple of kids.

More from the description: “You will be met by a 4 wheel drive Gator and driven out to the Ger, your “Eco Abode” for the week. We will give you a tour of the wagon on which the solar panels are mounted and in which the inverter is housed. We will show you the geothermal air conditioning system and the utility closet which houses the heating system. We will show you everything the Captain or Captains of this “ship” will need to know to have a comfortable stay.”

It’s a vacation rental, starting at $145/night, or up to $1,800 a month.

Solar-powered yurt, Accord. $145/night.

It’s located in 42.5 acres in Ulster County, and it comes with its own 43 foot stone tower. And a floating staircase. And tons of amazing bluestone details. And a geo-thermal heating system. And too many other things to mention.
