I am the type of person who drives down the road, sees an old building, and then thinks that would be so cool if it was fixed up. I think I may have missed my calling but maybe not...I do have trouble using a hammer. The truth is, it takes a special skill to see a new life in an old ruin.

It is awesome though when you see that someone has had the vision to take what amounts to a ruined property and turn it into a modern space. Such is the case for the old Standard Oil Pump House in Cochecton, New York.

Constructed in 1879 to deliver oil through a pipeline from Pennsylvania to New York City, it has now become a destination Restaurant Bar and entertainment space that you can now own.

I looked at the pictures from the listing and think what they did was so simple but so sophisticated. I am not sure I could have envisioned what the current owners had in mind when they set out to transform this old brick shell but wow it turned out so cool. It could all be yours.
