Barrytown The $14 million sale of the Unification Theological Seminary Barrytown location has gone to an undisclosed buyer.
The sale was posted on the website of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services/Hudson Valley Properties.
The late Rev. Sun Myung Moon, a Korean-born man who passed away in 2012 at the age of 92, constructed Unification Theological Seminary’s Barryville campus on a 260-acre plot of land at 30 Seminary Drive in Red Hook.
According to the real estate agency, the property consists of four additional barn and garage structures totaling over 8,300 square feet, as well as the main seminary building, which is 118,000 square feet, Massena House, which is 12,799 square feet, Sunnyside Cottage, which is 3,100 square feet, Harvest House, which is 5,600 square feet, Apple Cottage, which is 1,200 square feet, and gatehouse, which is 2,900 square feet.
The land is located in the Institutional and Water Conservation zoning areas.
The Institutional District is designed to support suitable residential, agricultural, conservation, and open space usage along with the extensively planned, campus-like, educational, medical, and other non-profit institutional buildings. Agriculture and single-family homes on five-acre parcels are permitted uses. Additional uses, such as institutional ones, require a specific permit.
Moon was a divisive religious figure who claimed that at the age of sixteen, Jesus appeared to him and gave him the mission to complete his unfinished business by bearing witness to humanity as a whole.
