Motivated by his love of the Catskill region’s natural beauty and his commitment to promoting sustainability as a way of life, Tripp Bassett passionately devoted three years to restoring the historic barn into an idyllic country sanctuary. An avid devotee of architecture and interior design, he used his professional eye for detail and aesthetics as well as the skills and talents of his renowned team of collaborators to bring to life his vision of Barn on the Pond. A native of Roswell, New Mexico, he spent his childhood exploring his mother’s garden, a place where his appreciation for the wonders of the outdoors was born and nurtured. Over the years, this matured and developed into an environmental awareness that led him to follow the ecological concept of Seven Generation Sustainability, which urges the current generation to live in a way that benefits the seventh generation into the future – something he was conscious of in all aspects of designing the Barn and its property. It is also through this movement and way of living that he developed his strong sense of community and collaboration.
