As we mentioned yesterday, a house need not be pricey for us to include it on our House Wish List. This 1920s Catskills Craftsman cottage with vintage charm to spare is more proof of the same

Perhaps it’s the holiday season, but we’re sensing a distinct “A Christmas Story” vibe from this house, like Ralphy might be in the upstairs bathroom deciphering an Ovaltine puzzle. Craftsman woodworking abounds in the door/window frames, built-ins, and staircase. Includes three bedrooms, large windows, and a new oil hot water heating system installed in 2013.

Some updates in the kitchen and bath and plaster repairs are needed, as well as carpeting removal. Otherwise, this house seems to be in pretty good condition. Sits on a quarter-acre of land in the Delaware County hamlet of Grand Gorge, less than 10 minutes north of Roxbury village. Winter sports abound nearby, with Plattekill Mountain, Belleayre, Windham, and Hunter Mountains will within a half-hour’s distance.
