Situate Yourself Streamside in the Catskill Mountains, $79K

This Greene County streamside house is going for a song, so grab it before it’s going, going, gone…

Happy Five-Figure Fridays, Upstater friends! On this week’s edition, this four-bedroom house located about 11 miles west of Hunter Mountain looks quite promising. With 1,420 square feet to work with, there’s enough room for the whole fam.

We also appreciate the fact that the listing states right up front that, while this property is on a creek, the creek did not flood during the 2011 Irene storms. Good news for those who don’t feel like watching their home and belongings destroyed by flood waters! Hurrah!

It’s a cute house for a rock-bottom price, but it could use some updating. Bathed in a riot of knotty pine siding, the first floor includes a wood stove, eat-in kitchen, and carpeted floors. The master bedroom comes with an in-room hot tub, and the second full bath has a clawfoot tub.

Some of the listing photos show that it need some repair…

…but it’s a sweet spot nestled right along the rocky shoreline of the West Kill Creek, which provides a rushing water soundtrack to the .45-acre property. Looking for a second home or primary residence in a rural setting, close to skiing, snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, fishing, and hunting (not to mention antiquing, eating good food, and basking in the charm of the Catskill Mountains)? Just follow the creek…
