As fall approaches, it might seem a little late in the game to make a bid on a Kaaterskill Creek seasonal cottage for sale. However, if you’re hoping to get into it by next spring, there’s no time like the present to plan ahead.
And, this cottage is a real doll. You’ll notice the screened-in porch right away, punctuated with darling hand-painted shutters. The 684-square foot interior is decidedly retro but wouldn’t take much to modernize it. In fact, the listing specifies that making it a year round cottage is a possibility. But how do you go about it? We suggest reading this 2008 article from the New York Times on the pursuit of winterizing a seasonal cottage in the Catskills. Yes, the article is old. Still holds up, though. Short version is, you’re going to need money to do it. However, since the cottage is listed for $99K, making it a year round cottage could be doable on a budget.
Meanwhile, the cottage includes two bedrooms, kitchen appliances, and double-hung windows. The property is over a half-acre in size and shielded from the road and neighbors by plenty of vegetation. The land itself is level and park-like, so plant away, gardening fools!
The property is located in the town of Catskill, Greene County, 5 minutes from Palenville and 15 minutes from Catskill village. The Kaaterskill Creek rambles just west of this property, and that leads to the Kaaterskill Falls outside of Hunter.
