Hearing the call of the agricultural life? Already farming and looking for a venture in the Catskills? Just a big fan of rambling old farmhouses with lots and lots of space around them, in general? Then direct your attention toward this 19th-century Colonial farmhouse with seven bedrooms (!) and old fashioned charm to spare.
The house needs works. How much is for you to hash out with the real estate agent, et al. However, we can see from the photos that a lot of its old-fashioned charm might be hiding behind wall paper, carpeting, and window treatments. The potential for beauty is apparent even with only two interior photos to go on. Includes 3193 square feet, two full baths, double-hung windows, and metal roof. The listing considers it in “Good” condition. Needs some exterior work, too.
What else do you get for your $309,900? Nearly 100 acres of land with pastures, forested areas, barns, and sweeping views of the Catskill Mountains. Located in northern Greene County, west side of the Hudson River, 45 minutes southwest of Albany. Attractions in the neighborhood include Zoom Flume Water Park, the Catskill Creek and many swimming holes, the Greenville Drive-In, and outdoor recreation in the Catskill Park. Just in case you’re eyeballing this place for B&B purposes…
