By the looks of the gleaming wood floors and equally gleaming wainscoted ceilings, this 953 square feet northern Catskills cottage for sale is in fine condition. And, for the most part, it is! The bedrooms look to need a new coat of paint, but over all, we like this two-bedroom place complete with wood stove, sun room, dining room, and inviting open floor plan.
It’s also located on a .75-acre plot of land in northwestern Greene County near the Schoharie Creek and a few minutes from Prattsville hamlet, a plucky community that was hit hard by Hurricane Irene back in 2011 but rebuilt and has come back stronger than ever. Read more about that here on Upstater.
An additional note on the location: The address is right next door to a recycling and sanitation business, and that could impact an otherwise fairly idyllic part time/full time living situation. On the other hand, the property also abuts a DEC watershed and public land. As always, it’s worth exploring the area and neighborhood to reconnoiter and get a valuable reality check.
