Renovate this Old Barn in the Catskills, $249K

1800s stone house

While you’re figuring out how to fix up the Dutch barn, live large in the 1800s stone house that comes with it.

This week on Upstater, we’re ringing in the New Year with a multitude of fixer-upper and renovation/remodel-ready homes in the Hudson Valley and Catskills. Our travels today have taken us to Kerhonkson in western Ulster County, NY, an idyllic Catskill Mountain hamlet situated along the Rondout Creek. It also happens to be a stop on the Trailways Bus line, which offers you transportation to Port Authority in NYC.

The property’s main house, originally built in 1801, needs no work at all, unless you feel the need to redesign the 2,610-square-foot, three-bedroom interior to suit your own desires. As for the inviting bluestone front porch, it needs no improvement…

…likewise, the kitchen sports a recent remodel with custom cabinetry, granite counter tops, under-cabinet lighting, and stainless steel appliances.

Over in the formal dining room, the stone fireplace has been upgraded with a wood stove, and there are wood floors throughout with knotty-cedar siding and exposed beams…

…and a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace in the living room.

Up on the second floor, the bedrooms are drenched in light and include exposed stone walls and hand-tooled support beams…

…and delightful touches like ornate stained-glass windows.

The Dutch barn itself is currently a mere shell, but it would make a smashing second residence (live in the barn, rent the house, or vice versa), guest house, special event space, or studio.
