From here, you’ll have Phoenicia’s food, beverage, retail, and arts within walking-distance, as well as hiking trails, hunting, fishing, swimming, kayaking, and winter recreation within a short drive’s distance.

The 2,622-square-foot interior of the main house is in pristine condition, with wood floors, original moldings and trim, pocket doors, and an entryway stained glass windows. There’s plenty of room to spread out or congregate, like in the large living room or formal dining room, adjacent to the upgraded kitchen with a center island and lots of counter space.

…and, on the very top floor are two more bedrooms, one of which could be a home office, craft room, or guest room.

Off the kitchen is a roomy, 600-square-foot deck overlooking the sun-dappled backyard. Across from that is a separate cottage, which has been used as a rental and could continue to be one, if you’re looking to make a bit of extra income. When the snow is here, have no fear: Both the house and cottage can be powered via two 200-amp generators. Got a business venture in mind? The property is also zoned commercial and comes with two garages, one of which is set up as a body shop.

The property is along the Esopus Creek, which runs through the center of town.
