We’re rounding out our tour of big lots this week with a lovely log home on 17+ acres in Catskill.
The three-bed, one-bath Cape-Cod-style house was built in 1984. The listing doesn’t include square footage, but the house is roomy.
It’s got some fabulous rustic touches, like this concrete-and-stone porch.
Inside is a woodworker’s dream, with tons of knotty pine wrapping the walls, floors, and ceilings. The great room is bright and airy, with sliders out to a long deck.
The open kitchen/living/dining area is huge, with a U-shaped cabinet setup and intricate rafters weaving their way throughout the room.
The main-level bedroom echoes the pine-and-wood-beam theme. The carpet needs to be replaced, but the woodwork is in good shape.
The sole bathroom is on the main level. The next owner might want to update the fixtures for a more cohesive look.
A hallway off the bedroom and bath leads to…
A big, three-season room that’s partially unfinished.
Head upstairs, admiring those rafters as you go.
Each of the two bedrooms upstairs have hardwood floors, and windows that offer treehouse-like views.
The windows are a mix of sash and casement styles. There doesn’t seem to be any overhead lighting, but wall-mounted sconces are a good idea if you like to read in bed.
The acreage includes two large sheds and this adorable treehouse, which has electric and its own satellite dish.
A three-quarter-mile-long, crushed-shale trail loop was carved out of the property for hiking, mountain biking, and ATV riding. This house is 10 minutes to the river town of Athens, 15 minutes to Catskill Creek, and about a half-hour to Hunter and Windham for skiing in the winter.
If this woodsy wonder speaks to you, find out more about 790 Green Lake Road, Catskill, from John Peterson with The Truss Group LLC. Act fast, because at this price point, it won’t be on the market for long.
