A Ranch on the Bend of the Esopus for $689K

  |  November 17, 2022

Saugerties is a jewel in Ulster County, and today we’re visiting this home that’s on the bend of the Esopus Creek not far from Diamond Mills Tavern, which just happens to have a fine Restaurant Week menu.

The home is one-level living on a grand scale, encompassing 2,652 square feet inside. Pull up and park in the two-car garage, then mosey up the path to the wraparound deck.

You can ogle the creek amid the 161-acre Esopus Bend Nature Preserve, which a previous owner helped establish.

From the deck you enter this light-soaked living/dining area, with a wide expanse of hardwood flooring and sage paint tones. A wide bookcase separates the living area from the dining area.

A tall fireplace cozies up the living room.

Past the dining area is a large kitchen, with bamboo flooring, tiled walls and countertops, and sleek, stainless steel appliances.

A Dutch door leads outside.

Another dining room is on the other side of the kitchen. It, too, has a Dutch door leading outside.

Past the living room is a hall that leads to all the bedrooms and other rooms. First, you’ll pass this office, with bamboo flooring and a red-themed half-bath.

Then, you’ll reach a den, with carpeting that needs an update.

This bedroom is bright, with twin sconces supplementing a ceiling-fan light. You’ll walk through a short walk-in closet before reaching a modern full bath with a walk-in shower. It’s not pictured in the listing, but you can see it in the virtual tour here.

Next in line is this sunny bedroom with sliders out to the deck.

It’s got an ensuite bath with a tub/shower, bidet, and vanity with a pier cabinet.

This corner room has a bunk bed now but is big enough for a king instead.

The last bedroom is equally bright and spacious.

It’s got bifold doors concealing this laundry area.

At the end of the hall, you hit this sunroom that offers a jaw-dropping view of the Esopus and nature at its finest. There’s a door on this end that leads to the deck, and another at the other end that leads out to the woods.

Th house sits on just over an acre. Even with a price point that’s a bit, well, pricey, we don’t expect this to last long on the market.
