Continuing our foray into Catskill, today we’re on New Street, a couple blocks from the Catskill Creek and a hop, skip, and a jump from Main Street.
This updated 1890 four-bedroom in Catskill has got tons of character within its 2,004 square feet.
It’s been nicely updated, with hardwood floors and a sleek staircase in the sage-toned entry. To the right is the family room.
A modern overhead light fixture is a dramatic touch in the otherwise traditional family room, which has a brick-lined fireplace and wood floors. Original trim surrounds the room on white-painted walls.
This bunk room is just off the family room. It has twin bunks and a desk. Exposed brick is a nice touch here.
The dining room also has an exposed-brick accent. A skylight offers light to supplement the modern fixture over the dining table.
The kitchen is off the dining room. It’s quite large, with a green-and-white center island with a sink. Pantry closets line one wall, while cabinets and appliances wrap around two other walls. A door from here leads outside, and a mudroom with another outside entrance is behind the kitchen.
A bathroom on the main floor has a stone-tile floor, white wainscoting, a stained-glass window, and a corner shower.
Upstairs is the primary suite. It’s got a gray laminate floor and off-white walls; a big window accentuates the high ceiling and lets the daylight pour in.
The ensuite bath is next to a double-sized closet. The bath has marble-design walls and a tub/shower.
This secondary bedroom has a pocket door and the same floor treatment. It looks like it has two closets.
The third bedroom has a plethora of windows and the same design features as the other bedrooms, including slick black hardware on the doors.
The two bedrooms share this hall bath that has a stone-tile floor, marble wall treatments, and a hickory vanity with a vessel sink.
The lower floor has this flexible space that’s being used as a TV/recreation room but is also perfect for a home gym or yoga space.
The laundry room is also down here.
You can see all three elevations from the backyard. There’s a long set of stairs leading to the main floor…
…and this awesome covered porch that has a peek of Catskills views. The house is on a postage-stamp lot, just barely over a tenth of an acre. But with Main Street so close (Kaaterskill Market for sustainable goods, or Mermaid Cafe for Macho Nachos or a poke bowl), you’ll spend less time tending your yard and more time exploring. It’s just 10 minutes to Hudson/Amtrak, 10 minutes to Saugerties, 30 minutes to Hunter/Windham ski resorts, and a two-hour drive from Manhattan, off the Thruway’s Exit 21.
