Here’s an Arkville Victorian farmhouse – situated on an acre of land in the western Catskill Mountains – that will make your house dreams a reality.
Boasting renovations in all the right places, this 1,872-square-foot home offers plenty of glimpses into its 1890s roots, like its original rocking chair front porch that faces the babbling Dry Book across the road…
…as well as the glass front door, staircase, and hardwood floors…
…but, in the kitchen, things are considerably more up-to-date stainless steel appliances, ample cabinetry, butcher block counter tops, and room enough for a small breakfast table.
Double-paned windows bring the light into the common areas, like the living room (wood stove included) and the dining room…
…and, upstairs, we catch a peek at the home’s antique wallpaper. We suppose you could cover it up, but we kind of like the look and texture of it.
The interior includes two large bedrooms, but if you need a third bedroom, guest room, office, or studio, the huge walk-up attic is awaiting your creative vision.
We love the built-in storage in the master bedroom. So charming!
The second-floor bathroom still has an old-fashioned claw-foot bathtub…
…and, speaking of durability, the backyard sports an attractive flagstone patio perfect for spending time surrounded by the beauty of this property. The one-acre lot also comes with a large storage shed.
Arkville, NY is a hamlet situated in eastern Delaware County less than two miles from Margaretville village. In Arkville, you’ll find eateries, shops, the post office, the local tackle shop (this is fishing country, after all), a distillery, and, up the road a piece, the Catskill Recreation Center where you can swim and work out. During the winter, head to Belleayre Mountain for skiing and snowboarding, just nine miles away.
