It’s not hard to see what makes it so popular. First of all, there’s its location, which is just a few miles outside of Athens village on the Hudson River. This pretty spot provides a privacy among forests and farmland while remaining convenient to Athens, Hudson city on the other side of the river, the Catskill Mountains, the Mid-Hudson Valley, the Berkshires, and the Capital District.

If the location hasn’t grabbed you, take a look at the 1,228-square-foot, c.1840s farmhouse. Its plank flooring nods to the home’s antique nature, as do the hand-tooled exposed beams…

…but, it’s open concept and access to the exterior make this cottage feel fresh and contemporary.

…and, in addition to two comfy bedrooms, there’s a full bath with a soaking tub and separate, walk-in shower.

But that’s not all: The property also comes with a refurbished shed, now a light-filled studio separate from the main house.

Finally, the detached, two-car garage could be another renovated space for a second studio or guest room.

Athens is 5 miles north of Catskill village and about 2.5 hours’ drive from NYC.
