This week on Upstater, we’re on the hunt for a residential real estate bargain, and that means we’re in Sullivan County. Kicking things off is this Callicoon clapboard farmhouse…
Last week, we made mention of the fact that Sullivan County’s neighboring areas reported higher median home prices this year over last year, according to this recent report. Sullivan, however, experienced no such uptick in median home prices, making it a solid choice if you’re looking for an affordable home in the Catskills.
Sullivan County is located west of the Hudson River, bordering Ulster and Delaware Counties to the north, Pennsylvania and the Delaware River to the west, and Orange County to the east. That makes it accessible to darn near everything, from the crests of the Catskills to the changing tides of the Hudson. And, NYC is about two hours away.
Sullivan County has seen its share of ups and downs with the rise and fall of the Borscht Belt resorts, economic hardships, and, these days, a renewed interest in its access to natural settings and cute, friendly towns. It’s also rife with private lake communities, so, if you do find a house you love among the Sullivan County listings, check the fine print to make sure it’s not a seasonal cottage (unless that’s exactly what you’re looking for, in which case, enjoy the selection!).
This well-kept c.1890s farmhouse is a year-round residence with three bedrooms, 1,843 square feet, and a two-acre lot situated in western Sullivan, less than 15 minutes east of the Delaware River. The setting is idyllic, and the property is priced affordably at $199K. Also includes a barn suitable for turning into a studio, workshop, or guest/rental accommodations.
If you like this Callicoon clapboard farmhouse, stay with us all this week as we feature Sullivan County real estate listed for under $200K. Better start packing now, because we think you’re going to love what you see.
