The location of this property, which we found while poking around our own Upstater real estate section, is in a Carmel sweet spot: Right on the tip of the little mitten-shaped piece of land that touches both Lake Gleneida and the West Branch Reservoir. That means that it’s water water everywhere, not to mention that it’s set back off of Route 301 at the end of a private driveway on just a smidge over an acre of land. The house dates from 1800 and has been renovated extensively.
At over 3,000 square feet, it’s a decent amount of house. But be aware of the hefty $12,900 tax burden. That sure can make all the difference. But given its enviable location (adorable hamlet of Carmel, close to the water, fairly private driveway), the taxes just might be well worth it.
