Stir up a pitcher of julip and bask in the Catskill Creek views, brought to you by this classy c.1785 Catskill Colonial home.
This week on Upstater, we’ve been featuring our favorite listings with wrap-around porches. Today, however, we’re taking a slight detour into the land of verandas, and you’ll be glad we did when you see the side veranda on this fabulous 3,834-square-foot house in the village of Catskill, NY.
With peaceful views of the Catskill Creek beyond the backyard, this side veranda is where we would happily wile away the summer afternoons doing next-to-nothing.
Inside, its eighteenth-century details are on full display, including moldings, archways, wood floors, French doors, and three working fireplaces…
…including the original cooking fireplace in the kitchen. Thankfully, it’s mostly for aesthetic purposes. Feel free to cook on the stove and oven provided.
Some of the rooms even include hand-painted friezes…
…and the original sweeping staircase has been well-preserved and leads to the upper-level bedrooms…
…like this sunny-yellow room, one of the home’s six bedrooms, four of which are on the second floor. This floor also includes a stately sitting room/office.
The quarter-acre lot sits on the east side of the Catskill Creek, next to the Catskill Marina, surrounded by other grand, historic homes in excellent condition. Catskill restaurants and shops are just a short jaunt away, as is the west side of the Hudson River.
