Take Your Pick of Four Fab Porches in this Catskill, NY Queen Anne, $459K

  |  July 10, 2018

Luxuriate on the front porch, side porch, enclosed sleeping porch, or upstairs balcony in this 1890s Catskill Victorian house…

This house is prime example of the American Queen Anne Victorian style popular from the late 1800s to the early 1900s (that’s fairly short-lived, as far as home styles go). It’s got all the hallmarks of a classic Queen Anne: Asymmetrical facade, overhanging eaves, turrets/towers, bay windows, second-floor balconies, and a big focus on porches.

The Victorian goodness continues on the inside of the 2,300-square-foot interior with ornate staircase, high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, wood floors, and spacious common areas on the ground floor.

The contemporary, remodeled kitchen includes granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. And, this room opens onto the back porch – the largest of the four porches – and that, in turn, overlooks a rear garden in the backyard.

Check out the bright and airy upstairs bedrooms!

The property sits in one of our favorite neighborhoods in the Hudson Valley: the East Side Historic District in the village of Catskill, Greene County. The district includes just about everything east of the Catskill Creek to the Hudson River, from Main Street businesses to stunning, historic residences. To the south lies Dutchmen’s Landing Park on the Hudson River, home to the Catskill Farmers Market.

Upstater Pro-Tip: If you’re ever in the neighborhood, take the walking trail on the northeast section of Dutchmen’s Landing and follow it through the woods, past the tiny chapel (keep your eyes peeled for it; it’s easy to miss), and into the residential neighborhood along Prospect Street and Liberty Street. Ogle the beautifully-maintained antique homes. Head east toward the Beattie-Powers Place house and take in the magnificent Hudson River views.
