Sullivan County Farmhouse with Separate Studio Cottage, $459K

  |  November 19, 2020

While you bask in the old-fashioned charm exuding from this Catskills Dutch Colonial, your guests can enjoy the modernized cottage.

If you’ve been hankering for a bit of the French countryside, no need to travel (not like we can, anyway). Simply pack up your entire life and relocate it onto this bucolic 4.2-acre property situated close to the Delaware River and the NY/PA border. Well, maybe not your entire life. According to the listing, the contents of the 1,408-square-foot home come with the purchase. That’s a pretty tempting prospect if you’re considering embracing a prepper lifestyle: The ability to leave it all behind in a heartbeat, perhaps under cover of night, with nothing in tow but your toothbrushes and home-canned goods.
