Today’s view-centric home is in West Kill, and has stunning panoramas of the Catskills from the wraparound porch.
The house was built in 1990 and does need some updates. Still, it’s got three bedrooms and two baths in 1,728 square feet of interior space.
Walk through the front door, and make a choice: Bear right and head into this wood-floored living room, with a wood stove on a bluestone pad and a bow-windowed alcove…
…or head left-center into the dining room, which shares the same type of flooring. If we owned the place, we would just take out that separator wall between the rooms, even though it means relocating the living room’s wood stove.
The dining room flows into the kitchen, which has a thick wood breakfast bar/cooking island. That same thick wood comprises the cabinetry. It, along with the linoleum floor, could use some updating.
This butler’s pantry is right off the kitchen, with lots of storage cabinets, a long counter for prep space, and a door outside to the porch.
There’s a mudroom off the pantry, which is perfect for removing snow-covered outerwear and muddy boots.
It’s got this handy, raised tub for washing outdoor muck off of Fido after he romps around the property’s 12.5 acres.
This is one of two secondary bedrooms. It’s got a burgundy carpet that’s seen better days, but the walls look like they only need new paint.
This is the other secondary bedroom, with wood floors and two sets of bifold doors: One that opens to a closet, and another that conceals a laundry area.
This hall bath has a worn linoleum floor, a jetted tub, and a vanity that’s made to look like it was repurposed from a mirrored dresser.
The primary bedroom has a bay window and two large closets. It also only has a subfloor. Well, it leaves plenty of room for the new owner’s imagination.
The primary bathroom has vinyl tile; a cafe-height-shuttered window; and a glass-walled shower stall.
It’s also got a repurposed-dresser vanity.
There’s a full, unfinished walkout basement, too.
A fenced-in dog run is off the mudroom, and there’s a small barn/shed on the property for storage.
But these views alone will make this home sell fast, we’d bet. The house is about 10 minutes from West Kill Brewing and the Hunter Mountain Trailhead.
