Fulfill Your Ultimate Old House Fantasy by Living in this Catskills Train Depot, $695K

  |  February 27, 2019

Here’s a rarity among the listings: An original, c.1898 O&W railroad depot converted into a splashy, eclectic private residence.

We’ve been scouring the local real estate listings for stone and brick houses this week on Upstater, – like this one, this one, and this one – but we’re taking a slight detour to feature this converted train depot with a concrete stucco exterior. Technically, concrete consists of teeny-tiny stones. Close enough for us!

This house is something else, and we don’t use that expression lightly, given the sheer volume of real estate listings we see every day. Located in the Sullivan County town of Bloomingburg, the depot has been transformed into a Spanish-Colonial-inspired home, right down (or up?) to its Ludowici clay roof tiles.

Includes five bedrooms and 3,449 square feet of artsy details, like custom trim, ceiling medallions, decorative pillars, period English wallpaper, and fancified fixtures and built-ins.

Cook up a storm in the renovated kitchen with slate counter tops, Wolfe range, and cherry wood cabinetry.

The master bedroom comes with a private balcony and spa-like en suite

…plus two extra full baths to accommodate the other four bedrooms. According to the listing, one of the bedrooms comes with a secret passageway to the station master’s quarters. Color us intrigued!

Also included on the 3.8-acre lot is a stand-alone studio, partially-finished, with plumbing and heat.

Bloomingburg, NY is in southeastern Sullivan County, about 5 minutes east of Wurtsboro. NYC is 90 minutes by car via Route 17 and the Palisades.
