Here’s a little Catskill country cottage with a fresh glow-up, tucked-away on a pretty plot of land betwixt Saugerties and Catskill villages. 

The fresh coat of interior paint, new laminate flooring, and straight-out-of-the-package fixtures might make you think that this two-bedroom house is just another quick house flip. However, what you’re actually seeing is a solid little country cottage with a decent-sized yard and a modest yearly tax bill ($2,500 in 2019), located between two vibrant Hudson Valley towns.

…that opens to a sunroom/heated porch that doubles as a third bedroom.

Both of the home’s two full baths have also gotten the new-fixture treatment, and, aside from the heated porch, there are two more actual bedrooms.

The lot is over a quarter-acre in size and gets lots of sun in case you need to flex your green thumb. From here, Saugerties village is 5 miles away, and Catskill village is around 7 miles. It also takes about 20 minutes to drive to Hudson, NY on the opposite side of the Hudson River.

Cementon hamlet is a small mostly-residential community that takes its name from the cement factories on river’s shores. Expect cargo trains to be running on the still-functioning tracks nearby.
