This Cragsmoor Craftsman dating back to the turn-of-the-century sits on 2.5 acres in a dreamy mountaintop community in Ulster County, NY.

If you’re trying to cozy up to the lower ‘Gunks, there’s hardly a better place to do it from than Cragsmoor, NY, a mountaintop hamlet with a population of around 450, perched on the Shawangunk Ridge just south of Ellenville. Trouble is, housing stock in Cragsmoor is rare, which means nobody is particularly anxious to leave the area anytime soon. That should tell you something about the community. One of the few houses on-the-market in Cragsmoor proper is this c.1900 Arts-and-Crafts house with three bedrooms.

The 1,650-square-foot interior includes original hardwood floors, a decorative (AKA, non-working) brick fireplace in the living room, exposed ceiling beams, and leaded glass windows. New features like a first-floor half-bath and updated fixtures in the second-floor full bath also accompany those antique originals.

The kitchen is functional, but home chefs may choose to update it into a more gourmet space but replacing counter tops, cabinetry, and appliances…

…while the upstairs bedrooms are good to go, with plenty of closet space in each…

…and, on the third floor is a full walk-up attic.

If you love to linger outdoors, you can do so on the front and side porches…

…or out in the big backyard. Love to hike? The property is just minutes from Sam’s Point at the Minneswaska State Park Preserve.
