This Cragsmoor property was once a boarding house and, with a renovation, could be an inspiring place to make art.
The hamlet of Cragsmoor in western Ulster County, NY has a history of attracting artsy types since back in the 19th century. Its sweeping views of the surrounding Catskills offer more than enough inspiration, and this c.1890s former boarding house could be just the place for you to do the same.
It does, however, need some restoration work.
It’s safe to say that the exterior looks a bit shabbier than the 3,500-square-foot interior, which is still holding onto original details like arched entries, wood floors, moldings, trim, fireplace, the transom front door, wainscoting, fixtures…even an antique brass service elevator!
Flooded with light, this house provides ample space for a studio and workshop, and, if the numbers on the doors are any accurate indication, there are at least eight potential bedrooms here.
Situated on four acres of land in Cragsmoor hamlet, which is more of an historic district and community of close-knit neighbors who enjoy the area’s natural beauty with a dash of seclusion. Make sure you have really good snow tires.
Ellenville is five miles down the road, and New Paltz village is about a half-hour’s drive away, just in case you need a dose of civilization.
