This is the kind of property we here at Upstater HQ dream about on the reg. A simple, elegant 1850s farmhouse, 3 beds/3 baths, over 2000 sq. ft. on an acre of land with the emerald-green rolling meadows of the agrarian Catskill Mountains as your backyard. When we saw those two red vintage outbuildings, we almost starting packing our belongings. However, after a little digging into the listing on MLS, there’s no indication that those outbuildings actually come with this property. They seem to be situated down the road a piece, closer to the Downsville school, on a neighboring property. Okay, so a bit of a hiccup, but overall, we like this cut of this one’s gib. Includes an interior that’s clean and simple with lots of natural light and a few country touches here and there. We love its nooks and crannies, even if they don’t include those two darling red buildings.

The house sits right on NY-30, otherwise known as Catskill Scenic Route 30, at the very western tip of the Pepacton Reservoir in Delaware County.
