A Fully-Renovated House in a Delightful Delaware River Hamlet, $595K

  |  May 20, 2019

Walk to Narrowsburg, NY’s restaurants and shops – even the Delaware River! – from this renovated Dutch Colonial.

The first thing you should know about this house is that it’s old. We know; you’re raising a skeptical eyebrow over this assertion. But, it’s true! Hear us out.

Originally built at the turn-of-the-century, the property has ties to the hamlet’s very beginnings. The Stranahan family – one of Narrowsburg founding families – established the Stranahan General Store on Main Street in 1853, and they kept this Dutch Colonial in their family until it was purchased in 2016. The new owners fixed up the old beauty, giving it a fresh, modern turn.

On the first floor, the owners/renovators flipped the home’s original front entrance to the back, but they kept the front entrance and swapped the front door for French doors. That makes the new “front door” around the back offers more privacy and easier access to the driveway.

And, that’s just the tip of the remodeling iceberg. In addition to adding new flooring, baths with spa fixtures, and a host of other upgrades, the home’s kitchen is now equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, marbleized quartz counter tops, double ovens, and custom cabinetry.

The first floor also has one of the home’s four bedrooms and a full bath.

The other three bedrooms are on the second floor, complete with dry bar/credenza at the top of the landing, perfect for rental guests to grab their morning coffee or tea.

Now, let’s say you’re looking to buy an Airbnb property. This home is perfect for it, with room for eight guests. Furthermore, the .7-acre property is right in the center of the hamlet, making walking to shops, galleries, eateries, and wine shops one of its main attributes.

In fact, we’re going to be spending a lot of time walking around the walkable villages and hamlets of the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains. Looking to hit the streets on foot or bike from your front door? Stay with Upstater for Walk to Town Week, in which we’ll feature our favorites from the real estate listings. Stay tuned…
