Catskills Farms’ Brand-New Kerhonkson Farmhouse (Pending)

  |  February 12, 2019

Farmhouse 52: $549K (under contract)

Still imbued with that new house smell, Farmhouse 52 in Kerhonkson, NY is Catskill Farms’ latest build and the last house in a 14-home project.

This Catskill Farms three-bedroom, completed in December 2018, is a Goldilocks home: Everything about it is just right, which is why with less than a month on the market, it already has an accepted offer.

Situated on 13 acres in Kerhonkson, NY, Farmhouse 52’s location boasts the best of all worlds. It is close to charming, rural hamlets, like Accord, New Paltz, and Stone Ridge; and larger Ulster County cities, like Kingston and Poughkeepsie. Minnewaska State Park Preserve and Mohonk Preserve are this property’s neighbors to the south, with the Big Indian Wilderness and the Catskill High Peaks to the north. Wherever you turn around on this property, you’re likely to see some spectacular Catskill Mountain scenery.

Just because it’s under contract doesn’t mean you can’t take a closer look. After all, like Catskill Farms’ other builds, Farmhouse 52 is a study in style, durability, and efficiency. (And don’t despair—the design/build firm constructs about 12 upstate houses a year.)

No “Old House” Worries Here 

Buying a brand-new Catskill Farms home means moving into a fully functioning and a comfortable living space, complete with energy-saving perks like enhanced insulation, high-efficiency furnace, and on-demand hot water.

But, Does it Look Good?

Catskill Farms uses elements of old-fashioned farmhouse design, partnered with stylish-yet-timeless contemporary features. Farmhouse 52’s 1,900-square-foot interior features an open-concept first floor with wood floors throughout, a stone fireplace in the living room, soaring ceilings, picture windows allowing in a flood of natural light, and a mod floating staircase leading to the lofted second floor. Meanwhile, barn-style doors and fixtures recall a vintage 19th-century farmhouse, minus the 200-year-old creaks.

The satisfyingly Minimalist kitchen has plenty of under-counter storage space and Silestone quartz countertops. A center island separates the kitchen from the living room and an ample dining space large enough to accommodate 14 diners around a table.

Furthermore, the home’s three full baths include top-of-the-line bath fixtures, along with custom floor and subway tiling.

Last but not least, the house comes with both covered front porch and screened-in porch for three-season outdoor lounging and entertaining. The screened porch is attached to a spacious back deck that overlooks a level yard ready for landscaping. Veggies? Flowers? Water features? The mind boggles at the possibilities.
