Five-Bedroom Vintage House near the Best Trout Fishing in the Catskills, $249K

  |  March 13, 2018

Looking for a big house for a little money? This Catskills vintage home hits the mark… 

We found this listing among the Port Jervis real estate listings. However, it’s not located in southern Orange County. Instead, it’s about an hour north in the Sullivan County hamlet of Roscoe.

Avid anglers might be familiar with the place. After all, it’s home to arguably the best trout fishing in New York and possibly the whole country. The Beaver Kill and Willowemoc Creeks converge at the hamlet, and there are lakes and reservoirs around the area providing even more fishing opportunities. In other words, bring your fishing rod when you move into this affordable house.

Speaking of which, let’s not keep you in suspense any longer. We love this house! Built in 1902, the grand foursquare Craftsman includes 3,000 square feet, five bedrooms, three baths, and a location overlooking the Beaver Kill. Enjoy it from the rocking chair front porch.

Inside, the interior is bedecked in a wealth of Craftsman-quality woodwork in the form of windows/door frames, main three-story staircase paneling, and wood floors. The living room includes big windows and an adjoining sitting room with wood stove.

The spacious eat-in kitchen comes with built-ins and storage galore. And, it adjoins a formal dining room with bay windows…

…and still more bay windows in the master en suite bedroom.

Did we mention there are four more bedrooms?

All of this gorgeousness comes out to around $83 per square foot, and that’s a bargain just about anyone’s estimate. Check in with the agent and the local flood map regarding the Beaver Kill right outside your front door.
