Does the thought of a big renovation project fill you with hope instead of fear? Then sink your teeth into this Foursquare home in Catskill village.

The listing makes no bones about the fact that this 1,344-square-foot, c.1910 house would fare best in the hands of a professional as opposed to a weekend warrior. Most of its features are antique and in need of restoration, from the hardwood floors to the roof, so expend to spend some money, too. That said, it’s hard to deny the home’s appeal, with a big, bright first floor that includes a large kitchen, formal dining room, and a full bath.

…and spread out onto the yard that’s over a quarter-acre in size. Catskill village businesses are just a short stroll from here, as is the Catskill Creek and Hudson River waterfront.
