And for Christmas Eve, we present to you our little gift (sorry we couldn’t find a bow): This affordable Catskills retro cottage surrounded accompanied by a nifty stone patio. Situated 15 minutes south of Roxbury village in the gated community of Roxbury Run , the 2 bath/1.5 bath chalet-style house features an open floor plan with vaulted ceilings, skylights, and a small sleeping loft + half-bath for guests.
This is a perfect property for spending the days outside, decamped to the wrap-around deck and stone patio for a cook-out. The new owners also have the option of joining the Roxbury Run Country Club, which will run you around $700/year for a Swim and Tennis membership (Grounds-Only costs about half). Not too steep for a country club, we reckon. But really, aside from the club’s heated pool, do you really need it? We think we could manage just fine hanging around this 1.5 acre plot of land with frequent trips into Roxbury to wander around (or rent a bike from Roxbury General Store), grab a bite to eat, or enjoy the scenery. We’re easy like that.
