I think there’s something quite elegant about this gray lady in Cairo in Greene County. I love the deep-set porch, the mature plantings, the well-oiled woodwork and the sense of proportion. This 4+ bedroom home could use some updates, particularly in the tight-looking bathrooms, but overall, I’d say this is an understated, well-maintained class act.
Cairo is on the sleepy side, with a quiet Main Street, a few antique shops and plentiful mountain views. It’s relatively accessible compared to the other relatively inaccessible towns in Greene County, not far from the Saugerties thruway stop. This house is rather close to Route 23, a major highway, which is great for getting things quickly, but not so great if you want that off-the-beaten-track feel. All in all, though, Cairo is so undiscovered that I imagine you’d feel plenty country here
