Make Your First Home a Low-Maintenance One with this Catskill Ranch, $178,000

  |  June 27, 2017

A single-level Ranch built in the late 1970s might not be the sexiest style of home, but this particular single-level Ranch built in the late 1970s is affordable, comes with a full acre of land in a tucked-away location, and a durable stone exterior that makes it a practical choice for first-time homeownership.

Located about 10 minutes west of Catskill village in Greene County, the 1700 square foot home includes three bedrooms, hardwood floors, spacious living room with attached glass-enclosed room with a wood stove and a view of the private backyard. Double glass doors lead to the back deck, and tree cover provides some shady relief during the summer (downside: So many leaves in the fall). The full basement is set up as a workshop. Also includes a garage. Interesting feature: A front gate in the style of a castle, complete with sconces. Might not be our style, but we appreciate the uniqueness of it. Yearly taxes are $5198.

2044 Route 23B, Catskill (Keller Williams)
