Bright-and-Shiny Country Victorian in Margaretville, NY, $239K

  |  February 6, 2019

It’s hard for us to resist this sweet-natured Margaretville Victorian house with a thrifty listing price.

This week on Upstater, we’ve been checking out the residential real estate market near the slopes, and, right now, there are around 100 single-family residential listings currently up-for-grabs within ten miles of Belleayre Mountain in any direction. And, that’s just Belleayre Mountain. Just over a half-hour from Belleayre is Hunter Mountain, and Windham Mountain is still under an hour from here. So, if you’re in the market for a winter house in the Catskills close to three mountains, now is a good time to be looking.

And, we’re happy to help. Here’s a four-bedroom Victorian dating back to around 1900, with a polished-up, 2,268-square-foot interior, situated under 20 minutes from Belleayre Mountain. Before we go inside, though, let’s just take a moment to appreciate the delightful gingerbread scroll work around the front porch…

…and this eye-catching window.

Okay, now we can go inside.

The refinished wood floors alone were enough to turn our heads, but the rest of the original details of this house are in fine shape, too, from the window trim to the moldings. Tasteful updates also come included, like the remodeled eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and the bathroom fixtures, like the jetted soaking tub in the first floor bath.

Spacious bedrooms on the second floor, complete with closet space and more gorgeous flooring…

…and, just past the kitchen double doors and back porch, a half-acre, sun-dappled yard with storage shed.

Halcottsville is a charming hamlet with a farmers market and mom-and-pop businesses located about 10 minutes from Margaretville village in eastern Delaware County. You’re next door neighbors with Belleayre Mountain, of course, as well as Big Indian Wilderness, Plattekill Mountain (even more skiing!!), Roxbury village, and the Catskill High Peaks. This location gets a big Gold Star from us.
