This architect-designed midcentury cottage situated on over two acres of land is just minutes from both Saugerties village and Kingston, NY. 

Saugerties, NY is metamorphosing, in case you hadn’t yet heard about it in this month’s Chronogram. The Ulster County village – and, to a larger extent, the town of Saugerties, which extends from the eastern fringes of the Kaaterskill Wild Forest in the Catskills, west to just before Woodstock, east to the Hudson River, and south along the Esopus Creek – is buzz-worthy right now. If you’re considering buying a home, best not hesitate. This week on Upstater, we’re getting in on some of that sweet Saugerties action with our favorites from the real estate listings.


What better place to start than with a renovation? This south Saugerties cottage was built in the early 1960s, but a designer-driven re-do makes it hip and oh-so-easy on the eyes. Right away, we’re in love with the free-standing woodstove in the living room, a nod to its midcentury origin story.

In addition to cathedral ceilings, walls of windows, stylish fixtures, and wood floors, the 2,240-square-foot interior includes a kitchen that’s worthy of even the most hard-core, Chopped-obsessed home chef. Stock that kitchen with herbs and veggies from your own garden.


A floating staircase connects the lower level family room and guest suite with the second-floor living room, kitchen, two more bedrooms, and a second bath.


A wrap-around deck offers a peaceful outdoor space to spend along or with friends and family…

…or, move the party out onto the bluestone patio with outdoor pizza grill…


…and, when night falls, gather around the firepit under a wide-open sky full of stars. The property is located just a few miles south of Saugerties village and about a ten-minute drive from Kingston.
