…and we are not exaggerating. In fact, it’s not unusual to find a fancy manse in the region at a reasonable price, but this particular Catskill Mountain inn for sale offers a huge bang for its buck. At a list price of $569K, that amounts to around $109/square foot for this spacious and gracious piece of Catskills history.
Currently home to the Inn at Hill Crest Manor, the 5200+ square foot Victorian was built near the turn-of-the-century and is situated on 8.2 acres of land in the Greene County town of Cairo. The inn’s environs include a stream, pond, lush greenery, and gardens. The view of the interior is nice, too, with formal dining room, library/living room with gas fireplace and coffered ceiling, grand parlor, billiard room, and four-season porch with pellet stove. Take the grand staircase to the second floor to six bedrooms, each with en suite baths, including a master suite with its own office, kitchen, bath, private entrance, and terrace. Finally, the third floor features a “Tower Room” with 360-degree panoramic views.
Since this has been operating as an inn, the kitchen is ready for huge meals with double stainless steel ovens with range/grill, stainless steel fridge, embossed tin backsplash, and farmhouse basin sink. The dining room is adjacent to the billiard room (get ready to play Clue IRL!), and if that’s enough of a party atmosphere for you, move it out to the deck with 8-person hot tub.
