  |  February 8, 2021

Still trying to land your first home in the Catskills? This three-bedroom Napanoch farmhouse is on-the-market, but just barely.

Upstater is brought to you this week by the letters E, C, and S: As in, Ellenville, Cragsmoor, and (the lower) Shawangunk Ridge, all of which are situated where the western Catskills and the Shawangunk Ridge (affectionately referred to as the “‘Gunks” by locals) meet just north of Wurstboro in Sullivan County, NY. It’s a picturesque region, to be sure, about midway between the Catskills and the Hudson River, perfect for those who don’t have a ton of money to spend on a property and like the idea of a house in a country setting. Which brings us to this week’s first property…

…a sweet, 1,150-square-foot three-bedroom farmhouse in Napanoch hamlet, sitting on a half-acre residential lot. Built in the 1920s, the house has undergone a total renovation of its original features, as well as some key updates. Before you proceed further and find yourself crushing on this house, you should know that it’s under contract, so if you’re interested, make a back-up offer in case the sale doesn’t go through.

In addition to an exterior update, the living room includes refinished wood floors, new windows, new paint, ceiling fans, and light fixtures.

The kitchen got an upgrade, too, with granite counter tops and new appliances…

…and, along with three bedrooms, there are also two full baths, one of which has been remodeled to include hand-painted shower tiles.

Even the basement level – perfect as a family/media room – has been spruced up with laminate flooring and recessed lighting.

The house occupies an open lot on a quiet residential street, right across from an intriguing old cemetery with weathered and faded headstones dating back to the 1800s. From Napanoch hamlet, the village of Ellenville is about a five-minutes’ drive from here, with Kerhonkson and Accord nearby, too.
