We’re forgoing the fixer-upper of the week this Wednesday because we’ve developed a crush on New York towns along the Delaware River, especially Callicoon and Narrowsburg.
So when we saw this place — a Delaware River-front Arts+Crafts-style house, with three beds, two baths and 2,000 square feet — we thought we’d take a closer look. Not a lot of acreage, at .64 acres, but you’ve got miles and miles of river to stare at. It has some nice built-ins, great windows in the dining area, and a new roof. Sweet kitchen. Some of the fixtures are not our favorite style, but maybe they’re yours?
$399,000 is a fairly high price for property in this area — you’ll see a lot of stuff for less than $300,000, though not all of it tasteful or in move-in condition, or right along the water (cross the bridge into PA and your prices will get even lower). But Narrowsburg has tremendous curb appeal, a cafe, a grocery store and nice shops (one had a sale rack with $100 garments, which clues you into at least some of the tourist clientele). It’s definitely a lovely place to walk through and around in the summertime.
