Retro Raised Ranch Just Outside of Saugerties Village, $325K

If you live in this 1970s Redwood Ranch, you’d be close to both the village of Saugerties, and scenic Palenville hamlet. 

Looking for a place just out of town? Want to be close – but not too close – to civilization? This week on Upstater, we’re featuring homes for sale a stone’s throw from some of our favorite villages and cities in the Hudson Valley and Catskills. Built in 1972, this four-bedroom raised Ranch is hidden away in woodsy West Saugerties, ten-minutes’ drive from the middle of Saugerties village. Should you head north, instead, you’ll find yourself cozy with Platte Clove, Kaaterskill Falls, and Palenville in Greene County. Whichever direction you choose, you cannot lose.

While the 1,800-square-foot is packed with groovy, vintage charm, it could use some updates here in there, like in the kitchen…

…while the wall paneling could be hiding more desirable walls.

Includes two full bathrooms, both of which need a more contemporary look…

…and, the wood floors are attractive, but an overabundance of linoleum needs to go.

Off the main floor are two sets of glass sliders that open onto a balcony that overlooks the big yard surrounded by old-growth trees.

There’s also a ground-level deck that needs refinishing or repainting. Still, you can live in this house while you fix it up and create your own retreat close to all but feeling very far away from it all.
