Something about this Roscoe home makes us think of the times when children traded Mickey Mantle baseball cards for Willie Mays. They played double dutch in the front yard while their Golden Retriever chased his tail in the shade of the trees. They’d eat peanut butter and jelly on Wonder Bread for lunch as they sat in front of the television watching Howdy Doody. Okay, the hypothetical is getting away from us but do you see what we’re getting at? This home is so classic, and while it was built in the early 1900’s it just reminds us of a 50’s style, All-American home.
Although the outside has us reminiscing, the inside is completely renovated. We can’t stop drooling over the butcher block countertops in the kitchen and the to-die-for island/wine rack combo. Just picture slicing up some tomatoes on that counter or the amount of canned goods you could fit in the floor to ceiling cabinets. Maybe these aren’t the types of things that get you going but you must admit that this kitchen is really something.
The rest of the house measures up. Just like many other homes we’ve written about, this renovated home has new installments but so much old-school class. (Similar to last week’s home with both old and new elements!) The alternating-stained hardwood floorboards in the living room are so unique and the dark stained wood paneled wall exudes character.
This 5 bed, 2 bath home is not only full of personality, but it’s centrally located in Roscoe, a Catskill town where there’s so much to do. It’s only a few steps to the center of town where there is plenty of shopping and restaurants, home of the Best Diner in New York and The Prohibition Distillery. This home is also just a short walk to the river where you can swim or do some fly fishing. Roscoe was voted the Ultimate Fishing Town, after all.
