Experienced in restoring nineteenth-century rural farmhouses? This Roxbury home could use your expertise.

Sorry, weekend warriors. Take a pass on this Five-Figure Friday property in the Catskills, because, according to the listing, it is in “challenging condition.” If that doesn’t scare you in the slightest, then take the plunge and keep reading.

Located in rural Delaware County, NY, the 13-acre property sits about nine miles north of Roxbury hamlet, birthplace of naturalist John Burroughs, and home to the Roxbury Arts Group, the Roxbury Motel, Roxbury General store, Kirkside Park, and Shephard Hills Golf Course. Surrounded by the beauty of the western Catskill Mountains, the c.1840 stucco farmhouse sits on Jump Brook and comes with an apple orchard.

It’s hard to tell exactly what kind of work this 1,500-square-foot, two-bedroom, single-bath home needs from the handful of photo in the listings, but at least we can glean glimpses of potential thanks to wood floors and some original-looking built-ins.
