A newer addition to this c.1869 Roxbury Italianate Victorian provides a sun-filled room in which to gather with friends and family. 

Or, you can gather yourself a cup of hot tea and sit here alone, soaking up the rays in the great room, perhaps in front of a roaring fire in the stone fireplace on a snowy winter’s days. This idyllic scene is brought to you by the western Catskill Mountains, right on Roxbury village’s Main Street in Delaware County.

According to the listing, the 151-year-old house has been well-kept and comes with updates like municipal water and septic, 150-amp electric service, oil/hot air heating system, combination metal and asphalt shingle roofing, vinyl replacement windows, wood flooring, solid wood doors, and electric hot water heater. For a home listed for less than $200k, that’s pretty good! Ah, but that’s just the kind of affordability we’ve come to expect from the real estate market in the western Catskills.

This house sits on a lot more than a quarter-acre in size, walking-distance to local businesses, parks, schools, the public library, and other village amenities. In other words, this is the perfect place to buy your first home in the Catskills.
