Whatever You Do to this Roxbury Fixer-Upper, DO NOT Remove the Wallpaper…

  |  April 19, 2019

There’s much work to be done here in this c.1870s Roxbury village home, but some things are just too charming to change.

Situated dead-center in the Catskills village of Roxbury, this Victorian needs a lot of love and attention. Sections of the ceiling and roof will need replacing, and the presence of mold requires remediation, and then there are the cosmetic fixes like new paint, refinished floor, and de-carpeting. The mushroom print wallpaper in staircase, however? That’s gotta stay.

There are other details that are note-worthy within this 2,216-square-foot home, like the living room brick fireplace, hardwood floors, wood banister and staircase, exterior porch with milled columns, and moldings.


Get ready to take down some wood paneling and drop ceilings…

…and give the exterior a sparkling new paint job.

The listing states that the house has been unoccupied since 2018, and the electric and water are currently shut off. Sits directly across the street from the Roxbury General Store. A short drive will get you to local ski mountains, hiking trails, and all the gorgeous Catskill Mountain scenery you can handle.
