As much as we hate to bid farewell to summer, there’s a lot to look forward to in the upcoming autumn (which begins Thursday)—most notably, the wondrous views of burnished foliage that visitors travel miles to see.
This week, we’re indulging our love of a great view with a collection of homes on the market that just happen to have astounding mountain views. This c.1900 farmhouse in Columbia County’s Germantown is one example: It’s got 1,408 square feet, three bedrooms, one and a half baths, and has been completely renovated.
Oh, and it just happens to have views of the Catskill Mountains. How is it that such gorgeous views can give you life, while simultaneously taking your breath away?
The front door opens into a foyer, off of which is this 14’11″x15’3″ living room that has hardwood floors and the same neutral cream walls and white trim as the foyer. It’s also got a patterned ceiling that looks like painted tin, along with recessed lighting.
This angle shows you the stark and solid black center-hall staircase. At the back end of the living room are a pair of pocket doors.
They open to a 10’11″x13’9″ dining room that’s just as bright as the living room, thanks to the neutral wall colors and big windows.
Off the dining room is an 18’2″x15’10” kitchen, with the stove, microwave, dishwasher, and sink tucked into an alcove between a tall built-in pantry and a sunny breakfast room.
Opposite that workspace are more cabinets, some counter prep space with a window, and the fridge.
There’s a half-bath on the main floor, too, with a petite sink and black-and-white floor tile.
Upstairs are three bedrooms: The primary bedroom takes advantage of those mountain views, and has a curved ceiling and hardwood floors.
This secondary bedroom has hardwood floors, twin windows, and a cute shelf.
The third bedroom also has hardwood floors and big windows, but—like the second bedroom—is tucked behind the primary, so it lacks mountain views but has woodsy ones.
All three bedrooms share this full bath, which has black-and-white checkerboard floor tile, white subway tile surrounding the tub/shower, and a marble-topped single vanity.
The back deck rambles down to the backyard, which has a nice mix of lawn and mature trees. The house sits on one acre, and it’s only about 15 minutes to hip Warren Street in Hudson, and 20 minutes to the New York State Thruway.
