Could You Be the One to Fix Up this Victorian House in Phoenicia, NY?

  |  March 15, 2019

Take these old Victorian bones listed for $99,900 and transform them into the modern farmhouse of your dreams.

As we close out the week celebrating Modern Farmhouses of the Hudson Valley and Catskill (see more here, here, here, here, and here), we make a brief stop north of Phoenicia hamlet in Ulster County, NY for a home in serious need of TLC.

Built in 1900, the home’s 1,504-square-foot interior includes three bedrooms, two full baths, and a sturdy stone fireplace in the living room just begging for some restoration.



Looks like the original staircase is still in tact…

…but the kitchen needs the absolute works, but the adjacent dining room shows promise…

…and, look! Wood floors!

Looks like water damage will be on the to-do list. Burst pipes? Flood damage? It’s always a good idea to do your research on the local flood maps, especially since this home is situated between the Stony Clove Creek and a small stream, about 1.5 miles north of Phoenicia hamlet.


One of our favorite features of this fixer-upper is the second floor bay window, which could make a cozy reading nook in the master bedroom someday…

The house sits on three-quarters of an acre surrounded by the Catskill Mountains. For the uninitiated, Phoenicia is a sweet mountain hamlet with good local eateries (the Phoenicia Diner gets a lot of press these days), boutiques, shops, galleries, and theater/live performance, situated along the junction of Stony Clove and the Esopus Creek.
