Andes village is the place to go for this fancy Victorian storefront with a delightful second-floor apartment. 

Those looking for a place to live and open a business and be a part of a flourishing western Catskills community would do well to head to Andes, NY. Situated in southeast Delaware County, Andes is a walkable town known for popular destinations like the Andes Hotel, Two Old Tarts cafe, the Andes Rail Trail, antique stores, shops, galleries, and more…and 75 Main Street sits right in the midst of it all.

The first-floor store front has been a store called Paisley’s for the past three decades and it comes with its original, c.1873 cabinets, drawers, and countertops from when the space was an apothecary.

On the second floor of the 2,822-square-foot building is a four-bedroom apartment with period pocket doors, a cozy wood stove, wood floors, two covered porches, and huge windows to bring in the natural light. The apartment also comes with a remodeled bathroom and a third floor with bedrooms.

From the second-floor balcony you can see the picturesque village set against a hilly backdrop…

…and imagine what life was like back in the 19th century when horse-drawn carriages instead of automobiles lined Andes’ Main Street.

The .11-acre property also includes a dry basement and a partially-insulated two-story carriage barn overlooking a brook in the back of the lot. A Trailways bus that commutes to NYC pulls up right out front, making this location perfect for foot-traffic business.

75 Main Street is listed for $340K.
