Vly Creek House

This Vly Creek house might not be a big secret to those who live in Fleischmanns, NY, but it sure comes as a pleasant surprise to us. 

This week on Upstater, our journey through the real estate listings takes us to the Catskill Mountains and off the beaten track, in search of tucked-away gems. This c.1925 cottage perched on a ledge overlooking Vly Creek is one such gem, situated in the Delaware County village of Fleischmanns. Privacy-seekers, take note: The half-acre lot occupies the last spot on a dead-end road.

The first-floor living room/dining room/kitchen offers access to the exterior decks and patios through one set of sliders in the living room and another in the formal dining room.

Pantry-schmantry; who doesn’t need a sauna located directly off their dining room? After all, this is the Catskill Mountains. Winters can be brutal, so better safe than sorry.

The 1,291-square-foot interior includes three bedrooms plus two full baths and a half-bath, so you can keep it as an Airbnb as it is right now, or it can be a fabulous first-home with room for the kids.

In addition to the main house, there’s a three-season cottage/studio with electricity on the property, as well as a storage shed. New features include the dining deck, roof, hot water heater, insulation, and high-speed internet and cable. The hot tub is a recent addition, too. Coupled with the sauna and the soothing sounds of Vly Creek 24/7, it’s basically like living in a spa.
