Properties close to downtown Saugerties are pretty affordable — you’d have to work to get something over $300,000. But if you want some acreage, and to be closer to the Catskills, head west. (Properties in the hamlet of West Saugerties are also well-priced, but then you don’t get the land).
This lovely farmhouse has three acres, four beds, a nice open feel and a pool. I don’t get the sense of delicious mountain views, but the landscaping is pleasantly park-like. The lot abuts a busy-ish road, so its appeal depends somewhat on far back it sits. Nice beams on the ceiling, some nice additions like a wood stove and a hot tub. Definitely seems like a prime country house candidate. Assessed at $305,000 and hefty taxes based on that: $8,135. Stats and more photos on the jump.
