Spend your summers 1895-style in this Wurtsboro Victorian, situated in a Catskills lake community less than two hours from NYC. 

Here’s something you don’t see everyday in 2021: It’s a five-bedroom seasonal Victorian that comes with all of the furnishings contained therein. We don’t know who needs an historically-significant summer cottage (it’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places), but if that’s you, this one is an absolute beaut.

Extensively-renovated, the 2,642-square-foot interior offers both antique character and modern amenities. The breezy living room comes with a field stone fireplace, plank floors, and period wall and ceiling wainscoting…

…while the kitchen is equipped with stainless steel, custom cabinetry (and plenty of it!), and new light fixtures.

There’s room in the kitchen to eat in, but for larger gatherings, move things to the dining area opposite the living room.

Five bedrooms mean room for company, and all of the rooms are kept vintage with period-style wainscoting, bay windows, and furnishings.

There are two full baths, one upstairs and one downstairs…

…one of which has a clawfoot tub, while the other comes with an over-sized shower with rainfall showerhead. Both feature custom tiling and fixtures. While the house has no insulation and will need to be shut down by plumber at the end of the season, the current owners installed baseboard heating to extend the amount of time the house can be used.

Out back, the screened-in porch overlooks the big yard nearly three-quarters of an acre in size. Keep the interior tidy by utilizing the outdoor shower after spending the day frolicking outdoors…

…perhaps at Masten Lake, since this property comes with lake rights. From here, you can hop on Route 17, which spans Sullivan County, NY, and take all kinds of day trips to places like Storm King Art Center, Livingston Manor hamlet, Minnewaska State Park, and Bear Mountain State Park…if you can manage to tear yourself away this stunning property, that is.
