Go Full Catskills with an Off-Grid Yurt Colony for $99K

  |  July 12, 2019

Don’t just get away from it all. Get very far away from it all on a yurt colony situated on four private acres.

Modern life got you climbing the walls? Trade it in for two comfortable yurts, both with wood stoves, powered by  four 190-watt solar panels and a 2000-watt generator, plus a composting toilet, water catching system, and a propane heater. What more could you need?

The larger, 30-foot Pacific yurt includes a fridge, open skylight with ceiling exhaust fan, loft bedroom, bathroom, and pantry. This is no flimsy temporary camp site; these yurts are built to last and re-enforced with extra wind and snow supports.

If you crave creature comforts, you’ll need to put down some rugs, add some plantlife, install some stylish light fixtures, and otherwise spiff-up these abodes in any way you see fit.

The second yurt is a 20-foot Surley, also with a ceiling fan.

The four-acre property comes with a driveway that separates it from the road, along with a year-round stream and a creek just a short walk from the yurts. Take your hikes up Mount Marion, which abuts the property, or head into Saugerties village less than 3.5 miles away, or Woodstock village less than ten miles away.

Want more land? According to the listing, there’s an adjacent 21-acre plot for sale by a different owner. Buy them both, turn this colony into a next-level off-grid home, personal yoga retreat, stand-out rental property, or art studio.

Sold “as is,” cash preferred.
