SWEET UPSTATE COUNTRY GETAWAY. Affordable cozy cottage in the foothills of the Catskills offering up a nice pastural setting with pond and meadow views. On just under 4 acres, you get the best mix of woods and open land, where the home sits high and dry, elevated above the back yard, creating a very peaceful setting on a lightly traveled, quiet country back road. Back deck offers a place to rest or meditate and simply enjoy all that exists in nature. Plenty of room for children to play and plenty of natural light for gardening and other outdoor activities. A great place to entertain family and friends. Inside offers all sorts of great enhancements like updated kitchen and baths, flooring, paint, newer roof, windows, and siding, landscaping improvements, and much more. Fire up the wood stove this fall and heat the entire home very easily. This is that easy to maintain-come and go as you please type of home, great for full time or weekend use. Not too big, not too small, perfect fit for someone looking for low maintenance and no major projects or headaches. Located within striking distance to all the great things to do in Ulster County, you can visit places like Minnewaska State Park, the Shawangunk Valley wine trails and vineyards, Mohonk and Sam's Point Preserves, Litman Park's extensive mountain biking trails, or perhaps the Shadowland Theatre to take in a show. But why stop there? Venture north into the Catskills and enjoy tubing the Esopus Creek, hiking trails throughout the area, numerous area concerts, and other local festivals in the summer, as well as all the skiing you can handle with 3 different mountains to choose from. Nearby hot spots like High Falls, Hurley, Stone Ridge, and Rosendale offer some of the areas best walkable rail trails you can find in the Hudson Valley. There's no shortage of streams, creeks, and rivers here and with large amounts of state and other locally protected lands, the preservation of the area's beauty is quite evident. A home for all seasons. Excellent Air BnB potential here for sure! Add the pool and hot tub and you may want to move upstate for good! Hard to get all this for less than 300k these days. Owners are ready to pass the torch and have loved this home for years now. This is not an easy home to let go of for sure. Could be yours for the new year!
