Greene County Pick of the Week: Catskills Arts & Crafts Brick House for $209,000

I love brick homes like this Catskill village arts & crafts number because they just look so solid. In these  Snowtober, vaguely apocalyptic times, I feel a house that the big bad wolf couldn’t blow down would be a good investment.

The glassed-in front porch and green trim gives this house such curb-side appeal. The interior is roomy with some nice original woodwork though the overall look keeps things pretty simple. (The bathroom and kitchen could probably use some updating.) There’s an insulated studio space in the attic floor as well as a three-season screened porch. The house has been on and off the market at this price since July—and was acquired in 2006 for $189,000. It’s a true village home, which means you’re right off the Thruway,  and a very short walk to the Catskills Marina and the Hudson. You’d have both water sports and village life within easy reach, though this isn’t for country gentlemen wannabes. More stats plus map on the jump. 205 Main St Catskill, NY
