Greene County Pick of the Week: Sal’s Mad Men Era Catskills Getaway in Coxsackie for $163,000

I probably wouldn’t have noticed this nondescript 1960s Coxsackie ranch if I hadn’t recently fallen in love with this great website RetroRenovation. I wouldn’t touch those (birch?) cabinets in the kitchen or that brick and brass fireplace. I even love the pajama striped wallpaper, and that screened-in porch looks perfect for afternoons spent sipping Tom Collins.

With nearly 3 acres, there is enough room for a bright aquamarine pool—-and looks like there’s already a pond. The property offers an outbuilding studio, too. So which Mad Men character would make this his weekend home? I’m saying Sal, giving the retro-cool, the relative privacy and that great address: Johnny Cake Lane!
