Friday Real Estate Porn: Stone Ridge Bank House, $995,000

There were quite a few contenders for beautiful houses in Stone Ridge that fall into the luxury category. This $600,000 eyebrow colonial at 73 Osterhoudt Lane caught my eye, as did this $850,000 colonial at 451 Scarawan Road in Stone Ridge. One great thing about this area: many, many beautiful homes.

But 46 Whitelands Road in Stone Ridge took the cake. Four beds, three baths, six acres, renovated kitchen, screened-in porch, nice grounds and just so stately. Been on the market for over a year, and I’ve stayed right near there on occasion and it’s a gorgeous part of the Catskills.

Here’s the wrench: taxes are $13,580! A serious downside of this area. You want land, you’re gonna pay for it! Stats on the jump.

  1. LOVE this…I also love the guy in suspenders in the background of the “mirror” pick. So apropos…

  2. I love this place so much it makes my chest hurt. I’m a sucker for history, and 1785 sure counts. Plus that barn has incredible potential. Sigh.
