Catskill Cottage on Five Miles Wood Road for $169,000

This little cottage in the town of Catskill is a good example of how a thoughtful renovation can make an unremarkable property into something much more appealing. Thanks to a lot of windows and a judicious use of white on white, this standard issue and rather small ’70s ranch looks bright and airy. As an Italophile, I like the terracotta floors—so underused in these parts, though maybe a bit chilly for Upstate winters. (Perhaps the next owners can invest in a bear rug? White, of course.)

“Catskill” here denotes both the region and the town, but note that this isn’t in the village nor within walking distance of it. The house is, however, on desirable Five Miles Road, one of prettiest country roads in Catskill, and the property comes with an acre of land. It’s also close-ish the Exit 21 on the NYS-thruway, making this relatively convenient for a Greene County property.
