Garrison Mid-Mod, $499,845

 58 winston lane garrison ny2

One of these days, we’re going to collect enough mid-century modern listings to do an entire week of them. Meanwhile, we’ll just have to be satisfied with posting them when we find one, like this one in Garrison, Putnam County. Garrison’s real estate prices are expensive across the board. It’s an upscale area that remains popular among those weekending north of the city, so prices reflect that. It’s also bucolic, with few paved roads and river views. So while a half-a-mill seems kind of steep for a 2 bed/2 bath Ranch, it’s typical for the area. But hey, at least it’s easy on the eyes. It’s deceptively spacious, has the mid-mod signature trademark of tons of windows, and it’s located on over 3 acres.

Hunter Victorian, $479,000

68 hill road hunter ny

Elka Park isn’t your typical private residential community. You won’t find ugly McMansions plopped down on clear cut land with a multitude of cul-de-sacs and very little space between properties. Quite the contrary at Elka Park. Located in Hunter, Elka Park is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places with 17 Victorian cottages built between 1890-96. The roads are unpaved. Some of the properties are located on nearly and acre or more. There are hiking trails and waterbodies. And, there’s this grand Victorian perched on a hillside overlooking the mountains. Inside, you’ll find all the details you’d expect from a 19th century Victorian: Bay windows, native stone fireplace, a parlor, double staircase, etc. There are 5 bedrooms on the second floor and 2 bedrooms on the third floor, but really, it’s all about that rounded balcony and the views for us. Also includes gardens and a rustic gazebo. Residents have access to the Park’s clubhouse, pool, and tennis courts during the summer months.

Catskill Contemporary, $399,500

386 cairo junction catskill ny

This little slice of Greene County heaven is located outside of the village of Catskill, in the town of Catskill. One reader pointed out that people often get confused about the distinction (sorry if we helped further that confusion) between the “town” and the “village”. Just so we’re clear: There’s the village of Catskill along the Hudson River which includes walkable Main Street, and then there’s the larger town of Catskill that includes such hamlets as Palenville and Leeds. With that said, this property is 7 miles west of the village. It comes with its own lake and 16 acres upon which to roam wild and free. And, according to the official listing page, tucked away at the bottom under “House Information”, it says “roof garden”. Could it be? We certainly hope so.
