Five-Figure Friday: Livingston Manor Victorian, $90,000

16 church street livingston manor ny

This Victorian is eligible for FannieMae Homepath renovation mortgage to do some fixing up, but from what we can see in the photos, it doesn’t need much. Who know what state the kitchen and baths are in, though? Still, plenty to recommend it. Wood floors look good, and we love the stained glass. Decent size, nice neighborhood, walkable to Livingston Manor hamlet, reasonable taxes, and it’s at moderate to low risk of flooding from the Willowemoc Creek or the Little Beaver Kill, both of which pass through town.

RoTW: Thanksgiving at Red Mountain, $900

red mountain livingston manor ny

It’s not too late to find a rental upstate for Thanksgiving, if you’re looking for one. Our friends at Red Cottage Rentals have a nifty little category specifically for available holiday rentals, and Red Mountain, located in the Sullivan County hamlet of Livingston Manor, is one such getaway. Three days over Thanksgiving will run you $900 or four days for $1,100. The house sleeps four maximum, but it would also make a nice cozy retreat for two. Cook a feast in the kitchen, curl up by the fireplace, enjoy a (likely) snowy view over the treetops from the deck, and revel in the seclusion of it all. While holidays with the family can be wonderful, sometimes, it’s preferable to get away from it all. Don’t worry; you’ll still have cell service, and there’s WiFi. Dogs allowed.

Five-Figure Friday: Jeffersonville Cottage, $68,900

51 county road 164 jeffersonville ny

Affordable and quite presentable, this cottage is close to the village of Jeffersonville in Sullivan County. What’s the catch? In our minds, it’s the lot size. It’s small for a country abode, only a bit over a quarter-acre. Still, the house is a decent size for the price, we like the enclosed porch, and the setting is pretty. The interior needs some updating, but for less than $70,000, that’s hardly a deal-breaker. Potential downside: The owner can’t leave until May of 2014.

Livingston Manor Lake House, $299,000

874 shandelee road livingston manor ny

The listing calls this a Victorian, and while we certainly see shades of Victorian around the exterior, the interior (and the year it was built, 1920) peg this as decidedly Craftstman-like. We’re not design/architecture experts, though, so we’ll let you argue the semantics. However, what it does appear to be is a nicely-preserved home that’s fairly large (over 2,500 square feet and 6 beds) on 8+ acres of land that includes lake rights to Sand Pond. We wish we could see more of the property itself, but this place would make a great home base for a large family looking to enjoy the Catskills near the water but not far from civilization (Livingston Manor is about 4 miles away).
