Five-Figure Friday: Neversink Sustainable Cottage, $99,000

1 overlook dr neversink ny

This cottage in Neversink is a heck of a find: Hand-constructed, it’s touted as sustainable, green, and built with all non-toxic materials. It also includes a passive cooling system, a dry toilet, extra insulation, and two electrical systems, one that works on the grid and one that works on 12-volt DC. We like the rustic wood interior, which includes a wood stove, stone floors, and three bedrooms. The house is a decent size, too, at over a 1,000 square feet, all located on an acre-and-a-half of land near the northern tip of Lake Paradise in Sullivan County. Taxes are dirt-cheap. Ready to live off the grid? Or, at least, slightly off to the side of it?

Five Figure Friday Returns! Lakefront Cottage in Neversink, $85,000

prince road neversink ny

We’re forgoing our usual Friday foray into the finer side of real estate and instead looking at one of the many five-figure properties for sale in the town of Neversink. In fact, Sullivan County is rife with these great little one and two-bedroom wilderness get-aways, and most of them are in deep need of everything from a new coat of paint to a complete floor-to-ceiling rebuild. This one, however, seemingly needs nothing, except for some cabinetry in the kitchen. And boy-oh-boy, do we love those cobalt blue French doors against the clean white interior.

Oh, and did we mention it comes with lake rights to Lake Paradise in Neversink? Well it does. Not much of a lot size, though, a mere quarter acre.

(Or, if you want a much bigger place that needs all kinds of work but with a mortgage that costs less than your car insurance payment, there’s this place)

Spring is a time of renewal, and what better way to renew than with a massage, facial, and a yoga class, followed by a delicious, healthy meal? The New Age Health Spa in the Sullivan County town of Neversink can provide you with all of the above, plus lots of fitness classes of the non-yogic variety, body treatments, hot tub, and a pool. They even have a sweat lodge, just in case you need of serious, heavy-duty cleansing and detoxification (perhaps from all the wine you imbibed on those cold Catskills winter nights).

New Age also has outdoor activity programs for every season, including snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter, and bird-watching and hiking the spa’s 280-acre property during warmer seasons.

Country Cape in Neversink, $149,000

1417 aden road neversink ny

We haven’t pointed it out yet, but perhaps you’ve noticed Neversink’s incredibly low tax rate. Yesterday, for example, we posted a farmhouse on 88 acres with a yearly tax rate of around $5,000. That’s almost unheard of ’round these parts. And we think this cape would make an excellent choice for first-home buyers, not only because it’s a 1,400 square foot house for less than $150,000, but the taxes are less than $2,000 a year. Granted, the lot size is only 3/4 of an acre, but this looks like a good deal to us.
