Onteora Park Estate for $499,000

I planned to write about this Onteora Park Estate before Irene hit. I haven’t been to visit since, but when I head Upstate tonight, I plan to take a drive through lovely, enviable Onteora to see how it fared.

This 1890 home is made of solid stuff: original wide plank floors, stone fireplaces, double-hung windows and even ornate door hinges. There are established perennial gardens throughout the 1.5 acre property, and 4 porches. I hope this pretty piece of history made it through the storm.

Year Built: 1890
Bedrooms: 4
Bath:2.5

Turn-of-the-Century Tannersville “Cottage” for Sale for $380,000

I love when spacious, elegant houses are called “cottages” to indicate their second home status. Viva old money understatement! This 5 bedroom, 3 bath Tannersville “cottage,” found in the elegant Onteora Park neck of the woods, hardly counts as roughing it, though it does offer plenty of rustic and period touches. Real wood paneling, a stone fireplace, two clawfoot tubs, built-in bookshelves and established gardens complete the package. Plus, much of furniture is available as part of the asking price.

The house is located Route 23C,  between the Mountain Top Arboretum and Main Street, Tannersville, a pretty stretch of road. It hit the market in June, and the price hasn’t budged, but while the area is very desirable, I think this could come down a bit. And make sure they stick to that furniture offer!

Stats and more pics on the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

Town of the Week: Tannersville

Pretty, pastel-colored Tannersville is one of the better-known villages in relatively little-known Greene County. Part of Hunter Township, Tannersville is just down the road (or more precisely, down route 23A) from Hunter Mountain and Hunter Village. If you’re driving up wooded, winding 23A  to get to Hunter from the city—a nice, scenic way to go—you’ll pass through Tannersville en route. Stop here for lunch, or dinner, or drinks. Because that’s the thing about Hunter village—other than the ski resort itself and its occasional summer concert or festival—there really isn’t much to do, or eat, in Hunter proper.

While not as bustling as Saugerties or Woodstock down the mountain, Tannersville does have more of destination feel than its neighbors.   Read the rest of this entry »
