Car-Free Upstate Update: Kingston Two-Story, $229,000

33 warren st kingston ny

Remember this nice Kingston home we posted about back in July 2013? We recently heard from the owners who told us that the house was taken off the market during the winter. Some pipes burst during those cold snaps, but since then, they’ve replaced the floors, kitchen cabinets, and light fixtures, and they’ve added a new high-efficiency natural gas furnace, as well as a few other upgrades. Their contractor is Brian Early, who was responsible for the interior design of Boitson’s and Elephant Wine Bar in Kingston. Anyway, the house is back on the market with all kinds of nice new photos on the listing, so have a look-see. It’s located about a half-mile from the Trailways bus station on Washington Avenue in uptown Kingston, and if you don’t feel like hoofing it, you can always call a cab to get you home.

RoTW: Boiceville Farmhouse, $150/night

boiceville farmhouse

We started off in search of $100 a night or less rentals around the Catskills, which we found plenty of. But many were of the smallish cabin variety (not all; just many), and we wondered what we could get for just a little more per night. Turns out, you can get a roomy 3 bed c.1840 farmhouse in Boiceville, Ulster County. What’s nice about this place is that it’s on 5 private acres, and it’s only a 2 minute walk from the bus stop at Bread Alone. It’s also close to the Esopus creek and some swimming holes. Boiceville is up near the northwestern corner of the Ashokan Reservoir, 10 minutes from Phoenicia, 20 minutes from Woodstock, and 25 minutes from Kingston. Oh, and the text under the photos came directly from the Airbnb.com listing.

Woodstock Hilltop Cottage, $285,000

6 mt guardian rd woodstock ny

New to the listings, this 3 bed/2 bath cottage in Woodstock has got some nice views of the treetops and beyond from big screened in porch. Inside, there’s an easy, open flow and a cheerful brightness that we find appealing. Cottage includes a separate studio with running water, so there’s guest house potential there. Or, don’t share and keep it as your studio. Nothing wrong with that. The cottage and studio are situated on 2.6 acres of land in the hamlet of Bearsville, about 10 minutes north of the village of Woodstock.

Five-Figure Friday: Kerhonkson Camping Cabin, $39,000

67 cherry lane kerhonkson ny

Even at such a low price, it still seems a little much for a 140-square foot one room off-grid cabin. Then again, it’s sitting pretty on 2.5 acres, so it’s fairly comparable to other lot/land listings with nothing on them in Kerhonkson. Alas, this is the only photo available, so you’ll just have to use your rich imagination to picture the inside. Located about 6.5 miles north of Kerhonkson, the cabin is certainly private and secluded. But if you’re looking for something in the five-figure range with a teensy bit more space, it seems you’re out of luck. There’s always this cute place for $125,000.
