Hot Market in the Snowy Catskills

It snowed yesterday. Quite a bit, actually. It’s early for such things. But it was lovely.

And now we enter the traditionally “slow” time of year in real estate.

If this is slow, imagine what a hot market will be like.

Here’s what I’ve been up to:

First, a great new/old farmhouse in ravishing Roxbury, with tons of land, views forever, AND a guest house is now for sale. That’s 635 Hall Rd. Look it up. What a spot!

Next up, two waterfront listings on pristine Oquaga Lake in Deposit. Where is that, you ask? South central NY. An easy trip on Rt 17 from the city, handy to PA. The first one is a house. It’s a nice house, and it’s got a dock and lots of room. It looks like something you could enjoy and also get some lovely rental income from.  That 491 Oquaga Lake Rd. Deposit.

And then there’s its neighbor, the Chestnut Inn. If you’ve been dreaming of becoming an innkeeper, opening a retreat center, a wedding venue, something along that line, and you’d love a commercial kitchen, extra houses for rental income, and a lake? Here you go. 505 Oquaga Lake Rd. Sanford Deposit.

Plus I’ve been showing a home that I sometimes find myself dreaming about…Honeysuckle Rose. Just down the road from the Deer Mountain Inn in Tannersville, it’s got secret gardens, a rock pool just waiting for restoration, and an entry that is beyond stunning. 912 Route 25. It is, as the song goes, “confection.” And someone’s going to fall in love. It’s just a matter of time.

That’s plenty, don’t you think? But there may be more on the way, from mountainside acreage perfect for a healing retreat to the most carefree home in Cooperstown.

We don’t stop dreaming just because winter’s coming. In fact, winter may be the best time to dream.
