Upstate New York is winning over those searching for an alternative getaway to the Hamptons, and many affordable turn-key homes on offer are luring young families and professionals.
Catskill Farms is a company known for their stunning traditional country farmhouses and cottages just 100 miles outside of the city in the picturesque Catskill mountain region – often for less than the cost of a NYC parking spot.
Their homes were recently featured in the NY Post.
Catskill Farm owner Chuck Petersheim told the NY Post they specialize in what he calls “new old” homes, using a template of five classic designers – cottage, farmhouse, barn, mini-cottage and mid-century ranch. They vary greatly in size and cost and are fully customizable. But the majority of his clients opt for something between a two-bedroom, 1,300-square-foot cottage and a three-bedroom, 1,800-square-foot farmhouse, selling in the $350,000 to $500,000 range.
He says virtually all of his clients are New York City residents building their first second homes upstate, mostly couples, but also many singles.
