Farmhouse 39, Saugerties - SOLD

Great example of real estate in Ulster County around the $500k range.  This 1800 sq ft 3 bed, 2.5 bath home with a partially finished basement turned out just swell, I think everyone can agree.

Cottage 48 Goes to Contract, Ulster County Real Estate.

This awesome little cottage on 4 open acres near Stone Ridge NY just went into Contract.  It's a rare find these days in Ulster County Real Estate  -  great house near $400k.   We've owned this land since 2012, and then we started a spec house (house without pre-arranged owner), late summer, and now we are nearly finished and we got ourselves a deal.

Catskill Farms Awesome Video Series

Our video series of our Catskill homes located in Ulster County, Dutchess County and Sullivan County Real Estate.   https://vimeo.com/catskillfarms

SOLD - Ulster County Real Estate and Dutchess County Real Estate

This 1750 sq ft 3 bedroom 2.5 bath is located in Saugerties.  Amanda and Alex, the new owners, and I scouted a bunch of land, found a piece that worked in the golden triangle of Woodstock, Saugerties and Kingston, and then immediately got to work.  6 months later we deliver their home to them.   Nice way for everyone to start the new year.

This Ranch home in Milan NY in Dutchess County is a real beauty.  It has huge views into the Catskills.  I owned the land for 3 years before I started building - studying the land, studying the views, applying my decade+ of house/land pairings.  Had a lot of complexity with rock, long infrastructure runs, interfering neighbors.  But, by the grace of god, we got her done and sold her last week - the same day as Farm 39 - filling the coffers so we can go take some more risks somewhere else.

What makes this house sale extra special to us is the fact it was purchased by a family - a newly married son and wife and his parents.  The 'rents live in Albany, the kids in NYC, and this is half way in between.  Pretty special.

Functional and easy kitchen.

Guest bath.

Master bath.

Nearly Christmas

 Here's the home we are building in Livingston Manor, near the Beaverkill Valley.  Amazing spot of the Catskills.  Just starting the sheetrock phase.

Our spec house in Accord NY is coming along, with the countertop going in today.

My attorney, Bill Onofry, working hard on the behalf of our endless tasks.

Seems like we have an entire filing cabinet at Mr Onofry's office, which I thought was impressive.

We get some gifts at Christmas, and this box of steaks was high on the list this year.  From Mike at ProBuild.

We nearly made it another year.  That would 15 of them, remarkably enough.

Blogging Issue Conquered

Ever since Apple changed their photo storage system I've been struggling on this blog to upload them, and then came one clear-headed day and wallah, I figured it out.

Busy fall for sure.

Finishing up our Ranch in Milan NY near Red Hook, north of Rhinebeck.

Found this beach spot on some lake while scouting for land the other day.  Can hear my insurance agent cringing about that old school diving board and slide.

Our local Vet liaison preparing for Veterans Day in Eldred NY.  Good job Pete.

And who doesn't know this place?  Dog Mountain Lodge, where dogs stay while owners are away and play.

I happen to be in Miami Beach and the sun streaming into this bayside condo.

With 6 foundations going in the ground and 6 other houses under construction, one could say I should get my ass home.
