Ulster County NY Real Estate

We started with Sullivan County Real Estate, and after 7 or 8 years we dipped our toe into Ulster County Real Estate, and have never really looked back.  If we build 16 homes a year, probably 6 are in Sullivan County, 8 are in Ulster County and then 1-3 in Dutchess County or even Columbia County.

Real estate in the Catskills is diverse and we spend a lot of time scouting and analyzing land for purchase - counter-intuitively, with all the trees and lack of density, it's still sort of hard to find good land that affordably accommodates a cute little (or not so little) home.

The Shack, Narrowsburg NY, in the News

Our friend Bridie who bought our littlest house we ever built - though we do have a few planned - got herself featured in a fun article in Curbed.  Note she swears she is wearing shorts, not a skirt.

It's a good little story about a good little house in a good little town.  If you could add up some way all the benefits these SuCo towns get from our marketing and building efforts, the results would probably be eye-popping.

Ranch 16 - Lake Front in Barryville NY- SOLD


This Lake Front Ranch in Barryville NY is one of our few homes directly in a lake - a deep water, mountain fed lake at that.

Since Jim and Doug helped us tweak this Ranch, it has become one of our favorites, or should I say, one of our clients favorites.



We build these big wide bleacher stairs facing the lake.



And the rest sort of speaks for itself.





















There you have it - another one dreamed up built and sold.

New Catskill Farms Video!

Posting from Paris France.

Here's a new video talking about Catskill Farms owner Charles Petersheim, his upstate journey and the beginnings of Catskill Farms.  History of Catskill Farms & its Founder Catskill Farms.  Just talking with the team today about what to do with this blog we've been keeping since 2007, before the transition to social media and the like.  We definitely don't do as much creative writing through this medium as we used to, and it's hard to say whether anyone cared anyways, but still, 10 years of writing the blog it's hard to just decide to put the pen down.  We shall see.

Eagle's Nest - FINITO



Our Modern Ranch in Narrowsburg, NY was completed last week.  It's on nearly 20 acres with world class views of the Delaware River and Pennsylvania mountains.


The shape reflects the bend in the river below.



The glass takes advantage of the views.


Screened porch off the kitchen.


Are words really necessary?














Another tax paying home owner moving into the hood, adding to the community in many ways including the economic multiplier of their discretionary spending.
