Cottage 5 -- For Sale!

Cottage 5 is another attempt by Catskill Farms to enable more people to buy that get-away home. 1 bedroom, fireplace, wide plank floors, 2 acres, vaulted ceilings, and a full basement to build-out when the wallet allows. Did I mention the brook running through the property? And the price is less than $200k?

My first home in Sullivan County was a 600 sf shack in the woods, and we lived there for 4 years as I built Catskill Farms. Plenty of space, even at Thanksgiving when everyone brought their kids and dogs. I was very tempted to call this mini-cottage series "The Shack Series", but wasn't sure if prospective homeowners would appreciate it.

I believe the McMansion/Hummer era is coming to an end - and reasonable, intimate spaces will be in vogue for many years to come.
