Farm 4, Awesome Catskill Real Estate Find

Farmhouse 4 in North Branch NY, SuCo, was resold last week after 12+ years of ownership by Michael and Andy. Our sister company, Lazy Meadows Realty - represented the sellers, and we got an offer and final sales date within 60 days.

Farm 4 put Catskill Farms on map because it was just a really unique well-designed home that branched off from our 'reinvention of the farmhouse' of our previous 3. It's weird to say 'our previous 3' because it conjures up still fresh memories of how inexperienced and treacherous our existence was at the time (2004), and it also juxtaposes our current state where we are completing our 120th home, have expanded to 3 other counties, and can build 15 homes with the effort it used to build one.

Farm 4 was a one story, 3 bedroom home with big views the whole way over the wind turbines in Waymart PA 50 miles away. A farm with cows across the street and a just down the hill a small deli/convenience store where a middle eastern family worked 7 days a week, raised some boys in the attached house and sent them to first class colleges.

Farm 4 was a continued stab at home design creativity - yet still unvarnished and imprecise. We happened to be renovating an old farmhouse up the street 10 miles and we took product from there and installed in Farm 4, like the porch floor we used as wainscoting in the kitchen. It's a creative house, a large canvas for a new designer.
It sat in a meadow, instead of the woods. It was one story. It had high but not pointless ceiling heights. When I walked through it before we sold it, it was like a time capsule - and I marveled at how well the house held up, and how many materials and processes we used in 2004 that we still use today - a testament for a vision that has stood the test of time.
Michael and Andy left this home not without heart pangs and sweet and painful nostalgia - a testament of how the homes of Catskill Farms have changed lives, improved them, augmented them - for over 15 years now and counting.

Farm 4 made its way back into the Catskill real estate, but it did not last long on the market. This is an awesome piece of history for real estate in the Catskills and for us, at Catskill Farms.
