Fridays at 11, Brownstoner Upstate brings you a selection of properties within three hours north, and a little east or west, of New York City.
Last week, we looked at four properties in Greene County all under $200,000. In this week’s installment of Greene County Gold, we’re flipping it and starting from the more expensive end of the spectrum. The market is sparse when it comes to multimillion dollar properties, so you might have to wait until we spend a week in Putnam County for those. You just get more bang for your buck in Greene County, so even the pricier homes are relatively reasonable. Case in point: The house plus barn featured after the jump.
What a lovely property and two-fer deal. Not only do you get the big 3 bed contemporary, you also get a red barn set up as a studio space. Lot size is 5 acres located in the town of Ashland midway between Prattsville and Windham. Speaking of Ashland, we’ve been seeing a lot of good stuff on the market there lately. Anybody been? We haven’t yet, but we’re considering a road trip. Beds: 3. Baths: 1.5. Square Feet: 1,739. Lot Size: 5.3 acres. Est. Taxes: $4,914. Google Maps Distance from Brooklyn: 3 hours.
If living out in the middle of nowhere isn’t your style, here’s a beautifully-preserved Victorian located in the village of Athens, walking distance to amenities and the riverfront just a couple of blocks away. We could look at this house all day, it’s so easy on the eyes. We love the wrap-around screened in porch, the ornate original details, the wood floors, high ceilings, we could go on and on. Great house in a great village. Beds: 3. Baths: 2.5. Square Feet: 2,400. Lot Size: .11 acre. Est. Taxes: $5,230. Distance from Brooklyn: 2 hours, 30 mins.
Elka Park is a swanky private community, complete with clubhouse and pool, in the ski-loving town of Hunter, situated a bit south of the villages of Hunter and Tannersville. It’s also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This renovated old school house is right in the heart of it all located on two acres.

Speaking of ski-loving in Greene County, this chalet at Windham Mountain is prime real estate if you like to hit the slopes. In fact, you can seem them nearly every window on the main floor the house. While the picture of the exterior above is kind of meh, the interior photos tell a more attractive story. Like a giant cat, we could easily find ourselves curled up in the sun in front of the wall of glass when we’re not skiing. Beds: 4. Baths: 2.5. Square Feet: 2,296. Lot Size: .3 acre. Est. Taxes: $8,167. Distance from Brooklyn: 2 hours, 48 mins.
