Brownstoner Upstate: Stylish in the Country

    by

    791 South Street, Highland: $299,000

    Exteriors with loads of curb appeal. Interiors that feel up-to-date yet comfortable and homey. That’s what we’re all about this week on Brownstoner Upstate. We are experiencing some house crushes on a renovated farmhouse in Highland, a more-bang-for-your-buck beauty in Athens, a charming retro cabin in Phoenicia, and the perfect contemporary ski getaway near Hunter Mountain. Enjoy…

    Sigh. We’re in love with everything about this renovated Highland farmhouse located on three acres of land because everything about this farmhouse is inviting. The living room is all windows, the kitchen is charming, and the wood floors are beautiful. Highland is in Ulster County less than 20 minutes from the Poughkeepsie Metro-North station. Beds: 3. Baths: 2. Square Feet: 2062. Lot Size: 3.3 acres. Est. Taxes: $5802.

    5238 Route 23C, Jewett: $199,000

    We looked at homes near the slopes last week, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look at one more this week. Here’s a lovely Contemporary located equidistant from both Hunter Mountain and Windham Mountain, about 10 minutes away from each. The house on an acre features an impressive stone fireplace in the living room and is tastefully designed throughout. Plus, it comes with a sauna, which is pretty much exactly what you need after a day on the mountain. Beds: 3. Baths: 2. Square Feet: 1326. Lot Size: 1 acres. Est. Taxes: $2563.
