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.
When we say “Cheapo Edition,” we mean less than $2,000 a month, and in one case (see photo above), less than $1,000 a month. And they’re all houses located in Ulster County (here’s your GMAP), not a single apartment in someone else’s house to be found here. So go ahead and make all the noise you want. Invite your friends over for Amateur Drum Circle Night. Throw a Karaoke-o-Thon in your living room. Yodel in the shower, whatever floats your fancy. And do it all while saving yourself a ton of cash in the process.
Oooooh, the status on the listing says “Pending.” Still, you never know what crazy turns fate will take. Maybe you could be the one who ends up living in this secluded one-bedroom cottage in Bearsville, just outside the village of Woodstock. Although it’s a one-bedroom, the listing states that the new addition could be used as a second bedroom. It’s tiny, but it’s sweet, and the wrap-around deck nails it. Beds: 1. Baths: 2. Square Feet: 663. Lot Size: .25 acre.
Maybe you need a bit more room than 660 square feet. Maybe a lot more room, like the amount you might find in a 2,100-square-foot, three-bed, two-bath, circa-1930s farmhouse halfway between Woodstock and Saugerties. Maybe you also want over an acre of land, to boot, and this one has got it. Super high ceilings, a fireplace, and a snazzy kitchen inside; garden space and chicken coop outside. Landlord is willing to provide some furniture, if the renter desires. Beds: 3. Baths: 2. Square Feet: 2,186. Lot Size: 1.1 acres.
We love the unique look of this stone house in Accord, especially the row of windows where the walls meet the ceiling. It’s a nice, cozy interior that’s still plenty roomy at 1,700 square feet, and it includes a pool. It’s also on nearly 7 and a half acres, which means privacy, and lots of it. Accord is a quiet little hamlet in Central Ulster County with beautiful historic buildings, located about two hours, 11 minutes from Brooklyn. Beds: 3. Baths: 2. Square Feet: 1,780. Lot Size: 7.4 acres.
Perhaps this property doesn’t possess the character of the other rentals, but there’s a lot of space here. Particularly outside, since the house sits on 103 acres, which would be perfect if you’re considering Witness Protection. It’s also situated on a lake. For just south of $2,000, this seems like a great getaway for a mid-sized family to us. Plattekill is in southern Ulster, just north of the Orange County state line and a few miles from Newburgh. Beds: 3. Baths: 2. Square Feet: 1,920. Lot Size: 102.9 acres
