Kingston NY Investment Properties

There are some great multi-family investment properties available in the Kingston New York Area. 

Spring has finally arrived! You would be the odd man out if the pleasant breezes and sunshine weren’t serving as a wake-up call, reminding you of all the goals you let lie quietly under the crusty ice of the 2017-2018 winter. Did you mean to start a new project and just lack the motivation? Maybe you had financial goals that you just didn’t have the gumption to act on.

It’s a good time to dip your toe into the rental market. As of April 1st the number of residential properties for sale in the city of Kingston was down 17% over the same period in 2017. Tight inventory can translate into a great rental market. When potential

Emerge Gallery in Saugerties NY

The Hudson Valley is a hotbed of creativity. Artists have been driven north by skyrocketing rents in NYC. Many creatives land in Saugerties due to its affordable real estate, community art scene, and proximity to other popular towns such as Kingston, Woodstock, Hudson, and Catskill.

I sat down to talk to Robert Langdon of Emerge Gallery to discuss the Saugerties renaissance.

Tell me a little bit about your Gallery.

Emerge Gallery is a warm and welcoming environment that focuses on exhibiting and selling art by emerging artists in the Hudson Valley, NY Metro area and beyond.

Catskill NY Village Property For Sale

When was the last time you visited Catskill? If you haven’t been there in a while perhaps you missed the memo; the Village of Catskill is where it's at right now! It’s buzzing. Walk down the wide, well-maintained sidewalks in the middle of a workday and you’ll meet neighbors, business people taking a quick coffee break, people out getting important errands done, and the odd tourist shopping the galleries and home goods stores.

There was a time when Catskill’s business district, with its wide welcoming Main Street and beautiful architecture was peppered with some empty storefronts. Those days are decidedly in the past. Catskill’s Main

7 Woodstock Ridge For Sale - Summer Dreaming

Something funny happens in New York in February. Whilst residents are making good use of their winter toolkit: the windshield brush, the bucket of salt in the corner of the garage, the boots, the hair-wrecking hats, the ubiquitous puffy coat - whilst they struggle with the trappings of winter, New Yorkers, almost to the man, do something amazing; they ignore their icy reality and begin to dream of their summer. They plan out what they’re going to do, where they’re going to do it, and who they’ll do it with, just as soon as they can get into some shorts and a pair of sandals.

Catskills Log Home For Sale Bearsville

21-25 Rose Lane, Bearsville, NY 12498 - Catskills Log Home For Sale

“In the bleak mid-winter, frosty wind made moan…”

Frosty wind has certainly made moan this December and January. It’s been cold, it’s been bleak, and everyone in the Upstate region has been spending more time in our homes than we’re accustomed to. In this sort of weather, home becomes very important. The less stuffy your home is, the less likely you are to get a raging case of cabin fever. You want a home that’s warm and cheerful. A home that lifts your spirits and encourages you to look out the windows, to go outside, and not to burrow deeper into the vortex of your sofa. 21-25 Rose Lane in Bearsville in Ulster County NY is the perfect place to ride out the winter; feeling

A Contemporary Woodstock Home For Sale - Relax, Recharge, Play & Jólabókaflóð!

64 plochmann lane

Winter is here, the holidays are upon us. It’s Christmas Eve and if you’ve been on the internet lately you’ve probably seen the memes about the Icelandic tradition of Jólabókaflóð, the annual “Yule Book Flood”. Long story short - on Christmas Eve everyone in Iceland gets a book (or a few) to cozy up with. How delightful. Instead of maniacally wrapping last minute gifts, making sure the cookies you leave out for Santa will beat the pants off those your neighbor’s family is leaving, or dragging yourself out of the house to another holiday party, you’re expected to cuddle up with a blanket and enjoy some literature surrounded by your people. No matter what your holiday

Summer Camp Grows Up

If you went to summer camp, you have nostalgia for summer camp; it’s as simple as that. Every time you start to forget how much fun you had, how free you felt, you see a canoe atop a car, or you scroll through Netflix and catch “Wet Hot American Summer” and laugh until you cry. You want to go back! Now! 

Guess what? You can. 65 Hollow Road in Woodstock NY was once a boy’s camp. The mess hall is there, the bunk house is there, the pond, the pool, the WATER SLIDE. But it’s all been converted into a private paradise. The perfect place for you and your friends spend your weekends reliving your childhood.

In a hidden meadow on the outskirts of Woodstock New York, five buildings offer a variety of living spaces, creative spaces,

Woodstock's Real Estate Photographer Kicks off The Holiday Season in Woodstock NY

One of my favorite events in the yearly Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty calendar is the annual Halloween Parade that winds its way up and down the main thoroughfare in Woodstock. Here’s a selection of my favorite pictures from this year.

I always show up expecting to see mostly patient parents leading adorable kids on their yearly chocolate-fueled treasure hunt; but every year, no matter how many times I’m called on to take photographs of the parade, what I find is much more than that. 

It seems like the whole town empties out into the street, young and old dressed in every imaginable get-up. They greet each other

A Hudson Valley Victorian With Real Character

Kingston NY Real Estate For Sale

Who doesn’t love a character?

Who’s your favorite person to have dinner with? Someone who’s steadfast but quiet, or your quirky friend who throws you more curveballs than Noah Syndergaard? I already know the answer. What type of actors are guaranteed to have the longest careers? That’s right. Character actors. And what is the most often requested feature of a home? You guessed it. Character!

When you think about it, “character” is a somewhat vague thing to request when you’re talking about a home. There are so many kinds of character. When you say character, you might mean you want a giant vertical atrium that ascends through the center of the home. You might

Horseback Riding in The Hudson Valley

Hudson Valley Hunter Pace Candida Ellis

All my life I was completely obsessed with horses. When I was a child, growing up in England, all I wanted was a rocking horse. I never got one.

Stop. This is not going to be the whiny story of my sad inner child, fed only with hand-me-down toys. It is, in fact, a story of realized dreams.

When a rocking horse wasn’t forthcoming, I downgraded my expectations somewhat and asked for a hobby horse. You remember those; a stick with a stuffed animal horse head on the end? I never got one of those either.

Fortunately I have a Dad who loved to ride and found a way to combine his Daddy duties with his favorite pastime. I was often the only (very tiny) child on a wild adult ride, galloping behind on my small
