Catskills Cabin For Sale

A Unique Cottage / Cabin for Sale in The Catskills

At its most basic, home is a warm, dry place where inhabitants are protected from the elements. But it can also be a place where your dreams and creativity run free; a place for fun; a place where you can be one hundred percent yourself. In fact, that might be the New American Dream; owning a home that both feeds “you” and expresses “you”! That’s a pretty tall order.

Happily, for some lucky creative-type who has been searching for the place to live out the New American Dream in the Catskills, 2817 Route 10 in Ashland (located in Greene County) is being offered for sale! Don’t let the uninspired sounding address fool you, this is a deliciously different home.

At first glance it is obvious that

Kabinett and Kammer Andes NY

Kingston Design Showhouse Pt. 3

For years we've been following the Instagram channel of an antique shop in Andes - Kabinett and Kammer. They carry a particular vintage decor element that I'm obsessed with (I'll leave you guessing on that one), so I'm a big fan. I was so excited to hear that Sean Scherer the shopkeeper of Kabinett and Kammer was a member of The Kingston Design Connection and was going to take part in the Kingston Design Showhouse. He has a style that is wholly his own and I knew whatever he did would be layered and unique. Seeing his room, I was not disappointed. I got the chance to chat with him about his shop, how he found Andes, and his involvement in the Kingston Design Showhouse a few days ago. His story is so like so many of

Hoping your Catskill Escape Will Have a Stream?

One of the most relaxing things you can do this time of year in the Catskills & Hudson Valley Region is to pack yourself a thermos of tea, find a rock by a stream, and watch beautifully colored leaves float down a stream. How lovely does that sound? Streams are equally entertaining in the winter, when their edges freeze up, providing endless opportunities for ice crunching; in summer, when the moving water can cool your feet and offer a chance to observe wildlife; and in spring when their power and size change daily.

Streams are calming, so calming that corporations build them into the lobbies of their headquarters, people incorporate them into their homes via small water fixtures, and the recorded

Maryline Damour Kingston Design Connection Design Showhouse

The Kingston Design Showhouse will open on October 5th! On a day when designers were loading in furniture and taking deliveries Maryline Damour, the founder of The Kingston Design Connection was good enough to give me a tour, and talk with me about why she and the other members of The Kingston Design Connection launched this project. 

A Tour of 139 Downs Street - The Kingston Design Showhouse

Me:                  Maryline, thanks so much for taking the time out to talk to me. I can tell it's a really busy day here, so let's just launch in. Where should we start? Should we start with why you embarked on this project in the first place before you give me the tour?

Maryline:         Of course! The goal of Kingston Design Connection is to connect

Fred is a little shop in High Falls. Perfectly curated, at once comfortable and aspirational, it's been a favorite of mine for years. I was so glad to hear that owners Charles Farruggio and Michael Van Nort were going to be part of The Kingston Design Connections' Kingston Design Showhouse. It gave me the perfect excuse to interview them and pay a visit to the shop! We sat together on some beautifully upholstered slipper chairs and had a chat.

Me:                  I want to start with a couple of questions about the shop, which I just love. Why Fred? I've always wondered.

Michael:           Usually people think it's one of our names. People will walk in say, "Are you Fred?" But I'll let you answer that question. Why Fred...

Something really exciting is happening in Midtown Kingston - The Kingston Design Connection's Design Showhouse is nearly finished!

What's the Kingston Design Showhouse?

In the early spring I had the pleasure of meeting Maryline Damour of design/build firm Damour Drake, the founder of Kingston Design Connection. Maryline is developing a Kingston Design Connection, in her words, " connect Hudson Valley designers to each other; to potential clients; and to the growing Kingston design scene." Designers and artisans who become involved are connecting with one another, and with all of us, through several different venues. First they've developed the Kingston Design Directory which will serve as a resource. It's a curated list of Kingston area

Catskills and Hudson Valley Real Estate - A Tour Via Fireplace

Fall has arrived and it's just about time for our first indoor fires of the year. Sometimes a client's search for a home in the Catskills and Hudson Valley revolves entirely around a single feature; the fireplace. It's that important! A fireplace in the right place, in the right style, and of the right size is integral to many people's vision of "home". So, in honor of the crisp air I've clicked and sorted and pulled together a pile of properties with fireplaces to suit every taste and budget. Just imagine spending an afternoon in front of each one of these.

P.S. most of these homes have a lot of other great features as well.

Clockwise from upper left:

So. Much. Cool.

Take a look at the outside of 808 Mill Road in Rhinebeck. Does your inner voice say, “Hunh…that house is cool,”? You’re not alone! That seems to be the most common reaction to this two bedroom two bathroom modern cotemporary hidden away on one of Rhinebeck’s most desirable roads.

808 Mill Road’s striking look is achieved via huge windows accented by white trim on a background of honey colored natural wood siding. The simplicity of this combination warms up the classic contemporary lines and angles that make up this home’s architecture. The finishing touch is a wrap-around deck that softens the lines a bit, making the home feel accessible (both literally and figuratively as it provides access to the front door), and affords an

Historic Stone Homes For Sale in The Hudson Valley

Hudson Valley Historic Homes For Sale 

The historic home shopper is a special breed. Buyers of historic homes are often willing to put aside the perceived minor inconveniences of buying a home that’s been on this planet longer than they have, in exchange for a look or a feeling they can’t get from newer construction. Sometimes it’s the romance evoked by passing through hand-planed doors with antique knobs as they go through their day. Sometimes it’s cooking in a wide-open country kitchen where generations have kneaded their bread and plucked their chickens. Sometimes, it’s the opposite of what new construction enthusiasts would imagine, it’s the peace of mind that comes with knowing that a structure from the early 1800’s is still square, and solid,
