Climax NY Real Estate
Climax New York is a small rural town in Greene County - there's not always a lot of real estate on offer at any given time in Climax, properties tend to stay in a family and it's (as we said) rural. But, when Climax properties are available they represent the opportunity to have access to popular Catskills and Hudson Valley towns like Windham, Catskill, Coxsackie and Hudson at a relatively affordable price. Let's explore Climax and its properties for sale!
To find Climax, you follow Route 81 from Coxsackie and take a right on County Route 26, then climb a steep hill to a sweet little cottage on the right, and if it’s spring there are dozens of dancing daffodils out front. Now you’re in the Coxsackie hamlet of Climax, and yes it is the type of town where navigational landmarks are farmhouses, cottages, and ancient maple trees. This is farmland but on the mountainside - with historic houses, barns, lush green countryside, orchards, fields. As you climb higher and higher on Route 26, you'll get to Willow Creek Farm - turn around. The view is heaven! You can see the entire Berkshires range, from north to south.
One resident, when asked about the view, said, “Yes, the Berkshires in that direction and the Catskills when you look the other way. We call it the top of the world!”

At the very bottom of that same hill is Coxsackie, so although Climax feels separated from the world, it’s not at all. Coxsackie has all the necessities. In the Coxsackie flats, Climax residents get groceries or gasoline, lunch and a coffee.
Coxsackie’s Reed Street Historic District is especially charming; that’s where the boat launch is, a Hudson riverfront park and some of the most wonderful old homes… plus Che Figata Bistro, where the menu changes every day. Coxsackie is also home to the Greene County Historical Society, Bronck House Museum, and the Vedder Research Library, all preserving the wealth of Greene County history and tradition.
When you’ve had your fill of village life and you’re going back up the mountain, you might pass a hand-printed sign, “goats chickens rabbits.” If you're looking for fresh veggies, you’ll want to try Boehm Farm, since 1903, a mainstay of Climax. During the growing season, you can get delicious cherries, plums, apples, peaches and pumpkins grown right there; they also have honey, maple syrup, donuts, pies and like that at the farm stand.
On the new side is Climax Cooperative Farm; using “minimum mechanical intervention,” they grow tomatoes, beets, kale, flowers and more. If you’re curious about another sign in Climax, Linnea's Handcraft, you’ll find it leads to Bitta Albright, who gives classes in ceramic painting, soap-making, baking, you name it!
