The Catskill Milliner

78 Spring St, Catskill, NY 12414, USA
$650,000

Description

The Catskill Milliner, an 1840’s stately Queen Anne Victorian, has been painstakingly restored and exquisitely redesigned by its current owners, a multimedia artist, and a fashion and architectural photographer. Moldings, doors, and floors have been brought back to life in modern reinterpretations of their original splendor, while still preserving their historic craftsmanship. Tackling the common ailment of natural light-starved Victorian homes, the owners installed 20 extra-tall 1800s casement windows in the living room, kitchen, bathrooms, and the master bedroom.

Inspired by the idea of being able to host large gatherings, the first floor has been opened up to create two grand living rooms, one running along the entire length of the house with enough room for an extended dining table at one end. There is a bright open-plan kitchen with carefully curated appliances including a rare Chambers Model C vintage bistro stove with a broiler, oven and a suvee capacitee, a repurposed and whimsical kitchen island, and two classic refrigerators. In addition, there is a generous sized half bath with laundry facilities. With a creative division of space that also allows for plenty of cozy nooks, the first floor is perfect for both roaring dinner parties and quiet Sunday mornings.

The second level has a more private floor plan with four bedrooms and three full bathrooms, each with a distinct aesthetic and design that reflects the personality of the owners through a few common elements. One of these elements is the unique hexagonal design on the tiled floors in each of the bathrooms and the kitchen, inspired by “Swedish sweater patterns”. Light can be found flooding through the many windows in the master suite where walls have been taken down between the conservatory and another underutilized room to create the home’s most expansive bedroom. The attic has been eliminated to expose the original wood beams, providing each bedroom with high ceilings and unique character. The roof has been entirely rebuilt and super-insulated to eliminate any draft and for energy efficiency.

The Catskill Milliner is not only an inspiring and tranquil place to come home to but also has been, with minimal effort, a very successful Airbnb rental bringing in more than $50K per year in revenue. It is walking distance to the village of Catskill, less than 10 minutes to downtown Hudson and Amtrak, and 2 hours from New York City.
