For Sale: 13 Acres + 8 Bedrooms for Under $200K
This Durham farmhouse, on a quiet gravel road off Route 145, sits on 13 acres with a little mountain stream weaving through its property. The 4,000-squarefoot home has 8 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a 2-car garage. It's priced at $199,777 by RealtyUSA.
If you want to try-before-you-buy, it's available for rent on HomeAway, with prices averaging $333 per night. It sleeps 24 and seems to have a game room with a ping pong table... and a lot of dated, mismatched bedding. I can vouch for its glorious setting, though, and we've met some friendly neighbors who live right down the road. This less-than-luxe rental could be ripe for a makeover into a truly gorgeous Catskills home.
