Catskill Farms: Hudson Valley Builders since 2002

Feed the Dream.

Catskill Farms has been designing, building and selling neat homes in the Catskills since 2002.  Our real estate reflects the architectural heritage of the region, is inspired by a wide range of American influences and eras, and dots the landscapes of Ulster, Sullivan and Dutchess Counties.

Simply, no company has put more families in good looking and hard working Hudson Valley homes than we have over the past 20 years.  240 and adding more every month.  If you are looking for a home that works, a home that inspires, a home that doesn't break the bank - Catskill Farms may be the upstate real estate choice for you, as it has been for so many.

Providing Respite and Getaways for 20 Years

Most of our clients are sheltering in place in homes we built for them in Ulster, Sullivan, and Dutchess counties. They aren’t crammed in their city apartments; they are enjoying the sunny spring days, the backyards, and the nearby woods.

It’s a rewarding feeling to know that the comfort and value we’ve always provided, now provides, not only respite but real safety--both physical and mental.

Our Story

19 years ago, Charles Petersheim left NYC for the tumbleweed towns of Western Sullivan County.  Inspired by the wind-swept prairie farmhouses and easily understood American Architecture that were found around the county, and somewhat conscious of the fact that the families he witnessed purchasing and then maintaining fixer uppers and this old house perhaps did not fully understand what they were signing up for, he embarked on his first new old farmhouse in 2002.  It took a while to build and complete.  It's still there - owned until recently by the same family that bought it 18 years ago.  A little more windswept, and very well-loved.

That was nearly 250 homes ago.  During that time, we've expanded our new homes into Ulster County and Dutchess County, improving their real estate options as well.  We've also developed a wide range of home styles, from our beloved farmhouses, to our well-received cottages, our not-too-dwell mid-century modern ranch homes, barns, mini-homes and other interesting architecture inspired by the Catskills.

It was never easy - lacking in experience, pooling from a shallow labor pool, selling into a very finicky marketplace, a global real estate collapse, hitting rock every time we put a shovel in the ground - but in the end, we are still here fighting the good fight for our clients each and every day.  Our efforts and judged and validated by all those country house porch lights that come on on a typical Friday night - one by one, in Towns as varied as Woodstock, Accord, Narrowsburg and more - as families arrive for a little rest and relaxation in their Catskill Farms' home.
