Ranch 60 Sold

A new Ranch just Sold on Friday. Ranch 60

Neat 2000 sq ft Ranch, with views, woods, pasture, and a little stream. The land up at the Crest in North Branch is like the gift that keeps giving - it's a truly unique piece of land with some out of this world attributes in the view and land experience column. Of course, the 200 acres could really be screwed up with some poor house location planning, since while the openness creates lots of opportunities, it also creates real challenges and risks of one house impacting another negatively.

These 2000 sq ft ranches pack a lot of punch, and feel comfy and cozy and cabiny-like. The Buyers came from Erik Freeland of Countryhouse Realty. The buyers signed up around half way through construction which means they had a good idea of what the house would look and feel like when finished. Lots of our buyers join us when the house isn't started, which takes a fair leap of faith.

Excited about economic turmoil and volatility, hoping it bring some opportunities not yet defined or understood. I'm already starting to feel like the buyers of Catskills real estate are starting to flee to value and safety, and that always benefits us with our long track record of providing real value to our clients.
