Catskill Farms has been building brand new farmhouses in the Catskill Mountains, and amazingly we have pulled it off pretty well. We have been able to capture that same narrative of the original Catskill Farmhouses. Families enter, and families don't want to leave. Possibly that accounts for our 6 homes in contract and 3 additional homes on the waiting list.
Most Catskill Farmhouses need a lot of work, have low ceilings, have drafty windows, have no insulation, and have mechanical systems more fragile then most buyers realize upon purchase.

It's not easy giving a new house a soul, but Catskill Farms is giving it the old college try.
