This home was built in 1951 in a classic Cape Cod style. Beautiful brick exteriors speak to lavish countryside living in the Hudson Valley. A silver asphalt shingle roof provides striking contrast and caps off a truly charming estate. Families will find a ton of space for activities on the well-manicured lawn. When the seasons change in Olivebridge, surrounding trees and abundant gardens display a full spectrum of colors. Stonework around the house is especially beautiful, elevating patios, stairs, and a small but ornate support wall.


While this rural escape is just as scenic year-round, the opportunity to enjoy the inground pool and backyard paradise in the summer months is something special. Well-planned landscaping carves out a private area for swimming, sunbathing, and relaxing outdoors. To really ramp up the comfort, this saline pool is fully heated. When you’re swimming at the base of the Catskill Mountains, the fresh air has never felt so good.


Inside, every part of this Olivebridge brick house has a distinctive personality. Sliding patio doors invite residents and guests alike into several comfortable living areas. Bask in the warm rays of a setting sun and take in Mohonk views at every time of the year. Modern furnishings and open spaces create a natural progression throughout the home, keeping everyone at ease.

Who wouldn’t want to curl up around a stone fireplace in the cold winter months? A blend of vintage architectural, pastoral living, and modern interior design permeates the entire house. Hardwood floors line much of the 1,670 sq ft of space to explore. Just off this living room sits a generous dining area, perfect for gatherings of any occasion.
Fewer places in this mountainside retreat in Olivebridge are as captivating as the kitchen. A vast amount of counterspace, range hood, double-stove setup, and more will please even the fussiest of home chefs. A gorgeous island is the perfect spot for extensive prep work or casual breakfast dining. Wide windows and a glorious skylight keep this area of the house bright and vibrant.
Wake up to beautiful mornings in the Catskills in one of the home’s two spacious bedrooms. This homestead is also equipped with two full bathrooms and one half-bath, making it ideal for young families or couples who love to host guests overnight. If even more space is desired, the finished basement downstairs offers plenty of space for living or entertaining. Plus, a second fireplace keeps things warm and toasty down there.
