Just east of the Northern Catskills, find Bargebottom, a 100-year-old home colloquially named after a nearby landmark where wooden barges harvested ice in the 1900s. Fully renovated in 2011, this Saugerties property combines its classic charm and nautical vibes to create an escape along the river. Bargebottom has more than 100 feet of river frontage, along with a dock, personal beach, and a multi-tiered deck perfect for get-togethers. Inside, it’s fitted with a chef’s kitchen, including stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, and an undermount sink; the kitchen is close to the patio and deck entrances for outdoor eating. On the first floor, enjoy sweeping, seasonal views of the Hudson River and natural lighting with its four-season room. Use the second-story loft as a workspace — also offering inspiring river views. Other amenities include a first-floor master bedroom, a claw-foot tub, and three gas fireplaces. Outside, explore its many natural perks, like a fire pit, hot tub, and bluestone patio. For any interested boaters, there’s even a furnished boathouse with landscaped steps to a wood and stone pier.

Standing on a former sandstone quarry site, this 1870s home hit the market for the first time. Offering views of the Hudson River and the Mario Cuomo Bridge from a majority of its rooms, it has four stories and three spacious porches. Inside, find an updated kitchen with a brick backsplash and impressive wood paneling. The entire home is decked out in Douglas fir and wide-plank chestnut wood flooring, and has French doors and mahogany banisters. Entertain guests in the formal dining room or 40-square-foot porch attached to the kitchen and family room; or escape to a hideaway in the wood-walled library. Outside, there’s a climate-controlled greenhouse prepped for seasonal planting, a koi pond, a gunite pool, a hot tub, an outdoor fireplace, and a pizza oven. There’s even an arched brick gate that leads you to Nyack’s Old Erie Path (a rail trail) and the Raymond G. Esposito Trail.
