Sited on 1.2 acres on the West Branch Delaware River in the charming “book village” of Hobart, this sprawling home is full of original character and includes a renovated and fully contemporary 1 bedroom/1.5 bath guest house.


The main house is definitely set up for full-time living and entertaining. The main living floor consists of multiple charming high-ceilinged spaces filled with original wood details including a large formal living room, separate dining room, additional living room/den with half bath. There’s also a well-appointed kitchen that opens out onto a lovely back deck and lush back yard that leads down to the river’s edge.


Upstairs are 4 restful bedrooms filled with more original wood moldings and details, plus 3 full bathrooms (one bath off the hallway and two other en-suite baths). Stairs lead up to the unfinished attic, which has tons of potential to become additional useful space, whether it be for storage, workspace, art studio, home office, etc.


The guesthouse is a converted old barn — a more contemporary companion to the main home with its tall ceilings, open floor plan, half bathroom, and ample bedroom with en-suite bath. The private deck looking out onto the backyard captures the relaxing sound of the river that runs along the back of the property. Additional features include radiant heated concrete floors, luxurious freestanding tub and enormous walk-in shower, laundry room, and a massive unfinished attic that could nearly double the square footage of the guest house.


Centrally located on Main St in Hobart (recently profiled in the New York Times, the village is home to eight independent bookstores), the property is 15 minutes or less from the Western Catskill towns of Bovina, Stamford, and Delhi, 30 minutes to Roxbury and skiing at Plattekill, and under 45 minutes to Windham, Hunter, and Belleayre Ski mountains. The area abounds with hiking trails (including the Catskill Scenic Trail which runs through the village), fishing access, and local farm stands and markets — all this about 2.5 hours from the GWB!


Note! We have also listed 760 Main Street – a restaurant and inn – if you’re interested in exploring the ultimate live-work situation!
