A 1735 stone house on 32 acres in Saugerties, a Queen Anne Revival home in Stockbridge and an early 18th-century farmhouse with a guest cottage in Collegeville.

This home, known as the Parsonage, was built for the clergy of the Katsbaan church, established in the early 18th century a few miles away. The house sits at the property’s highest point, offering sweeping views of Kaaterskill High Peak, in the Catskill Mountains. It is a five-minute drive from Bristol Beach State Park on the Hudson River, a popular spot for kayaking and fishing, and less than 10 minutes from a diner, an ice-cream shop and a summer farmers’ market in the center of town.

The city of Hudson is about half an hour away. Driving to Albany takes 45 minutes. New York City is about two and a half hours away by car, depending on traffic.

Size: 2,960 square feet

Price per square foot: $498

Indoors: The house sits at the end of a long driveway, surrounded by rolling lawns, mature trees, landscaped beds and a fenced vegetable garden.

The main entrance is through a blue-painted door in the center of a bluestone-and-limestone facade. Inside is a foyer with wood floors and a staircase to the second floor.

To the right is a sunny living room with built-in bookshelves, a wood-burning fireplace with a brick surround and a simple mantel painted the same soft taupe as the walls.

To the left of the foyer is a dining room with a brick fireplace fitted with a wood stove. This space connects to a large kitchen with reclaimed pine floors, white cabinetry, soapstone counters, a Bertazzoni range and access to a powder room with a porcelain pedestal sink. A staircase off the kitchen leads up to a home office with mountain views.
