134 Main St.
If community life in an historic Catskills village is what you seek, look no further. This charming, bright and well-kept village home on Franklin's Main Street has been configured to work comfortably for a few or a crowd with four finished stories. Meticulously upgraded top to bottom inside, the wide front porch leads to a large living room with gas fireplace, reading/office nook and a main staircase with landing. There's a formal dining room behind french doors, a modern galley kitchen, a small first floor office/ guest space and modern vintage-style full bath with soaking tub, plus a four season sun room with skylight overlooking the back yard. An energy efficient split duct wall unit cools downstairs and the master bedroom. Upstairs has been recently updated, with three bedrooms and a bathroom with jet tub and laundry. Up the attic stairs you'll discover an adorable sloped-roof finished playroom and additional room that could be an office, studio or guest room. The beautiful wide plank wood floors are all refinished up and down. In the lowest level, professionally dug out in 2003 and finished as living space, you'll find an exercise room with vinyl flooring, a sweet guest room and another room currently used as an office connected by a half bath. The remaining unfinished space includes a double kitchen sink and a Bilco door to outside, so the potential exists for an independent unit. There's an attached one car garage, and a fenced-in dog run. New roof on garage and porch 2021. The property has stunning gardens, a stone meditation pool created by local stone artist Robert Johnson, raised bed vegetable garden, and plenty of room to run. Behind that, there is nothing but meadow. A whole house generator means you'll always have power, and seller did a pre-listing home inspection, so you can feel confident this house is just as solid as it looks.
