There is a certain type of charm that is found in older homes, with their intricate details and compelling history and if the walls of 123 Bedell Avenue in Highland NY could speak, they would certainly have some interesting tales to tell.

The home itself, a circa 1848 Colonial farmhouse has seen its fair share of history over the years, but it is the 5,000+ square foot barn that really makes a statement. Here’s a little tale from the current owners about this barn’s not so common inhabitants.

Now that spring has arrived, (and yes, despite that freak snowstorm earlier this week, it is infact still spring) we’re seeing an increase of homes entering the market. Highland, in particular has some great properties that have just been listed, but with amenities as great as these properties possess, we don’t think they will be up for grabs too long!

A townhouse is a great option for young professionals or small families as a starter home or for retirees who are looking to scale back their home ownership responsibilities. Owning a townhome usually gives you access to additional amenities and use of shared spaces in the complex and also means less maintenance and upkeep on outdoor spaces (always be sure to look at HOA fees and what they include while

Highland Town Sign.jpgI was born and raised in Highland, New York but whenever I would meet someone new, especially someone who was not local, when asked where I was from, Highland was never my answer. It’s not that I wasn’t proud to be a “Highlander”, or that I didn’t love my hometown, but if I provided an honest answer to that question, I was always met with blank stares of  non-recognition- where in the world is Highland??

Highland always seemed to me to be the quiet, commonly forgotten about

In Taft Street realty’s latest market update, we wanted to share two recently sold homes in Ulster County NY to give you a better idea of what’s selling right now and where Highland NY home values are at this spring.
