Living and Playing in Warwick, NY

The line between living and playing blurs when you live in a village like Warwick, NY. The downtown is a vibrant and busy business district, larger and more active than in the towns around it. It carries an old-fashioned small-town feel, but with an assortment of sophisticated shops, restaurants, galleries and stores that make it truly a pleasant place to live.
Surrounding Warwick are the rolling foothills of the Catskill mountains, replete with dairy and horse farms, wineries and farm stands. But what makes Warwick’s rural nature truly unique are the six apple orchards, ranging from 45 acres to 200 acres, all in a five-square-mile area around the village. These orchards are one of the mainstays of village life, bringing with them an active tourist industry and plenty of entertainment for locals during the warm weather months.
The Town of Warwick, NY includes three unique villages (Florida, Greenwood Lake, and Warwick) and five hamlets (Amity, Bellvale, Edenville, New Milford ...

Bethel, NY - Home of the Woodstock Nation offers much, much more!

The town of Bethel is situated 90 mi (144 km) from New York City In Sullivan County, and extends to the hamlets of White Lake, Kauneonga Lake, Smallwood, Hurd Settlement, Bushville, Briscoe and Bethel. It's claim to fame is that of being the host for the first Woodstock Music Festival held from August 15 through 18, 1969 which featured legendary artists like Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Crosby Stills and Nash and what would turn out to be an A-list of 1970s musicians, performing before an unexpected audience of 500,000.
A century before being the official capital of the Woodstock Nation, Sullivan County became famous for its large number of premium hotels in the “Borscht Belt'' of the 20th century. It was also heavily promoted as a 19th century sportsman’s destination. The opening of the Monticello and Port Jervis Railroad in 1870 made the area accessible by a direct two hour trip from New York City. The line ran from Piermont, NY, through Port Jervis and on to Lake Erie ...

Planning some renovations in 2021? Here’s where to start.

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
The new year is often time to look ahead and plan for improving parts of your home. If remodeling is on your wish list, you're not alone. According to Home Advisor, a digital marketplace that connects homeowners with prescreened, local service professionals, 41 percent of homeowners said that making their home better suited for lifestyle needs is a top priority as social distancing continues.
Whether it's a new kitchen, turning a bedroom into an office or creating an outdoor oasis, getting your plans in order in January is a great time to start projects scheduled during the new year. And first of all is deciding how much you want (or need) to spend.
But the problem with budgeting home improvement projects is that unlike budgeting to buy a car or a new cellphone, home renovations come with the possibility of unforeseen issues that must be fixed before proceeding with a project. Rule of thumb from se ...

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
Bet you never thought your home septic system could be ruined by pandemic "Stay and Home" orders. Guess again.
Stay-at-home orders to fight the Covid-19 coronavirus have affected us all. But there’s one part of your home right under your nose that you may be putting at risk without even thinking about it. If your home is not connected to a public sewage system, you probably use what the industry calls a Private Onsite Wastewater Treatment System. You probably know it as a septic system.
These systems use soil to treat water, eliminating disease-causing viruses and other organisms so that the water that re-enters the natural water table doesn’t harm our natural drinking supply.
However, your septic system can only do this so long as it isn’t overloaded with too great a workload. An overworked septic system can be prone to all kinds of problems ...
