About Steve Kramer
4/21/14 BACK TO THE WATERFRONT On August 6, 2001 I wrote a story of us buying our weekend house in Saugerties. All our friends thought we were crazy to buy a vacation house 15 minutes from our house in Woodstock. It was in 1992 and Saugerties was still a town that was down on its luck. There were a lot of empty stores. Our house, only one mile from town, seemed a million miles away with the deck cantilevered over the Esopus Creek. In my story I told of happily buying antiques and chatckas from the stores in town for our house that had been built from a kit from Sears in the 30’s. Fast forward to 2014. Daisy, our stylish daughter, who had spent 15 years in LA, came home with her husband Van and five month old daughter Starla. They stayed in our cottage while they established their boutique DIG in Saugerties. After a year they bought their own house on the creek. This year Daisy and Van decided that our house needed an update. They wanted our house to be totally cool, down to the Jonathan Adler dishes that they sell in their store. With their taste and our credit card the house was totally transformed. There’s a smart TV that gets every channel plus Netflix, YouTube, Face Book and anything else you can think of. There’s a new stylish kitchen and the bathroom is ultra-luxurious with its radiant heated floor and heated towel rack. The small windows in the master bedroom were replaced with French doors to the deck. A larger window was put in the second bedroom that allows a full view up the creek. The wood floors were sanded and a high gloss finish makes them glow. continued below.....
Why Steve Kramer chose Saugerties South
The final touch to remove any signs of the old place was painting the wood ceiling white. Since we bought the house the land across the creek became the Esopus Creek Conservancy Thanks to the marvels of the internet (which didn’t exist when we bought the house in 1992) we are able to rent it out by the week when we are not using it. Brains or luck? We were thinking of buying in Phoencia, which probably would have gotten washed away during Irene. Saugerties has become one of the ten coolest towns in the U.S. I think it was destiny. We loved the water for kayaking, swimming and hearing the water as we doze off to sleep. We always loved sitting on the deck or kayaking watching the changing fall foliage
