Lovingly renovated and upgraded by its current owners in 2016, The Clair Inn on Route 52 in Youngsville (Town of Callicoon) incorporates a café/take out area; bar with punched tin ceiling and walls; parlor/lounge area; dining room; immaculate commercial kitchen; 4 en suite rental rooms; third floor with possibilities; large back deck; charming red barn; landscaped side lawn; wide open, level back lawn; and large off-street parking area.
This completely turnkey building is ready to serve a growing community of foodies in this in-demand part of the Catskills, conveniently located between Livingston Manor and Callicoon. With an increasing supply of local foods and food products, it's a great opportunity for a chef / owner or entrepreneur to attract both diners and overnight guests.
The four bedrooms on the second floor have been given immaculate makeovers, with modern bathrooms in each. A pretty lounge sits at one end of the the wide corridor, and housekeeping is delighted to have a laundry room so convenient to the bedrooms. Up to the third floor and the possibilities await in the four rooms that exist but remain unfinished. The varying ceiling angles make for interesting spaces.
The kitchen was completely overhauled and redesigned for maximum efficiency, but still has a wall of original built-in cupboards. The back deck supplements the dining space in warmer weather. On one side of the house, under a couple of mature maples is a lovely manicured lawn with landscaped border, while out back a larger lawn could be a great spot for a tent or other entertaining.
The red barn injects some rural charm (it needs a new roof) and could be reimagined as a catering space, of a spot for your live music.
The septic and leach field are on the premises and the system has been upgraded and works without issue, even when the restaurant and inn are at capacity. The property has municipal water. The Buderas boiler is about 7 years old.
