On a picture-perfect country road, surrounded by views and upstate charm—and yet just half a mile from the direct center of downtown Livingston Manor—is Little North, a high-design, fully renovated mixed-use commercial and residential space right off Exit 97.
This 1.75 acre property, lush with trees and a massive, event-ready lawn, currently houses a state-of-the-art kitchen, restaurant, and gourmet market, which quickly became a pillar of the Livingston Manor community and raised the bar for local food and design. The two-story building was gut-renovated and modernized in 2021, custom-designed in 2022, and meticulously crafted into a commercial kitchen with indoor and outdoor dining, 10-foot windows, and a contemporary all-glass garage door downstairs, as well as a brand-new 3-bedroom apartment upstairs.
Three bedroom, one bathroom apartment with commercial space | 2,440 square feet on 1.75 acres | Fully renovated commercial and residential space | Commercial kitchen | Indoor and outdoor dining space | Venue potential | All glass garage door downstairs | Cement flooring | Vertical oak paneling and custom shelving | Asking $679,000

Luxury finishes, an airy, open layout, and plenty of outdoor space prime this property for a wide array of potential ventures.

Turn-Key Kitchen & Market:
For the culinary-minded, Little North is a chef’s idyll. Designed as an inspiring and uplifting place to cook, the kitchen workstations are sunlit by 10-foot windows, allowing chefs a view of the countryside as well as their customers. Thick quartz countertops with extra-high backsplashes, natural stone tiling from floor to ceiling, and earthy, luxury surfaces span the space. The kitchen currently and comfortably houses a top Rotisol-France rotisserie model, near-new double convection oven, 18-inch chargrill, and six-burner range. The side of the building conceals an eight-square-foot walk-in refrigerator. Little North currently has a wine and beer license, and the building has been carefully outfitted with every standard for making subsequent licensing achievable.
Solar panels owned and installed in 2021 help with the electric bill, and Little North runs on the town’s water and sewer systems—a vital asset for opening a food-and-drink business.
Renovated Three Bedroom Apartment:
Upstairs, the renovated, three-bedroom apartment has a full kitchen with new appliances, an open dining and living area, and a spacious bathroom with double sinks and walk-in glass shower. Currently serving as an office and additional merchandising storage for the market downstairs, it is in and of itself a turnkey home or ready-made rental property with new floors, a skylight, and plenty of storage space.
The Grounds: 1.75 Acres of Manicured Lawn and Lush Forest:
Surrounded by 1.75 acres of manicured yard and lush forest, Little North embodies the elevated farm-to-table store or country business. Lilac bushes dot the edges of the backyard’s privacy fencing. With plenty of room for outdoor seating in the grassy, accessible yard—of a size impossible to find on Main Street—the space is perfect for al fresco events like small weddings, birthdays, private dinners, or a play area for children. Customers park in the 130-foot dedicated parking lot, and there is additional private residential and staff parking in back. Outdoor picnic tables included.
The Area: Livingston Manor in the Catskill Mountains
Surrounded by greenery and country charm, with relatively few neighbors, the centrally located Little North is the first business off the highway exit, and only a half-mile from Main Street in Livingston Manor.
In addition to its abundance of commercial and residential space, the property is situated at the base of the Catskill Park and across from privately owned land, which the owner plans to preserve, so lush green views will always remain.
