WARREN – The luxury real estate firm of Klemm Real Estate has listed the long-time country home of famed author Philip Roth for $2.95 million. The property consists of 147± acres and is a mix of pastures and woods peppered with antique stone walls. The centerpiece of the property is a c1790 antique home with 3 bedrooms, 3 fireplaces and many original antique features. Additionally, there is a barn and pool, as well as Roth’s charming writing cottage with wood stove.
“This is a rare offering. Not only was this the residence of one of the great authors of our time, but this is a magical property in a serene and utterly private setting with a wonderful antique home commanding over so much acreage,” said Peter Klemm, broker of the firm and listing agent of the property.
Roth, who died in 2018, was the noted author of more than 20 novels as well as numerous short stories. He earned a master’s degree from the University of Chicago and was also awarded honorary degrees from such universities as Harvard, Brown and Columbia.

The Goshen Business Circle’s Discovery Team continues to work with the Town of Goshen to explore the possibilities for improving economic development through the establishment of an Economic Development Commission.
The Commission will be structured as is an advisory board, taking direction from the community itself and adapting to its needs and desires. The Commission has no authority to designate business locations or uses, which is the responsibility of the Planning & Zoning Commission. The direction it pursues will include cooperation with other interested parties, including the GBC, Goshen residents, and the P&Z.
The principal concept for the Commission is to support local businesses in a manner that protects property values and is compatible with Goshen’s rural character. Initial goals are to fill vacant commercial space in the town, promote an attractive and welcoming Village Center, and appeal to younger families- all of which are critical to sustaining our community.
While there are several different perspectives from community input, “All of us want the same thing.” Said GBC co-chair Dawn Wicks. ”We want to maintain the quaint, small town we know and love, not change it into anything else.“
Focus groups and input sessions open to all residents will be held to structure the Commission’s goals and activities. The principle objective is to enhance Goshen’s economy in such a way as to preserve the vitality of the community, balanced with the needs of a small historical town. Says co-chair Amy Tobin, “The Commission must align its work with the town’s rural character and rich history. No one is seeking any change that will erase the town of which we are so proud.”
All activities and plans for the Commission are a result of community consensus. The group wants to emphasize that an Economic Development Commission should bring opportunity to the town of Goshen and advocate for what the community needs to energize its residents to invest in, and retain Goshen’s vitality and economic growth.
