If you manage to land yourself a home near Cooper Lake in Ulster County, consider yourself incredibly lucky. The location itself smacks of wild nature, with the lake (reservoir, more accurately) providing the crown jewel of the neighborhood. However, since Cooper Lake is less than 10 minutes from Woodstock village and less than 30 minutes from Kingston, there’s no need to sacrifice proximity to civilization for a bucolic setting close to peaceful waters.
Of course, real estate in sought-after settings often comes with a listing price to match, and this renovated 1930s bungalow mere steps from Cooper Lake’s shores is no different. At north of $600K, it’s on the higher end of what we generally post here on Upstater, but it’s look so pretty, we just couldn’t resist.
The larger-than-it-looks home includes 1900 square feet of interior space that’s open and inviting, complete with a fresh, modern renovation. Details include oak floors, built-in shelves, picture windows, large kitchen with stainless steel appliances and center island pantry, screened-in porch, four bedrooms with skylights, and an additional full bath on the second floor.
The half-acre property is situated in one of the prettiest spots in all of Ulster County, teaming with wildlife and old-growth forests. We did mention wildlife, right? Birdwatching is fun, but skip the outdoor bird feeders. There’s a reason this area is called “Bearsville,” after all.
