Different & Delightful 1940s Cottage in Bucolic Mountain Dale, Sullivan Co., $195,000

Do you ever surf the residential real estate listings and land upon a house you love so much, your eye starts to twitch? If so, welcome to the club. We’ll see you at the meetings. Usually when that happens, a quick look at the listing price will wet-blanket us back to reality, but not the case with this unique cottage in the northern Sullivan County. And, if you’re anything like us, the less-than-$200K price tag makes it all the more appealing, as if its Mod interior wasn’t reason enough to send you scrambling for the “Contact Agent” button on Zillow.

Speaking of the interior, the silo shape of the house lends the 1600 square foot floor plan plenty of whimsy while elegant details like wood floors, horizontal pine board siding, open LR/K/DR flow, and an abundance of natural light give the home substance beyond the novelty of its unusual look. Includes two bedrooms, a full and half bath, and 3 acres of land that create an oasis of privacy that’s accessible to civilization. Mountain Dale hamlet is a mile away, and a quick 15 min. jaunt east puts you over the border into Ulster County. Estimated property taxes are around $2600/year. What’s the catch? Flooding? Mosquitos? ROUSes (rodents of unusual size)?

129 Spring Glen Road, Mountain Dale (Century 21)
