This 1930s cedar-shake cottage is a little slice of fairytale heaven in Dutchess County, but that’s not all. It’s also a potential live/work situation since the 1-acre property includes a fully renovated building currently used as a retail shop, complete with its own heat and air conditioning. The main two-bedroom/one-bathroom residence comes with a four-season glassed-in sunroom for luxuriating on warm days, as well as a fireplace for nippier nights. Hey, you know what would go perfectly here? A babbling brook! Oh, look, it’s got one. If living where we work involves a property like this, sign us up. It’s located about 10 minutes from the nearest Taconic State Parkway exit.
