Orange County A-Frame Mid-Mod Cottage with a Backyard Cabana, $154,000

No week full of Mid-Mods would be complete without an A-Frame home. This one was built in 1963 and is actually more like two A-Frames smooshed together to form one mega-A-Frame with enough upward space that you probably won’t have to worry about hitting your head on anything (are we the only ones who worry about such matters? Those of us with tall people living in our homes know what’s up). Includes over 1500 square feet, two full baths, and two bedrooms with the possibility of a third. Lot size is over a half acre, so this property offers a bit of bang for its $154,000 listing price.

Located in south western Orange County near the Delaware River, this house offers those mid-mod delights we know and love, like stonework, knotty pine paneling, big windows and sliding glass doors, and cathedral ceilings. Stained glass adorns the front door. What’s under the carpeting? We would love to know. The master bedroom seems positively enormous, and the home has central A/C. Situated along the Shingle Kill creek near the PA/NY border, and less than two hours from NYC. Property taxes around $3000/year.

But let’s get down to brass tacks: There’s a cabana with a bar in the backyard. Need we say more?
