1970s cottage

For those who don’t need a-whole-lotta house, you’re going to love this week on Upstater, starting with this fab 1970s cottage built for two.

Having a big house isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, especially if there’s only one or two of you. Considering downsizing, or looking for a second home/potential rental income? Stick around Upstater all this week as we feature our favorite little houses on-the-market in the Hudson Valley and Catskills. First on deck: A 1,130-square-foot, single-bedroom A-Frame with an understated, rustic interior that feels bigger than it is.

1970s cottage

The lay-out here is simple with a great room on the main floor, small kitchen, dining area, brick fireplace, and vaulted ceilings. Opposite the kitchen is the home’s en suite bedroom, which comes with its own fireplace flanked by glass doors, mirroring the look of the living room. Hope you love knotty-pine!

1970s cottage

Currently, the entire second-floor loft portion of this interior is a huge main bathroom with soaking tub, but the potential to turn it into a second bedroom is apparent.

Take a good long gander at the 1.57-acre property from either the front or back deck…

…and, when civilization calls, head west to Woodstock village just four miles away, or east to Saugerties village about 8.5 miles away. Kingston, Catskill, and Hudson are all within a half-hour’s drive, with NYC less than 2.5 hours away.
