The town of Shawangunk in Ulster County brims with bucolic beauty; its proximity to stellar hiking trails ups its popularity, too.

Today, Upstater is at a fully renovated c. 1890 farmhouse with room for a crowd. It technically has four bedrooms, but there’s so much bonus space within its 2,719 square feet that—according to the listing—it can sleep up to 14!

The entry is fresh and welcoming, with a wood floor and a richly toned staircase that stands out against white walls. A cherry-red door under the stairs adds a pop of color.

The main-floor living area is rather open-concept, with a brick column smack-dab in the center. A dining area is just off the entry, with a breakfast room next to it adjoining the kitchen.

A blocky wooden island is a solid central feature among the white cabinets and marble counters in the kitchen.

The living room has triple black windows and room for cozy seating.

The four bedrooms are spread throughout the house. This one has a bumped-out wall that’s perfect for a table and chairs.

The 4.5 bathrooms vary in design; however, they all follow a basically black and white theme, like this one.

A huge family/game room has lots of entertainment potential.

Another bathroom shares space with the laundry machines.

This bathroom has an oversized shower.

Sure, this bedroom looks basic, but its neutral walls and wood floors are a great blank slate for the new owner’s imagination.

Another bathroom shares the same designs as the others: black-and-white tile in the shower and dark gray tile on the floor.

This must be the primary bedroom. We love those dangling sconces. Like the other bedroom, there’s room for a table and chairs. If you suspect that this house is currently an Airbnb, your hunch would be correct.

An elephant shower curtain is an interesting touch in this bath, which also has built-in linen shelves and a mosaic tile floor.

An outdoor deck has space for several seating areas.

The deck’s color scheme contrasts with the house’s cedar siding.

It leads to the inground saltwater pool, which has a stamped-concrete deck.

The house sits on an acre, less than a mile from One with Land—where you can enjoy a sustainably minded menu.
