A Classic, c.1972 Marlette Mobile Home in Germantown: $350K

  |  April 19, 2024

Upstater rarely features mobile homes, but today’s home is just too cute to ignore.

It’s a classic, c.1972 Marlette mobile home in Germantown, Columbia County. The Marlette company began in a lumberyard in Marlette, Michigan, in 1953, and soon became known for solid construction and practical design. This home has an addition on one side and a carport—all soaked in a navy blue color scheme.

The house is surprisingly roomy at 1,200 square feet. Slick wooden beams cross the ceiling in the living room, which shares space with a dining area.

It’s spacious enough for two sofas and additional seating, too.

Some original details remain, like those angled beams and a built-in hutch near the doorway to the kitchen.

A dining table that could seat eight sits in front of the bow window.

The kitchen has gray vinyl flooring, marble counters, and stainless-steel appliances.

The decor in the primary bedroom is stunning, and has access to the private rear deck.

The second bedroom is roomy; like the first bedroom, it has a wood-look vinyl floor.

The bath has a modern, marble-topped vanity and a white tub/shower.

Most mobile homes around here are on postage-stamp lots in spitting distance of neighboring homes. This house, however, is on about a third of an acre, with a back patio and pretty landscaping.

The slope of the property allows for lower-level storage underneath one side of the home.

Plus there’s a nice shed for extra storage.

The Hudson River is accessible at Ernest R. Lasher Memorial Park, a three-minute drive from here. And it’s 15 minutes to downtown Hudson, for dinner at Le Perche.
