A Creekside One-Bedroom Cottage in Saugerties: $489K

  |  May 20, 2024

There are plenty of benefits to living large: Room to sprawl, space to collect and display favorite things, and areas to entertain a crowd (or escape from one). Yet, tiny homes carry their own charm, as this week’s Upstater tours attest.

Today, we’re at an Esopus Creekside one-bedroom cottage in Saugerties that comes in at a mere 560 square feet. Still, it’s been beautifully renovated and is move-in ready. The charcoal-gray exterior is attractive, with a screened sunroom overlooking the creek next to a large side deck. Stairs follow the slope of a hill down to the creek.

With woods across the way, the views are tranquil.

The sunroom is airy and bright, with wood-look laminate flooring.

The house was built in 1948 but has been updated to include a ductless, modern HVAC system with independently controlled zones in each room.

Just past the sunroom—which can double as a dining room—the living room is an open-concept area next to the kitchen.

Glazed white tile forms the backsplash for bright white cabinetry and counters. Stainless-steel appliances add pizzazz.

Warm lighting and those wood-tone floors keep the space from looking sterile.

The bedroom has a mix of casement and sash windows, with neutral walls and more laminate flooring.

A laundry closet is conveniently hidden in the bedroom, too.

The bathroom isn’t big, but it packs a designer punch with gray tile in the shower and marble on the vanity and the floor.

A petite stone patio sits just off the side deck, and grassy spots are perfect for planting or playing. The property is 0.18 acres.

It’s just a three-minute drive to downtown Saugerties for luscious cookies and other baked goods at Hudson Valley Dessert Company.
