We’re giving this Sullivan County A-Frame cottage an A+ for both its distinctive look and enviable location in the Catskills. 

This week on Upstater, we’re celebrating the utilitarian-yet-stylish A-Frame house. Particularly popular between the 1950s and the late 1970s, the triangular structure has been around for a lot longer than that, built in snowy climes to keep snow from building up on the roof. Furthermore, since the A-Frame is a relatively inexpensive model to build, they practically scream “vacation home,” and, once upon a time, you could order them in kit-form from department stores like Macy’s.

This particular A-Frame was built in the early 1980s and features some new additions, including new laminate floors, kitchen appliances, carpets, and bathroom. The 742-square-foot interior features a ton of natural light through multiple large windows and sliders, a common trait in A-frame design…

…as well as a cozy wood stove and an open, well-equipped kitchen. There’s also a bedroom, plus a second-floor sleeping loft.

In the living room, the sliding glass doors open onto a huge deck with mountain views…

…connecting to the rest of the wrap-around deck that connects the A-Frame with another cabin, which currently house’s the brand-new washer and dryer. Get the mud and grime off before you come inside using the outdoor shower.

Fans of total privacy are going to appreciate the 25-acre plot of land that surrounds this pair of cute cabins. Gather fruit from the apple orchard, berry-pick the blueberry and blackberry bushes, and take long hikes around the property during the warmer months. In the winter, fire up the snowmobiles. The property is situated in western Sullivan County, NY, less than ten miles from Roscoe village.
