We know, today is supposed to be Five-Figure Friday. But the house that hit the market just yesterday fits this week’s vaulted-ceiling theme so well, we can’t ignore it.
This house in Sullivan County’s Hurleyville barely has a flat ceiling, if you judge from its angled exterior. The green metal roof has so many slopes that it gives off Quonset-hut vibes—in a good way.
The entry doesn’t disappoint: Open the front door and look up to a beamed peak. But make sure to look down so you don’t stumble on the stairs to the living room.
The living room has wood-and-stone wainscoting; a hardwood floor; and three big skylights that are cut into the angled wall. Upstater has experience with these angled skylights, and can attest that it’s cool to watch the rain and snow from them. The outer two are fixed, but the center has a casement opener for fresh air.
Take a hard left off the living room to find an expansive dining room.
Thick wooden beams anchor the tongue-and-groove ceiling, from which dangles a five-light chandelier. There’s a lot of wood going on here: horizontal planks line the wall under a triplet of windows, and vertical planks divide the dining room and kitchen.
The kitchen’s cabinets and counters could use an update, but they’re in good condition. New, stainless-steel appliances are a welcome addition.
This built-in breakfast bar is certainly…different. We think it could be repurposed into a pantry.
A laundry room has a nice little folding area and cabinets.
Three bedrooms and a loft-area office are upstairs, but the listing doesn’t seem to include images of them. We imagine they have the same timber, wood, and windows as the lower level.
This full bath was recently renovated, and features nice tilework and a deep, jetted tub.
This bathroom retains the woodsy ethos, with forest-green touches and a wall border that both bring back 1990s vibes.
A detached, two-car garage is perfect for vehicles, a workshop, or ATVs to cruise around the 2.24-acre property.
This crazy-angled house is in a beautifully wooded setting that’s certainly gorgeous at this time of year. It’s 10 minutes to downtown Hurleyville and the Hurleyville General Store—a jewel of a store that focuses on improving economic opportunities for people with disabilities.
