If you like little cottages, you’ll love today’s Upstater pick.

The three-bedroom, one-bath home is just 880 square feet, but it’s within the Lake Peekskill community with access to its community center and lots of recreation opportunities on the lake itself.

The tiled entry has a double-door closet and sliding doors that lead into the living room.

A white-painted stone fireplace anchors the living room, which shares space with the dining area and has another set of sliders out to the backyard.

With a house this tiny, the kitchen’s got to be small. But it’s functional, with several white cabinets and drawers and beige counters that match the ceramic-tile floor.

The bedrooms are all fully carpeted.

Like the rest of the rooms in the house, they’re compact in size.

Windows are average-sized, but they brighten up the rooms.

The bathroom has white tile wainscoting that’s chair-rail height along most of the walls, but climbs to the ceiling in the tub/shower area (which sports a mirror on one of its sliding glass doors).

The property measures just under a tenth of an acre. The backyard is cute, with a stone wall delineating a concrete patio.

Behind the stone wall is a big, fenced-in, terraced area that’s perfect for flowers, veggies, and other plants.

Downtown Peekskill, with eateries like the Birdsall House on Main Street, is about a 15-minute drive southeast from here. But if you want a quiet space in a tree-lined community, minutes from kayaking, fishing, and other lake fun, be sure to find out more about 198 Walnut Road, Lake Peekskill, from Christine Yoo with Howard Hanna Rand Realty
