A Post-and-Beam Bungalow in Hunter for $550K

  |  December 15, 2022

We’re lingering in Haines Falls today to catch a tour of this magnificent Catskills bungalow with two bedrooms and a lofty surprise.

The house was built in 2001 by Handcrafted Builders of the Hudson Valley. But it’s got old-fashioned vibes, from its post-and-beam front porch to the cedar siding that encloses it.

A cedar-and-stone entry gate greets you at the driveway.

The double front doors open to a stunning, wood-paneled great room. Six-over-six windows wrap nearly all the walls, and another huge window sits over the front door, at the peak of the vaulted, tongue-and-groove ceiling.

A dramatic carved bluestone fireplace takes up one corner of the great room, flanked by windows.

A loft with an Alpine air highlights this end of the room. It’s accessed by that stocky ladder in the hallway.

The kitchen occupies the other side of the great room. Hunter-green cabinets sit above and below a beige-tiled backsplash. A farmhouse table, topped in cherry red, serves as the eating area, though the new owner could easily install a roomy island in its place.

The hallway, done up in wood planking and hardwood floors, leads to a bathroom and two bedrooms.

The bathroom has brown marble flooring and a glass-doored, spacious shower.

This bedroom has white paneled wainscoting and a neat, built-in bedstead.

The primary bedroom has a double-door closet.

Head up the hallway ladder and…wow. A fully carpeted loft with bookcases, storage banquettes…

…and dramatic dormers. This is a dream of a space for kids, writers, or artists. It’d be a really cool bedroom, too.

The house is on 2.7 acres of woodland and meadows. There’s a bluestone patio, a hot tub, and a firepit.

A trail leads to the Gooseberry Creek. The property is just minutes to Hunter Mountain, hiking trails, and downtown Hunter’s bars, restaurants, and shops.
