A Tinker Street Cottage in Woodstock for $789K

  |  July 28, 2022

We’re concluding our Woodstock week where else but on Tinker Street—the iconic home of shops and restaurants that make downtown a destination.

This 1925 cottage has been built onto over the years, culminating in a 1,386-square-foot main house and various outbuildings on its over three-quarters-of-an-acre lot. The cedar-shake siding is classic and suits the cottage theme.

The living room is bright white and cheery, with a river-rock fireplace that reaches the ceiling and has a woodstove insert. The tall ceiling has a large dormer that holds a picture window overlooking the yard. It’s flanked by two other windows; the combination just pours light into the space.

The living room shares space with a dining area, and a half-wall separates that from the kitchen.

On the other side of that half-wall is one hell of a gorgeous Wolf range. A pot rack above means easy access for home chefs. The kitchen has a more rustic feel than the living room, with wood cabinets and heavy ceiling beams.

It’s brightened by white counters by the sink and a white tile backsplash. A bay window at the end is a haven for houseplants.


A pass-through forms a great breakfast nook with seating for three.

Ceramic tile covers the floor on this side of the kitchen, which has a wet bar, wine fridge, and double ovens. Behind that is the staircase leading upstairs.

Go past that wet bar into a tile-floored sun room that’s surrounded by windows and skylights.

It overlooks this deck and bluestone patio. You can see one of the property’s two greenhouses in this image.

A full bath is on the house’s main level, with rustic board wainscoting that matches the vanity, and a cute clawfoot tub.

There’s a half-bath upstairs, and two bedrooms. The primary bedroom is roomy, with wood floors and a snugly curved ceiling.

The second bedroom also has white walls and wood floors.

The detached two-car garage houses living space as well as vehicles. It’s tucked into one corner of the privacy fence that surrounds the side yard.

Wide-plank pine flooring is a showpiece in this one-bedroom apartment above the garage.

It has green tile on some counters and on the backsplash. The cabinets are wood Shaker-style, and the ceramic floor tile looks like terra-cotta.

The living area has triple windows that cover nearly an entire wall and illuminate that stunning floor. That spoke-wheel artwork is actually a colored window…

…that continues into the bedroom. This room is carpeted and has identical triple windows.

Here you can get a feel for the compound-like character of this well-thought-out property that also has a huge vegetable garden.

There’s a separate studio on the property that’s currently used as a private gym.

The second greenhouse overlooks a gorgeous Gunite pool. This house was listed only a couple days ago, and is sure to be snapped up soon. It’s next door to Sunfrost Farms, a popular grocery/juice bar/farm stand, and close to everything that makes Woodstock wonderful.
