This two-bedroom contemporary’s in the southern Sullivan County Town of Mamakating, with access to a very private five-acre lake.
Built in 1986, it’s got all the hallmarks of a mid-’80s build—which means a great opportunity to rip out and redo.
But we wouldn’t do a thing to this atrium in the dining area. Overlooking a sylvan view, the greenhouse wall lets light just pour onto the hardwood floors.
That counter is smooooth. The kitchen has some updated appliances, a center island, and dusky wood cabinets. Twin windows over the sink offer up the same view as the atrium. It’s up to the new owner to trade the recessed can lighting for some modern pendants over the island, and maybe some newer countertops.
That balcony overlooking the living room is soooo 1980s, but the hardwood floor and fireplace make up for the time-machine feel.
The main-floor bath echoes the aesthetic with an oak-banded laminate vanity and brass-and-glass shower sliders, but those aren’t difficult to replace if the new owner wishes.
The main-floor primary bedroom is nicely finished with a hardwood floor and neutral walls. The ceiling is pitched but still rather low.
The bottom level has this room with sliders to the outside…
…and a half bath.
Head upstairs to the top level, which is mostly open with this loft area…
…and this sitting area with a geometric window.
A skylight illuminates the bathroom, which has a jetted tub and a single-sink vanity.
The bedroom up here has pink carpeting and white walls.
The 1,368-squaare-foot home is on a picturesque acre, replete with pretty stone walls and a large patio. It’s remarkably close to the Quickway, despite its secluded location: Shopping in Orange County’s Route 211 corridor is under 20 minutes away, and local restaurants are even closer.
Bonus: The house comes with deeded access to this five-acre sky lake that’s only used by deed owners.
