The cool, rainy weather we’ve gotten lately has left us feeling raw down to our bones. On days like that, what we need is the warmth that our ancestors sought in a nice fire. So this week, Upstater’s featuring homes with wood stoves and wood-burning fireplaces.
Today we happen to return to Ellenville, to a house that was just listed over the weekend. It has four bedrooms and one bath in 1,290 square feet. A flight of steps leads to the porch, which is covered at the front door but wraps around one side to an open deck. Six slim sliding windows line the front of the house, and latticework covers the foundation.
Those sliding windows make up a sunroom, which is currently housing the television. An arched doorway leads to the living room.
Nice wood beams crisscross the ceiling here, and a set of spindled-railing stairs lead to the second floor. The floors are hardwood, and the walls in the open-concept living room/kitchen are a neutral tone.
A toasty wood stove perches on a bluestone pedestal in the living room.
The kitchen has oak cabinets, with identical cabinets in a small island/breakfast bar. A hanging rack keeps pots handy. The counters might need an update, but the appliances are stainless steel and look newer.
This dining room is just off the kitchen, and has a door to the outside.
The house’s only bath is on the main floor, with a white, Shaker-style, single-sink vanity and a tub/shower.
The wood beams and molding in the living room are repeated here in this bedroom, which has a ceiling fan and two windows. The floors are hardwood here, too.
There are two bedrooms upstairs and two on the main level, but it’s hard to tell where this one is located. It’s got wood floors and neutral walls, with two windows.
The floor of the outside deck could use stripping and repainting, but the railings are nice. The house definitely has been well maintained and doesn’t really show its age, though it was built in 1930.
There is a lot of outdoor space here, from the deck…
…to the half-acre lot on which the house sits. It’s just off Route 209, heading into the village of Ellenville, and it’s only three minutes to the center of the village and delicious Mexican food at Gaby’s Cafe.
