Expand your horizons all the way to Vermont in this sprawling Acra cottage with a bright, Contemporary interior, sitting on 2.15 acres. 

Part c.1850s mountain house, part hip, Contemporary abode, this 2,100-square-foot home comes with all the mountain views you can handle, thanks to its location facing the Catskills. While you can see them from various decks and outdoors spaces around the exterior of the house, you can also bask in them from the inside in nearly every room…

…like the enormous open kitchen and dining room with cathedral ceilings and plank floors…

…plank floors that, incidentally, continue throughout the rest of the floor plan, perfectly matching the exposed beams in the living room.

Speaking of the living room, its wood stove is cozy enough to keep the living room cozy…

…and, there’s even a one-bedroom, one-bath studio apartment included in the floor plan. Rent it out for income, or make it your homeschooling base-of-operations during the school year.


The other bedrooms come with lots of natural light and old-fashioned features, and some include access to the 700-square-foot deck outside.

Furthermore, there’s still more room for additional rentals, bedrooms, or live/work spaces. The additions are unfinished, but the potential is hard to ignore.

If you love winter recreation, hit the slopes at Windham Mountain, with Hunter also nearby. During the summer, take advantage of your proximity to Zoom Flume in East Durham, or scout around for some hidden swimming holes.
