Today, Upstater is visiting a center-hall eyebrow Colonial that was built in 1890 but has been thoughtfully modernized.
Light cedar siding wraps the exterior of the three-bedroom home. The entryway is a later addition but has been carefully constructed with sidelights and a gabled, standing-seam metal roof.
The side porch, which continues around the entire rear of the house, has cable railings and another inviting entrance door.
Two living/family rooms flank the entryway. This one has warm oak flooring and a cast-iron wood stove. Big, wood-mullioned windows let the sunlight in.
The family room has original wide-board flooring, a coffered ceiling, another wood stove, and built-in shelving along one wall.
The kitchen features a cathedral ceiling that’s inset with a skylight. Rustic beams jut throughout the space. Blue cabinets form a U-shaped workspace that includes a three-seat breakfast bar.
A dining area is next to the kitchen, with French doors out to the deck.
This bathroom has moss-green walls over white wainscoting; a marble-tile floor; and an open, tiled shower.
Head up the center stairwell to the bedrooms. The hall showcases the original floor.
This bedroom has angular, light-blue walls and a slim window on one wall. We bet a couple of the eyebrow windows are just out of sight in this photo.
Two of the “eyebrows” appear in this bedroom, which has built-in shelves and a painted floor.
This bedroom has a peaked ceiling and appears a little more spacious than the others. Notice the board-and-batten doors: They exist throughout the house, and have original hardware.
This full bath has a big, white, dual-sink vanity; a painted floor; and simple, paneled, white wainscoting.
The rear deck is big enough for a party.
This 28′ by 32′ heated shop has a garage door and lots of windows; an insulated, full basement is just below it.
This heated garage has a studio space above it that’s perfect for guests.
Check out that kitchen space, with a gas range; stainless-steel apron sink; and custom wood cabinetry.
The bathroom has an open shower and a vessel sink.
Big enough for a bed and an office, this space is inviting and airy.
Trout are just waiting to be caught in Mud Creek here.
The main house, workshop, and studio/garage are spread out nicely on the 1.08-acre property. It’s three minutes to Roe Jan Brewing, and just four minutes to ski at Catamount Mountain Resort.
