If you’re looking to downsize or land yourself a space to create, this artist cottage in south Kingston will knock your socks off. 

It may only have a single bedroom, but this 936-square-foot cottage packs quite a punch from the moment you see the sprawling front patio constructed of bluestone…

…and continuing inside with pressed tin ceilings, wood floors, and, our favorite feature of the week, exposed brick walls! If this sparkling, updated interior doesn’t delight you, you might be dead inside.

The layout is simple and open, with screened-in front porch/mud room that opens onto the front living room and adjacent dining area…

…culminating around the corner in the kitchen, which comes with new appliances. In fact, although this house dates back to the late 1800s, its creature-comfort attributes are new, like a wood stove hook-up, central air, and insulated doors and windows.

Upstairs you’ll find the sleeping loft with skylights and a big picture window…

…plus an extra side room that could be a small office, meditation room, or walk-in closet.

It even comes with a separate barn on the property.

In terms of location, if we were looking for a house in Kingston, south Kingston along the Rondout Creek would be our first pick. We love its industrial vibe, old mining caves, and rocky outcroppings, not to mention its proximity to Kingston’s East Strand area. But, be forewarned: the listing says this property is in a flood plain, so get yourself some flood insurance.
