The benefit of one-level living is that you can play with the ceiling heights inside without interfering with a floor above.
Today we’re in Putnam County, in the Carmel hamlet within the town of Kent, to check out this 1965 ranch with an example of just that—plus some dandy updates.
These steps lead to the front composite-material deck and the main entrance of the house.
The living room has hardwood floors, horizontal-board wainscoting, and a brick half-wall separating it from the kitchen. From here, you can peek at the pitched ceiling that’s in the kitchen.
A charcoal-toned tile floor and dramatic black quartz countertops are a nice match for the maple cabinets here.
The dining room is just off the kitchen, and what’s that big window to the right?
It’s a greenhouse-like atrium/sunroom, along with sliders out to…
…a second composite-material deck, facing the backyard.
The 1,619-square-foot house has three bedrooms and two baths. Head down two steps into the primary bedroom, which is big and bright, with a light-toned hardwood floor.
The ensuite bath has a tub-shower combo.
The two secondary bedrooms are a bit smaller. This one has carpeting, a closet, and two nice-sized windows.
This one, currently used as an office, has striking hardwood floors and a gray wall tone.
They share this cozy, updated bathroom.
A shed and a big, two-car detached garage round out the 1.6-acre property, which abuts Big Buck Mountain Multiple Use Area. Plus, hiking trails at Clarence Fahnestock State Park are just a few minutes away. A whole-house generator comes with the house, too.
