We’re roaming over to Romer Street, Phoenicia for this cedar shake bungalow that would make a mighty-fine love nest or writer’s cottage.
And, it just so happens that Phoenicia is situated in the town of Shandaken, which was recently dubbed one of the hottest upstate towns of 2020. From this two-bedroom, 1920s Craftsman, you can walk to everything that makes Phoenicia such a great small town: the Phoenicia Playhouse, Brio’s, the public library, antique stores, galleries, trails, and tubing on the Esopus Creek.
Consisting of 1,451-square-foot interior, the cottage features hardwood floors throughout, plus a stone living room fireplace. The kitchen is semi-open to the rest of the first floor via double French doors. Large windows and glass sliders invite natural light to come pouring in.
In addition to the two bedrooms and full bath (complete with clawfoot tub), there’s even more space on the second floor…
…where a large but unfinished attic might make a excellent master bedroom, home office, or studio.
Exit through the kitchen door onto the back deck, which overlooks a near-quarter-acre yard.
If you’ve got the ability or the means, you could have the exterior spruced up and the interior tweaked and updated. After that, settle in to writer your magnum opus, or get cozy with a companion in front of the fire. Either way, this cottage does not disappoint.
