This 1850s Clermont cottage skillfully balances rustic original features with stylish updates, all situated close to parks and historic sites. 

As much as we love a house that’s sleek and modern, every now and then, we long for something a little more down-home and comfortable, a space we wouldn’t feel weird about occasionally leaving a muddy footprint on the floor or a smudge on a windowpane. This 1,200-square-foot cottage seven miles south of Germantown hamlet in southern Columbia County, NY seems to fit the bill…

…with its original, c.1850s details still intact, like plank floors and built-ins. You can bet, though, that some updates have been made, including the roof, all of the mechanicals…

…and the spacious country kitchen with custom Shaker cabinets and updated appliances.

There’s even an eat-in side with a cozy wood stove.

The layout includes two bright bedrooms with closet space…

…as well as remodeled full and half baths.

Keep the interior free of muddy footprints thanks to the enclosed front porch/mud room…

…and spread out to the exterior on two acres of land, situated near  Clermont State Park, Tivoli Bays, the Bard College campus, Lake Taghkanic State Park, and Germantown hamlet. Imagine coming to this beauty at the end of a day of exploring the Hudson Valley…
