Contemporary in Goshen, $259,000

And now for something completely different than a wedding cake Victorian. Ranch homes in residential neighborhoods aren’t normally our bag, but this has some good points worth mentioning: The price isn’t bad, and it’s not far from the village of Goshen. The taxes, however, are relatively low for the area. It’s also got an in-ground pool and a nice deck for entertaining.

Otherwise, it’s a straight-up asymmetrical 70s contemporary with lots of interesting angles, hard wood floors, roomy kitchen and dining room, and a family room that’s set up as a movie theater. Cathedral ceilings in the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Mysteriously, the listing says that it has “2.2” baths. We’ve encountered this type of situation before, and we are still baffled and slightly scared by its implications. We suspect, however, that it means that there are two full baths and two partial baths. Let’s just go with that.

The house located right in between the villages of Goshen and Chester. But more importantly, it’s just a couple of miles away from a place called the Castle Fun Center, which combines two of our favorite things: Roller skating and buildings shaped like castles (kidding on the last part, but not about roller skating. NEVER about roller skating).
