This Saugerties bungalow has the front-porch vibes that Upstater’s been loving this week—with the added bonus of screens to keep out those annoying insects.
This two-bedroom home was built in 1925. It has a mix of clapboard and painted cedar shakes on the exterior walls. The front steps and door into the screened porch are a complementary rust tone.
A small living room is off the front porch, with wall-to-wall carpeting and cream walls that need a refresh.
Twin pillars flank the doorway into the dining room.
A white chandelier hangs over the dining space. A lot of the wood trim throughout the home is painted white, too.
The kitchen is a mix of white tiles on the walls, brown linoleum floors, and teal accents on the trim and cabinets.
The appliances, including this fridge and gas range, are white, too. A door in the kitchen is next to a big window, and opens…
…to a petite back porch. The back steps and part of the railings are the same rust shade as the front steps. A Bilco door swings open for access to the unfinished basement.
This bedroom has the same utilitarian carpeting as the living room, but it also has a lot of neat little built-in storage cabinets. We bet that skinny cabinet hides an ironing board.
The second bedroom is similar to the first; the walls in both of them need a new coat or two of paint.
The full bath has a brown tub/shower combination with a hand shower; white wall tile; and avocado floor tile. Overall, we’d update this room if we could.
The house measures 886 square feet, perfect for downsizing or a starter home. It sits on a 0.16-acre lot that includes this detached, two-car garage. You can walk to Cantine Field’s recreation fields from here, and it’s a two-minute drive to Main Street and Partition Street for shops and restaurants like Miss Lucy’s Kitchen.
