A Dash of 1950s Retro Flair Lives in this 1920s Hurley Cottage, $225,000

  |  November 30, 2016

Our celebration of houses built between 1910 and 1930 continues on with today’s offering: A c.1920s cottage built from an even older blacksmith’s house, which in turn was built in the 1700s. Wait, what?

Oh, and that’s not all. The current owners gave the interior the mid-century treatment with bold color choices (and we love the owner’s antique sign collection). Meanwhile, the home’s old-fashioned roots are proudly on display in the farmhouse plank flooring, hand-hewn ceiling beams, stone fireplace, recessed windows, and the requisite nooks/crannies that come with a very old house.

Includes 3 beds/2 baths, 1600 square feet, and new boiler and water heater. The fenced-in yard is a half-acre in size with a shed. Situated right in the center of Hurley hamlet, which has plenty of its own very old houses, many of the Dutch stone variety. Go check them out sometime.
