Friday evenings are meant for relaxation, and this house in Eldred, Sullivan County, would be a perfect spot to kick back—once a major overhaul is done inside.
You’ll have to take our word for it: This as-is property doesn’t even have interior photos in the listing. But the outside is darn cute, with blue siding, a brick chimney, a picture window, and built-in benches flanking the front door.
The house has two bedrooms and two baths in 1,226 square feet. Set amid dappled sunlight from its woodsy setting, it could be a charming place. Sliding glass doors open onto a large deck that could use some work.
This long set of steps goes down to Montgomery Lake, a private lake that offers fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and swimming.
The property totals a quarter of an acre, and it’s about 17 minutes from a delicious dinner at The Homestead Restaurant on the grounds of The Eldred Preserve (and stick around after dinner for entertaining cabaret!). Plus, it’s about a two-hour drive from here to Manhattan.
