Fully Renovated 2-bed Cottage in the Manor, $319K

  |  April 12, 2022

Act quickly to grab this two-bedroom jewel in Livingston Manor for less than $320,000.

Built in 1925, this cute little (912-square-feet) cottage probably started life as a hunter’s haven. Renovations have maintained its beautiful Craftsman bones (a roomy front porch, French doors, hardwood floors, wide-silled windows) while adding modern elements that provide pizzazz. And there’s a 420-square-foot studio above the two-car garage!

Climb the porch steps and enter into an open-concept living/kitchen area, with a Morso woodstove and the darn near cutest dinette set ever.

I mean, look at it: Eames-style aqua chairs and a lush white banquette under a firecracker of a Design Within Reach chandelier….

…and a sleek kitchen with black walnut butcher-block countertops, Fischer Paykel stainless dishwasher and French-door refrigerator, electric range, double sink, and nice cabinetry. Behind those wooden French doors is a laundry room with lots of storage.

There’s just one bedroom in this house (the second is in the barn/studio), but it’s spacious and bright, with a bay window and a striking William Morris-wallpapered wall.

The full bathroom (yes, there’s just one on the entire property) has a spare, Danish-modern look to it.

If you head back to the living room, you’ll notice there’s another space off the main entry (on the right in the photo below).

It’s a cozy den, perfect for reading and/or listening to vinyl.

Head back outside to the barn/studio for a nice surprise:

A huge studio/bedroom/yoga space!!

I defy you to not write the Great American Novel with a setup and views like this.

The property totals just under a half-acre, with swaying pines and pretty views. Does this cottage that epitomizes cute (oh, and look! A hot tub!) appeal to you? Find out more about 80 Dubois Street, Livingston Manor, from Matthew J. Freda Real Estate Inc.
