We’ll still looking at places around the Shawangunk Ridge in Ulster County, which brings us to Ellenville today. If you skip over those one-story Ranch homes in the listings, sometimes you’ll miss a mid-mod gem, so we always make sure to look. Here’s one that’s been on the market seemingly forever, which was curious to us because the price isn’t bad, the house itself is pretty huge (over 3,000 square feet despite looking much smaller from the outside), and while it isn’t a pitch-perfect mid-mod, it has enough of those elements to deserve a second glance. Here’s what we like: The entryway leading into a big living room with floor to ceiling windows. The kitchen. Even some of the wood siding works for us. The tile floors. The flow of it all. What we don’t like: The taxes. They are baffling. There’s a pretty big discrepancy between the agent’s listed tax fee and what we discovered elsewhere, but it’s still in the five-figure territory, and for a 3,000 square foot Ranch on less than a half-acre priced around $250,000, that’s just too much.
