Highland Lake Access and a Guest Cottage? Yes, for $495K

  |  March 21, 2023

Today we are in Highland Lake, a hamlet in Sullivan County.

This three-bedroom home is vintage 1920s, but has been renovated and is move-in ready. The exterior is low-maintenance vinyl siding.

The entrance opens into this enclosed porch/sunroom, finished with a peaked ceiling and a hardwood floor.

From there, a French door opens into a beautifully finished living room with another gleaming wood floor, an umber-toned accent wall, and a live-edge wood shelf running the width of the wall opposite the accent wall. Recessed lighting illuminates a lot of the rooms in this home.

This is the other end of the living room, which would be perfect for a reading nook or kids’ play area.

The dining room/kitchen space is just past the living room. It’s got paneled chair-rail wainscoting in a light gray shade.

A breakfast bar is long and lean, with a quartz countertop.

That counter continues in a U shape throughout the kitchen, which has white, Shaker-style lower cabinets and black shelves up top.

This little room is off the kitchen. It could be a breakfast room or an office.

The half-bath has a quartz counter and raw wood wainscoting that matches the vanity. Geometric, black-and-white tile fills the floor.

This laundry room off the kitchen has a dark wood floor and what looks like painted-brick walls. It’s also got lots of light from big windows.

Galvanized sheets run down a corridor off the laundry room to a back foyer with the same tile as the bathroom, leading to a back door.

Back inside, though, head up these stairs in the kitchen to reach the top floor.

There are three bedrooms up here.

They’re all basically the same…

Light-colored walls, gleamy wood floor, good-sized windows.

They share this gray-walled bathroom that has a modern, blackish-brown-and-white vanity.

The walk-in shower is sheathed in a half-wall of glass and has a shiny, white rainfall-patterned accent wall between two opposing black walls.

The house sits on six acres that includes a garage, shed, and this library/guest cottage. A walk across the street and through a little woods gets you onto Highland Lake (access rights are deeded with the house).
