If you’re into the ski chalet-style, this pared-down version of it might interest you. It’s on five acres, at the end of a dead-end street, has a nice garden in progress and an open feel that seems appealing. Looks a little worse for wear, or maybe just kind of 80s-ish — too crammed with stuff — but nothing deal-killing. I like that it has a rain water collection system — a must for me in my future upstate home — and a pond, and I can imagine it being a great getaway for a writer or someone else who craves weekend solitude and doesn’t need more than one bathroom. FWIW, it was last assessed at $158,000 according to Property Shark, but we’ve found it pretty common that Delaware County properties are assessed at far below asking price. Stats on the jump.
