A Soothing Retreat in the Woods of Accord, NY, $349K

Stressed out? We suggest taking a tour of this calming Minimalist cottage on 10 acres of land…

Inspired by the tatami rooms of Japan, this two-bedroom cabin is restrained in its design elements, simple in its style. Fun Fact: According to the listing, not one nail was used in the home’s initial construction, nor metal hammers to put it together. We can feel the stress melting away already!

The 1,524-square-foot interior features shoji screens on sliders for defused natural light, along with living room stove, vaulting ceiling, and a mix of tile floors and tatami mats. Muted earth-tones create a sense of tranquility throughout.

Cook to your heart’s content with butcher block countertops, high-end range, Bosch dishwasher, and plenty of storage under the counter and in shelves to keep the kitchen neat-as-a-pin.

Feel free to scream “SERENITY NOW!” on the property. It’s 10 acres in size and situated in the Catskill Mountain town of Accord, so it’s unlikely anyone will hear you. Check out the sun-dappled, lush yard…

Are you tempted by the idea of a house with lots of land? We’re featuring them all week here on Upstater, properties like this one, and this one. Stay tuned for more in the coming days!
