Unattainable Tiny House in Ghent, NY, $550K

This modern Minimalist cottage in Columbia County, NY proves that you can pack a lot of luxury into a 1,000-square-foot space. 

The listing calls it “Minimalist”, a term we’re using almost tongue-in-cheek here, because dropping a cool half-mill on what is basically a smaller version of a luxury loft is a concept that seems hardly “minimalist” to us. However, here in 2021, Minimalism is less a life philosophy and more of a stylistic choice, so, with that in mind, let’s take a look at all the cool stuff that comes with this Minimalist cottage…

The jet-black exterior cuts a fine figure against the snowy climes of rural Columbia County, NY, like James Bond wearing a black snow suit while astride a black snowmobile, speeding away from nefarious henchmen.

Inside, the just-built, 1,000-square-foot layout is simple, consisting of an open great room with a wall of glass and a knock-out kitchen equipped with high-end stainless steel appliances like a Miele range. Those concrete floors might look cold and uninviting, but they’re heated so ditch the slippers.

…and, for outdoor gatherings, the deck will do just fine. Or, wander farther onto the 1.6-acre property for a late-night firepit. If you’re considering purchasing this property to use as a short-term rental, guests will appreciate that Art Omi, an open-air sculpture park spread out over 120 acres, is practically next door. Also nearby is the city of Hudson, as well as the cute hamlets of Claverack and Kinderhook. While the look of this cottage might be considered “Minimalist,” its offerings are quite lush, indeed.
