This two-bedroom Mongaup Valley farmhouse just west of Monticello, NY comes with a red barn, a half-acre lot, and a whimsical flair.  

The listing says that it’s been recently-renovated and used as a short-term rental property, and you could keep it going as such. However, the listing price makes it a good bet as a first-home, too, and comes with a manageable property tax bill that will make it even more attainable for a first-timer. Either way, this c.1885 farmhouse is cute as a button…

…and gets even cuter within the 900-square-foot interior. The hand-painted plank floors are the obvious focal point, but whitewashed walls and exposed beams help lay on the charm pretty thick.

There’s a bedroom on the first floor, as well as a second level that could be its own bedroom unto itself. Currently, it’s divided up into two sleeping areas, suitable for short-term rental sleeping arrangements but not as a general practice for full-time life.

You could always renovate the red barn that comes included and turn it into a guest cottage, rental, studio, or live/work space…

…all of which is situated in the Sullivan County, NY hamlet of Mongaup Valley, about 5 miles west of Monticello and less than two-hours’ drive from NYC.
