Potenial Cottagecore Dream in the Catskills, $49K

  |  October 29, 2021

We’re getting some seriously witchy vibes from this old schoolhouse dating back to the turn-of-the-century, and we love it!

For less than $50K, you can expect to have to do some work on this wee shingle-sided cottage up in Delaware County, NY, and, indeed, you will. However, the raw materials are almost irresistable, especially if you’ve got an imagination and a burning desire to embrace cottagecore.

For the uninitiated, “cottagecore” is an aesthetic propensity toward a romanticized version of a rustic lifestyle in harmony with nature, often involving floral patterns, delicate tea sets, Wellies worn with skirts, and lots of gardening. This as-is property with mountain views is the perfect way to get you started on the path to true cottagecore for a rock-bottom price.

Formerly a one-room schoolhouse, the cottage 630-square-foot interior is just big enough for you and your familiars cats, with a main level plus a loft sleeping area…

…accessible by this crazy staircase/ladder hybrid that seems dangerous in the dark, but who are we to judge your witchy ways?

Out in the yard, there’s more work to be done with the silo, which is currently a chicken coop, as well as a former outhouse/toolshed. Do some brush cutting to make a garden to fill with flowers, veggies, and, of course, medicinal herbs.

From the covered front porch, enjoy the Catskill Mountain views with your morning brew while you bask in your new cottagecore lifestyle just minutes from the historic villages of Hobart and Stamford.
