  |  June 24, 2021

Here’s an Oneonta Colonial that mixes hints of 1960s-suburban with forest-retreat, a combination that works surprisingly well. 

Whether you want to eat a Swanson’s TV dinner in front of The Man From U.N.C.L.E, or go off wandering the woods like a forest sprite, we found your house. It sits on 4.14 acres of near-seclusion just a few miles north of Oneonta, NY, and it features a mid-century sensibility that will send you back in time.

The Dutch Colonial built in 1966 includes a bright living room with wood floors and a working field stone fireplace adorned with reclaimed wood mantel. There’s even more reclaimed wood in the exposed ceiling beams, which add some rustic charm to the 1,964-square-foot interior.

Likewise, the sizable kitchen offers its own charms, like original cabinetry and a vintage wood stove…

…while, up on the second floor, all the bedrooms come with closet space and storage.

Check out the primary suite’s half-bath, complete with a beaded curtain door. It’s pretty groovy, but we would definitely remove the carpeting.

There’s also a full, half-finished basement with a sauna and showers in need of repairs. What doesn’t need repair, on the other hand, are a myriad of recent updates, including the roof, windows, septic tank, oil tank, furnace, and water filtration system.


As for the location, lovers of seclusion are going to feel mighty comfy in these surroundings, with the nearest neighbor tucked-away behind a backyard full of trees. The small city/college town of Oneonta is less than five miles away, just in case you occasionally crave civilization.
