The proceeds from the sale of this Pawling log cabin – featuring a drop-dead-gorgeous renovation – will go toward a charity, according to the listing. 

More specifically, they will go toward the Face-to-Face Project, a charity that helps impoverished communities grow gardens in Malawi and Cambodia. So, if you’re looking to make a big donation and get a very cool house in the process, this is your chance.

Now, let’s get back to the “very cool house” part of this charitable donation: For starters, the Craftsman-style lodge was once journalist Edward R. Murrow’s vacation home, made reference to in this New Yorker article from 1953. The five-bedroom, 2,700-square-foot cabin originally dates back to 1940, but its renovation makes it all modern and new, with walls of glass, refinished floors, and 2.5 spa-like baths.

The kitchen’s been given a complete overhaul, too, with hip shiplap walls, skylights, new appliances, brick-style subway tile backsplash, and a charming little breakfast banquet.

The home’s room’s offer both rustic knotty-pine, as well as clean, cotton-white surroundings, comfortable and bathed in light with built-in storage, cathedral ceilings, and new fixtures. You might find yourself in a bit of a rush to bid the family “good night, and good luck” just so you can crawl into bed at night…

…and, the 16.43-acre property comes with a huge stone patio with built-in firepit and distinctive rock formation, as well as swathes of rolling grassy open space, fringed with trees. Do we see a small golf course in the distance over there?

Situated about five miles northeast for Pawling village in eastern Dutchess County, NY, just minutes from the Connecticut border.
