This week, we’re exploring Phoenicia, a hamlet in the town of Shandaken that’s close to High Peaks hiking and the Ashokan Reservoir and Rail Trail, and is home to a solid foundation in the arts including the Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice.
This pretty-in-pink abode was built in 1933 and has three bedrooms, two baths, and an attached studio.
Enter the front door into a dining room lit with triple windows and graced with the original hardwood floor.
The central staircase has a twin set of three steps up to a landing that separates the dining room from the living room.
The living room has a handsome wood fireplace surround; hardwood floors; and a wide pass-through into the kitchen…
…which has been updated with granite countertops over white-painted lower cabinets. The upper cabinets are a contrasting shade of gray.
The 1,914-square-foot house has three bedrooms upstairs. This one has two big windows that—along with the light caramel paint color on the walls—brighten the room.
This bedroom is smaller, and has a smaller pair of windows. But there’s a neat built-in bookshelf, and a cool gray-and-white color scheme that complements the hardwood floors.
The third bedroom is bigger and painted in a soft blue.
The listing says there are two full baths, but only this one—with a hardwood floor, tub/shower combination that could use an update, and a small vanity—is pictured.
Perhaps the second bath is tucked into this studio, which is attached to the side of the house and has its own entrance.
It’s got a full kitchen, fireplace, peaked ceiling, and a Palladian window…
…that overlooks the nearly half-acre yard that borders a stream.
