ranch home

This Franklin Ranch home is bigger on the inside than you think, while the outside is a lush oasis situated just a few minutes south of Oneonta, NY. 

Nestled amongst the hills and valleys of northwestern Delaware County sits this little cutie, priced perfectly for a buyer in search of an affordable country retreat. From Highway 28, it looks like an unassuming blue Ranch rambler, but a peek inside reveals a whimsical bungalow packed with appeal.

We love the bringing-the-outside-inside vibe to this 1,660-square-foot, 1970s-built cottage, including the spacious sun room with wood stove, which opens into the great room through sliding glass doors.

And, no great room is truly great unless it has a kitchen that’s open to the rest of the space. This kitchen is new, with a wrap-around counter top and lots of storage…

…with plenty of adjacent room to create a roomy dining area.

The front sun room also opens to the master suite…

…completely with a renovated bath with slate walls and a walk-in shower with two rainfall shower heads.

In addition to the master bedroom, there are two more bedrooms, plus another half-bath…

…and, the 5.2-acre lot is populated by perennials gardens, shrubs, two ponds, and plenty of secret places to wander under the trees and appreciate the quiet country setting.

If you’re longing for an Upstate NY retreat and don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for it, there is certainly potential here. Even if living in the bungalow isn’t exactly your cup of tea for the long-term, you could investigate the local zoning requirements and possibility build a new forever home on the property.
