Whatever you do, though, do not dilly-dally if you want to make an offer on this Saugerties cottage next door to a nature preserve.

Someone’s made an offer on this half-acre property on the Esopus Creek, just south of Saugerties village, but there might be chance to land it, if you make an offer that can’t be refused. We can understand its appeal: Situated across the road from the shoreline, this 630-square-foot bungalow does not stand alone on its little plot of land. There’s also a detached shed on the property that could be renovated into a home office or studio space.

Packing quite a punch in a tiny package, the single-bedroom living quarters are more spacious than they appear from the outside, with an enclosed front porch (stained glass windows included) that’s open to the living room.

Things won’t feel cramped in the kitchen with farmhouse sink and access to the backyard.

Cozy up at night in the bedroom…

…and, when you wake up, take your Underwood into the 11.5-by-19 shed, which you’ve made over into your own mini-writer’s cottage. The air conditioning unit and heater lead us to believe that the space might have electric.

Frequent breaks are required when engaging in any creative pursuit, so, when weather permits, make time to take dip in the Esopus from your own piece of creek frontage, or take the kayak or canoe out for a paddle through the early morning mist. Fall and winter provide plenty of variation in your creek views.

Saugerties village is located 1.5 miles from here.
