Geothermal A-Frame in Otsego County, NY, $290K

  |  June 17, 2021

For less than $300k, this Schenevus Contemporary house offers a lot of bang for your buck, including some recent interior improvements.

The listing states that this 1970s A-Frame is being sold “as-is,” but things don’t look half bad around the exterior, which sports a wrap-around porch…

…or the 1,740-square-foot interior, where the great room comes with parquet floors, high ceilings, and a wood stove surrounded by floor-to-ceiling stone. Sure, the kitchen could use some updated appliances…

…and maybe some new paint and light fixtures in the other rooms. However, the house does come with updates, including a new geothermal heating and cooling system, new septic, new roof, and new insulation.

But, the primary bedroom on the main floor looks comfy with cherry floors and high ceilings…

…and the custom-tiled bathroom includes dual sinks, a pantry, and, oddly, its own exit onto the wrap-around porch.

On the lower level is a light-filled artist studio with a wood stove (currently disconnected and non-functioning but could be made to work again)…

…and, in the basement are the other two bedrooms and the laundry room.

Here’s the kicker, though: The house sits on over 50 acres of land with its own pond, situated about 15 miles south of Cooperstown, and the same distance east of Oneonta, NY. If it seems too far away from it all, just remember that this kind of privacy and the amount of land that comes with the property can’t be found at this listing price the closer you get to the Catskills. For those rare bargains, best to look in Ostego County and environs.
