Need a big house for a small price? Head up to rural Columbia County, NY for this Shaker farmhouse on an acre of land. 

We’re getting cozy with the Berkshires this week on Upstater, while still sitting tight in New York State. This c.1940s country home New Lebanon will put you about a 20 minutes’ drive from Jiminy Peak in western New England, as well as the Albany/Capital District, with the Hudson River city of Hudson, NY about 40 minutes from here.

Home-sweet-home starts with an enclosed porch/mud room for storage or other more aesthetically-pleasing uses…

Love to garden and landscape? Have it on this property, then sit back and admire your handywork from the deck (which looks like it could use some reinforcing and a new coat of paint).
