This charming Shandaken cottage is more than just a hipster cabin-in-the-woods; the 3.2-acre property comes with its own dramatic update. 

The bungalow itself, however, is an excellent place to start. Originally built in the swingin’ 1960s, this two-bed, one-bath bungalow has undergone a total renovation, essentially transforming it into a brand-new home.

You might be surprised to hear that the interior is only 810 square feet in size. It avoids feeling cramped thanks to an open-concept living room/eat-in kitchen, and a wood stove insert in the existing fireplace keeps it all cozy in the wintertime. New features include electric, plumbing, windows, floors, structural work, baseboard heating, Nest thermostat, and insulation, just to name a few.

…while overlooking this magical slice of paradise. You see, the current owners transformed a portion of the property from marshland into a dry field by adding copious drainage. Now, a firepit resides there…

…and, when you need to cool down, wade into Birch Creek and let the crystalline waters of the Catskill Mountain refresh you.
