This pretty cedar-sided home that wraps up our week of ranches is in the hamlet of Ruby in Ulster County.
The three-bedroom, two-bath home measures 1,336 square feet, and was built in 1981.
The entry has a square of carpet to match the wall-to-wall that continues into the living room, but it looks like there’s a bit of ceramic tile there.
The living room has a bay window, beamed ceiling, brick fireplace, and an alcove that begs for bookcases or built-ins.
Two doorways from here lead to the dining area and the kitchen, respectively.
The dining area is carpeted, too, and has sliders…
…out to a spacious deck overlooking the woods.
The kitchen has a white ceramic tile floor and a mix of Formica counters: white and butcher-blook. The cabinets have the dark wood and Early American hardware that was popular when the home was built. The range looks updated; the new homeowner might want to update the rest.
The primary bedroom has double closets and beige carved wall-to-wall carpeting.
The primary bath has been nicely updated, with a marble bath and glass walk-in shower and a white vanity with brass fixtures.
The home has two secondary bedrooms, too. This one has the same carpeting as the primary bedroom. It’s big enough for two twin beds.
This bedroom is the second one’s twin.
They share this basic-but-cute bathroom with a marble floor and medium-toned wood vanity.
The basement is finished and includes a family room and den/office, along with this two-car garage and workshop. The next owner should probably enjoy gardening, to maintain the 30-plus rose bushes and more than 35 blueberry bushes that also call this nearly-two-acre lot home. Bonus: It’s just 15 minutes from Woodstock!
