This Hunter Home is Too Cute: $529K

  |  November 20, 2023

The breeze is blowing chillier, the leaves are off the trees: It’s time to begin thinking about the upcoming winter. With that comes snow—a thrill for skiers and snowboarders up here. So this week, Upstater is looking at homes in Hunter, a skier’s haven.

Today’s pick is just south of the center of Hunter, and a 14-minute drive to the mountain. Newly renovated, the three-bedroom was originally built in 1956 and is cute as a button. The covered front porch and porte-cochere echo the siding’s tones of hunter-green with white accents.

The living room has a wall of wood paneling and an antler chandelier that scream “old-time cabin.” A breakfast bar is cut into the wall between the kitchen and living room.

An electric fireplace is flanked by slim casement windows; the fireplace wall is white with a live-edge wood hearth.

The kitchen isn’t huge, but it’s got great stainless-steel appliances including a high-end gas range with a steel hood. The white cabinets are laid out in a U-shape, topped with granite counters.

Two bedrooms are on the main floor. This one has a dark hardwood floor and white walls.

The second bedroom is a twin to the first.

That’s a stair railing, not a crib (at first glance, we were fooled). This is the third bedroom; it has a peaked ceiling, casement eyebrow windows in a dormer, and room for a pair of beds.

There are two full bathrooms. This one has marble on the floor that also climbs the walls of the tub/shower (concealed in this shot by the shower curtain).

The second bath has tan tile throughout, including in the shower stall.

A lean-to addition on the back of the house provides storage for mowers and other things. We’re loving those pine trees in the yard.

The property measures a half-acre, with pretty mountain views and opportunities to say hi to four-legged “neigh”bors.
