Fancy a treehouse? Well, there aren’t too many of those on the market these days (or ever, much to our great disappointment), but this 700 square foot cottage in Lake Peekskill comes close. Propped up on stilts, the house seems to include a small enclosed porch area that juts out over the supports, looking out onto the sheer drop below. Scary? A little. Intriguing? A lot.
Clearly there’s a-whole-lotta work to be done on this adorable slip of a house. However, we love the location (end of a dead end street up on a hill, semi-secluded, and while it’s not directly on Lake Peekskill, the lake is a hop away), and we enjoy imaging this seasonal get-away-from-it-all bungalow with a snazzy renovation. Includes 1 bed/1 bath and a .18 acre lot. Located 15 minutes outside of Peekskill city. Bring your contractor.
