Small, Yet Ever-So Sophisticated (and PENDING) in Accord, NY, $285K

  |  August 27, 2018

If you love this Ulster County mini-retreat…well, you’re not the only one…

The listing classifies it as “pending – continue to show,” so , while someone’s already made a bid on it, we’re still going show you around this breathtaking mini-compound. Comprised of three small buildings on a half-acre lot, the property was once a one-room school house built in 1899, which has since been transformed into a 946-square-foot main house with office and studio, as well as a bedroom, kitchen, bath, and screened-in porch. The other two bungalows on the property could be offices, art studios, or extra sleeping quarters.

All three buildings are hooked up with air-conditioning, heat, and wifi, and while the buildings aren’t connected, they share a common courtyard. The entire property is surrounded by a landscaped yard with stream and koi pond. Sounds downright Zen-like.

Keep this tiny retreat tidy by making use of the outside shower after returning home from playing in the woods…
