A Fairy Tale-Come-True in Woodstock, NY, $819K

Prepare to be enchanted by this Woodstock Craftsman cottage…

The arched red front door says it all: This house is straight out of a storybook. Built in the 1920s, it’s a Storybook-style home, which drew elements from Tudor and English Cottage styles but with several heaping dollops of whimsy. Remember that Hobbit House in Patterson we featured a few weeks back? Also a Storybook-style house.

Situated minutes from Woodstock village in Ulster County, the home’s packed with details like stucco walls, half-timbering, stonework, iron hardware, and brick living from fireplace. While these features make the 2,691-square-foot interior look rustic and old-fashioned, according to the listing, the current owners did extensive remodeling that includes new roof and and a system that allows you to turn on and off the lights, set thermostats, lock and unlock doors, view doorbells and cameras, and get smoke and CO2 alerts on your phone. That’s one decked-out fairytale cottage!

The kitchen comes with butcher block counters, basin sink, and access to an outdoor dining area for fun summertime gatherings…

…and on the second floor, there are two bedrooms with access to a large open room that could be a media, play, or craft room. The master bedroom includes an en suite with soaking tub.

All common areas offer entry onto the outside patio and garden. The massive mud room allows everyone a place to come in and drop their gear before messing up the inside of your meticulously-maintained country house.

The magical property is situated minutes from the center of Woodstock village and just on the outskirts of the original Byrdcliffe Arts Colony, which operates a theater and gallery and holds shows, exhibitions, workshops, live music, and an artists-in-residence program.

(Oh, and just in case there’s any sort of confusion, Woodstock village in Ulster County is not where the Woodstock music festival took place in 1969. If you want to see that location, it’s about 90 minutes away from Woodstock village in Bethel, Sullivan County.)
