This charming cedar shingled cottage sited on 1.8 private acres, just minutes from Hillsdale Center, 15 mins to Great Barrington,& 25 to Hudson's Amtrak/Warren St historic district, offers everything you'd want in a private get-a-way retreat and more. The 1st level features an open concept floor plan, wood-burning stove and lots of windows letting in the sunlight/views of the slopping lawn, gardens, owner planted throughout the entire property many years ago now mature/flowering everywhere. A true gardener's paradise! Just off the kitchen you'll find a wood deck where you can take in the breathtaking sunsets over the Catskill Mountains in the distance. The kitchen while small, has a dishwasher, lots of storage and soapstone counter tops. The two bedrooms are on the upper floor w/an updated bath & laundry closet for convenience. While the house is beautifully styled, it's all about the outside setting! If inclined, the raised vegetable beds, massive blueberry, strawberry and raspberry bushes, are ready for a new owner(s) to immediately use their green thumb! There's a 2nd building (not included in the square footage) with french doors over looking an amazing blue stone patio and just below it would be the perfect location for a pool! The garage/studio could possibly be converted into a small guest cottage. Come take a look at this meticulously styled home, I promise you won't be disappointed. (note: house is current empty, photos were taken when property was occupied by the owner).
