Situated right between the Twin Lakes in Columbia County, this little cottage has its own private lake access, is close to some of the most beloved towns and hamlets upstate, and has plenty of potential! Plus, at just 1 hr 40 mins north of NYC – or 20 mins to Amtrak – it’s easy to enjoy! Laid out across one level, the home has an easy flow and plenty of natural light. The living area offers a gas stove and a picture window that provides a seasonal lake view. The kitchen, which looks out into the living area, has great space and storage plus direct access to the backyard. Both bedrooms are spacious and share the home's full bath. The home sits on 0.84 acres, a large lot for this cute lake community. The backyard is a great place to bring your imagination given its size and privacy from the road. Additionally, the property extends on a path between the neighbors and a little wooded area to provide direct access to the peaceful, non-motorboat lake, where there’s a floating platform. Imagine evenings spent on the lakeside deck or taking a kayak out for a paddle! In addition to being among quiet rolling hills in a location that draws triathletes to train at the lake, the outdoor enjoyment continues with Poets Walk (17 mins), Taconic State Park (30 mins), Bash Bish State Park (33 mins), and Catamount Mountain Resort ? (35 mins). 11 mins to Red Hook, 12 to Tivoli, 15 to Germantown, 21 to Rhinebeck, 22 to Hudson/Amtrak, and 26 to Rhinecliff/Amtrak. Only 1hr 40mins to/from NYC! Note: The home was completely remodeled in 2017-2018, including all new mechanicals. However, due to pet damage from previous tenants, the floors will likely need to be replaced.
