You will love to drive up the extremely picturesque country road to this 1935 renovated cottage - and you'll love even more to spend time in this light-filled home! The flow of the main floor is perfect for country living: a generous mud room with bluestone tile and a half bath leads to an eat-in kitchen opening out to a deck where you look out onto nothing but forest and a small seasonal stream. The owners removed the wall to the downstairs bedroom, creating an L-shaped open living area with seating in front of the wood stove as well as a tv nook next to the full bathroom around the corner. (This could, of course, easily be converted back to a separate bedroom.) Heading upstairs, skylights in the stairway and the full bathroom at the top of the stairs give a sense of light and airiness before you even reach the landing. The floor is divided between two decent-sized bedrooms with built-in closets under the eaves. The master has a door leading out to a generously sized deck overlooking the side yard and the forest. Although this is on one acre, the surrounding wooded lots are beautiful and you can only just see part of a vintage barn and silo through the trees in winter. There have been major improvements made to maximize the land as well, including taking down dangerous trees (part of why the light is so beautiful in the home now!), planting new ones, clearing land, and enclosing the property with a new split-rail wood fence. The owners made many improvements to the main house as well, from cosmetic work to more practical upgrades such as adding efficient lighting with Lutron dimmers, Nest security camera, new gutters, French drains, under-sink water filter, stove vent, etc. There is still an opportunity for future buyers to create value, possibly by converting the large garage into a studio or even, zoning permitted, a guest house. The location is a few minutes from the high-end, contemporary Brooklyn Heights Farm and Milan Case Study homes currently being develop
