Rosendale Cottage, $265,000


I’m not sure what zooming in on the photos already in the listing gets you, but here’s a video for a charming and affordable-ish little property in Rosendale. The lot is small–just over half an acre–but surrounded by trees and private-ish. And it’s only two beds, but there’s a separate, heated studio building. The place is lovingly refurbished in a manor that is so appealing to me–not overly countrified nor overly modernized. I’ve been down Sawdust Road (otherwise known as County Road 26) and it’s not terribly busy, although as I recall no sidewalk, and not walkable to downtown Rosendale–something I’d want since the downtown is part of the draw to buying here. Looks like it’s been on the market for at least 160 days, so might be negotiable. Worth a look if Rosendale is on your short list–it’s on mine. Stats on the jump.

  1. Hey, great website!
    I saw this place and agree it’s in nice shape. There is an outbuilding that with some finishing could serve as extra living space…

  2. Love the exposed beams and the wide plank floors. Super renovation.
