Pre-Revolutionary Cottage in Millbrook, $385,000

Sweet, yes? This Millbrook cottage has the low ceilings that are common in houses this age, and I don’t love the kitchen, but there’s an undeniable charm to this house. I think it had a 1980s or early 90s update, judging from the cabinets and the solarium tacked on. Good stuff: 11 acres, a stream, original cooking hearth, nice fireplace, built-ins. If you can handle the low ceilings, this one screams country house. Taxes are not outrageous at $3,207 a year (I’ve seen way higher) $10,885 a year (listed as much lower on Trulia, for some reason) nd it’s got a nice combo of feeling really rural but being only minutes from the village of Millbrook and the MetroNorth. Stats on the jump.

  1. taxes on the listing seem to be $10,885?
    very nice though

  2. Ah, you’re right–taxes listed much lower on Trulia! I’ll fix. Thanks.

  3. not to be a wise guy but “only minutes” to Metro North makes is sound like I could do it sleep walking. Thirty minutes is sort of what I am guessing. More of a haul if you ask me. Still minutes though.
