The $249,000 Book Barn
I haven’t been able to get the brokers for this very unusual property to fill me in on a few key details, like what’s the deal with the kitchen (no photo), but I’m posting it anyway, for those who desire a more literary retreat. It’s pretty much got one loft bedroom and a lot of open space, some 3,000 square feet of it. Unless you want a retreat for one, you’d need to do a little work to make it full-time inhabitable, including adding another bathroom and closing off a few walls for privacy. Seems to have lovely grounds, almost five acres, in the teeny tiny hamlet of South Kortright, near Stamford. The kicker: pretty far from the city for a country house, at least three hours and getting into central NY territory. Which is where real estate gets incredibly affordable, so I think this one could be had for even less. Stats on the jump.
