Greene County Pick of the Week: Jewett Cottage for $225,000

This little Jewett cottage on five acres of land is rustic in the best sense. Sometimes too much exposed wood can make a place feel dark and close, but this one seems to struck the right balance of airy and cozy. (Sometimes white walls really are the best choice.) The house isn’t large and has only one bathroom, but with all that land, you’ve got room to expand.

The Jewett location doesn’t give you the name recognition of Windham or Hunter, but you’d be close enough to those ski resorts—about a ten minute drive–to get winter ski rentals. Stats and map on the jump.
