Pine Plains “Mulberry Cottage,” $395,000

Does it help to name a house? Some would think so, and certainly calling this Pine Plains farmhouse Mulberry Cottage adds to its charm and distracts a bit from its address, right smack on Route 82 (admittedly a smaller road than nearby 22, so not by any means a deal breaker). The description really undersells it (or else they’re preparing you for disappointment). They call it a “small place in the country with potential for expansion and in good condition,” but it has four bedrooms, over 2,500 square feet and a pool. Taxes are a little more than $500/month. It’s about a three-minute drive or 20-minute walk to town, close to Stissing Pond. Personally, I’d paint over that wood paneling, but some might find that charming, as well. Stats on the jump.

  1. Yep, painting all that paneling white would make it look amazing! I always wonder about the pool thing, though. Seems so fab to have one in the summer, but wonder if winter upkeep makes it all not worth it?
