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.
