Greene County Pick of the Week: 1930s Cottage in Jewett for under $179,000

This pretty little Jewett cottage has some pretty, unexpected detail. I love the exterior stone fence and interior stone fireplace. The substantial woodwork and arched ceiling give this little house a nice Hobbit-y feeling. Jewett is a fairly sprawling place, without a town center but with a ton of protected land. Think bears in the backyard rather than charming B and Bs, though Jewett is an easy drive to the ski towns of Hunter and Windham.

The house itself is small—and that kitchen looks tight—-but it comes with three acres of land. Worth sharing one tiny bathroom for? Perhaps if you factor in those great Catskills views.

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. Read the rest of this entry
