ARTISTS'S RETREAT ON 68 ACRES WITH 3-BR 2 BA RANCH, RENTAL COTTAGE & STUDIO NEAR COOPERSTOWN: This unique artist inspired property is a must see for buyers seeking something charming and wonderfully different. The short entry drive through the woods leads to a lovely landscaped compound including a 3 BR 2 BA contemporary ranch w/garage, a separate 1 bedroom 1 bath separate guest house or rental cottage, and a 2-room artist's studio. The 68 acre property has abundant road frontage for privacy and there is another clearing on the other side of the property which could easily accommodate another home site. There are also extensive trails throughout the property. MAIN HOUSE: You enter into a fully insulated and heated sunroom/porch with terracotta tile, extensive windows (and a woodstove), clapboard walls and beadboard ceiling, French doors lead into a blue tiled hall opening into the open plan living room/dining room kitchen area. These rooms are all appointed with thin red oak flooring, all trim and doors are solid pine. Attention to detail is everywhere. The kitchen is a work of art in itself--the owner and builder was a talented woodworker and the extensive cabinets and shelving as well as countertops are custom designed and executed. A hall off the living room leads to two generous bedrooms, one with its own bathroom, as well as an additional guest bathroom near the living room with ceramic tiled floors and a tub/shower. There is a third bedroom/den off of the entry hall with a wide door entry. GUEST COTTAGE: Surrounded by lush gardens, this rustic structure works as a comfortable independently heated studio apartment, with a great room doubling as a bedroom/living room and partial kitchenette at one end, and a large bathroom w/laundry facility. ARTIST STUDIO: This 2-room building was for decades the owner's painting studio, and the inspirational setting for her prolific works of art. It includes extensive shelving, high ceilings and filtered light, with a peaceful covered patio off the back room, featuring bucolic views of the private woodlands at the back of the property. ADDITIONAL DETAILS: With roughly 1500 feet of road frontage, there is a lovely meadow down the road on the property which once had a second home on it, and could be a second home site if desired. Also, as the property is less than 15 minutes from Cooperstown, there is great potential for rentals with any additional housing on the property.
This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
