Looking for a place to live happily ever after? We couldn’t have dreamt up a more picturesque home than this little beauty located in Ghent, New York. Described by its listing as “pure magic in a storybook setting,” this charmer comes with streams and ponds right at its doorstep and a wooden bridge to welcome guests home, and it’s surrounded by miles and miles of pristine woodlands to get lost in. Really, the only things missing here are Golidlocks and three bears!

The home was formerly an ice house for a neighboring farm, but was renovated into a countryside cottage by its most recent owners. Today, the exterior is outfitted in wood shingles and inside you’ll find a stone fireplace and chimney, wood beam ceiling, wood and stone floors and a bright and airy open floor plan. A wonderful gabled roof adds to the home’s charm, as does a wood-burning stove found in the kitchen. In total, there are three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 2,000 square feet to stretch out in.

This darling little retreat is currently listed for a mere $249,000 and would make for a perfect city escape, or even a primary residence. And incidentally, the lucky owner of this abode will also get to call this ultra-modernist home (also for sale), inspired by Philip Johnson’s Glass House, their neighbor. Who would have imagined Ghent to be so architecturally diverse?
