A charming cottage on the edge of Cold Spring can be yours for $397,500. What the two-bedroom, one-bath home at 337 Main Street lacks in space it makes up in character. Constructed in 1890, the saltbox home features wide-planked floorboards, built-in shelves, and a reading nook. Plus, the property includes a large fenced-in backyard with a fire pit, outdoor deck, and a unique barrel sauna.

As reported by Brownstoner, the home appears to have been built as a worker’s house in the late 19th century with a simple design and layout. Just 720 square feet, the cottage’s living room, dining room, and kitchen sit on the lower level with the two bedrooms under the sloped ceilings of the second floor.

While the kitchen may need some modernization, there are stainless steel appliances, an innovative wooden pegboard for extra storage, and plenty of natural light. A separate dining room features two windows and convenient built-in shelves.

The two decently-sized bedrooms feature wide plank wood floors and sloped ceilings. A cute nook outside of the bathroom could serve as a reading corner or spot for a vanity, according to the listing.

There’s a spacious walk-out basement currently used as workshop-type space but could be flexible to the new owner’s needs. The property features a large backyard, a deck, fire pit, hammock area, and an outdoor barrel sauna.

Located just one mile from the Cold Spring Metro-North station and about 50 miles from Manhattan, the home is the “perfect sanctuary from the city or a starter home for someone ready to embrace the country,” as the listing describes. The home is just a five-minute drive from scenic downtown on the Hudson River waterfront and is even closer to the 7,400-acre Hudson Highlands State Park.
