For the same price as a modest Manhattan apartment, this adorable 18th century Connecticut cottage could be yours. The cedar-sided home was constructed in 1755 in the town of Clinton, at 11 Pearl Street. More recently, the interior got a full renovation, meaning that the inside is surprisingly modern. Best yet, its located in a quaint town just outside of New York Side, and is only a five minute walk to the MetroNorth Railroad. Sounds appealing? It’s hit the market for $360,000.

The freestanding, two-story home comes with a little bit of land and a cute backyard. There’s also a small barn in the backyard that’s likely larger than many Manhattan studios.

Inside, you’ve got two bedrooms and one bathroom over 1,313 square feet. While the interior has been modernized, the living room retains the original fireplace and boasts a very cozy, rustic cabin aesthetic.

The dedicated dining room was opened up, with soaring ceilings that reveal the wooden framework of the house.

The kitchen is particularly impressive–and a far cry from what any kitchen looked like in 1799. It’s been decked out with high end stainless steel appliances, marble countertops and a breakfast bar.

The master suite is located on the first floor and has two large closets as well as a sliding door out onto the patio. The master bathroom also has its own clawfoot tub.

There’s a second bedroom upstairs, as well as a “bonus room” that could be transformed into an office, dressing room or nursery. Overall these are lovely, historic digs boasting quite the impressive modern renovation–check out the gallery for more interior shots.
