Description for 5948 E Handsome Brook Road, Franklin, NY 13775
Pulled from the pages of a modern design magazine, this over-sized cabin-in-the-woods is a dream hipster getaway. Keep it all for yourself, or AirBnB it to recover your investment. With 2 bedrooms, and an additional partially finished studio / guest house for your guests, this cool pad is an ideal location that will help adjust any urban-crazed attitude. Ultra-private with 2 ponds, flag-stone patio, deck, yard and woods loaded with wild delicious ramps every spring, you'll find it hard to head back to the city Sunday night! The main bedroom feels like being in a tree-house with glass and skylights and high in the trees -- you'll love the summer evenings here. Entertaining is easy with sliding-glass doors from the kitchen area and from the family room that open onto a flag-stone patio. The stone-work-walk leads to the partially finished studio/guest house which could easily double as a seasonal living space (has electric, but not heated). The wood stove is ideally situated next to the kitchen and family room, where it can warm the entire house. Even the coldest nights will be toasty. Enjoy your favorite wine and great book, or work on that novel you've been putting off. This is certainly the space to find great inspiration. The charming bathroom is complete with clawfoot tub and authentic enameled steel sink. The simple kitchen is serviceable and can be updated to suit your own taste. You'll easily increase the value of your investment. Improvements include new French-drains all the way around the foundation (2013), a new roof (2008), reclaimed barn-wood floors, a new oil tank and recent electric hot water heater (2014), and a new well-pump (2015). A storage barn in the lower yard, closer to the road and ponds, has 2 sets of large doors to easily accept your tractor, snowmobiles, ATVs or other toys. If you're looking for a great retreat, week-end getaway or even full-time hide-away, this could be the space you've been looking for. There is even the start of a mini-Stormking in the front yard with striking stone sculptures- you'll just have to come have a look for yourself. This property is priced as-is and will not sit long on the market!
