The idea of leaving New York City and relocating to the country to run a small business is so often fantasized about, it's almost a cliche. (Remember the classic 1980s movie Baby Boom starring Diane Keaton?) This house in Kinderhook, two hours and 45 minutes north of the city, may let someone turn those fantasies into reality.
The four-bedroom, two-bath house is located in the charming town center and has commercial space on the ground floor. It's listed at $360,000, appears to be in move-in condition, and features many charming, rustic details.
Take, for example, the hardwood floors, wood-framed entrances, and floral wallpaper:
And the built-in painted cabinets.
In the backyard where there is, of course, a garden.
At one point, the upstairs was divided into two apartments and if desired could be converted back, the listing says.
One of the two bathrooms has an old claw-foot tub.
A cozy sitting area upstairs would be perfect for a home office nook or just a place to relax and read.
The house also has a sizable porch and a wood-burning fireplace.
The ground-floor storefront is currently home to an antique store.
The town of Kinderhook is centrally located between Hudson, New York and Great Barrington, Massachusetts, both of which offer a wide variety of restaurants and opportunities to take in some culture.
