A piece of Woodstock can be yours for under $450,000

Rustic and charming Woodstock has been capturing the attention of Hamptonites looking for something a bit more relaxed lately, if Business Insider is to be believed. If you're among the entranced, or are just generally interested in a house upstate, you may want to consider this small, two-bedroom house, asking $449,000.

Unlike the Hamptons, Woodstock, which is about two hours and change from the city, is near many ski resorts, which means this particular house could transition nicely from a summer getaway to a winter retreat. The listing says that it's in the village, but set away from the more bustling main streets. For New Yorkers, that sounds like a win-win.

Built in 1920, the house's windows, electrical system and roof, have all been updated within the past 10 years. 

There are two living rooms downstairs, one of which has a vaulted veiling. The other has an old brick fireplace with a newer pellet stove insert. Also downstairs is a country kitchen and a laundry room.

Upstairs, there are two large bedrooms, and a bathroom with a claw foot tub.

If you're the type who likes to host guests, a little cottage in the property can be used as guest accommodations, or a studio or workshop. The cottage has one and a half bathrooms and two bedrooms, so it's a sizable New York City apartment all its own.

In between the two buildings, there's a garden and terrace area, and the outdoor space overlooks a stream.

According to the listing, the house could likely generate a rental income of about $2,500 a month if an investment property is what you had in mind. But considering how cute it is, you may not want to stay away for too long yourself.
