For Sale in Amenia, NY

*The Willard Mack House* Once owned by the prolific early 20th century playwright Willard Mack, this wonderful cottage sits on the border with Kent, CT in Wassaic, NY. The current owner’s grandparents purchased the property, which includes 13+ acres and a barn across the road, in the 1920s as their summer home. The house has wood floors throughout, a fireplace in the living room, a dining room, kitchen with wood stove, family room, and a full bath on the first floor, two bedrooms and half bath upstairs as well as potential office space and many built-in bookcases. A screened porch opens off the living room. The plumbing, electric, and water lines have been updated in recent years, as well as the roof. The house has a storybook character, cozy when covered with snow, and glorious when fall brings autumn leaves and when spring blossoms appear. The land (in what used to be known as Chickadee Valley) is a bird lover's paradise and is bordered to the east by Kent Land Trust property. Bog Hollow Brook, which soon joins Macedonia Brook, flows past the barn, which has potential as a studio or a workspace. The property offers ample opportunity for gardeners and for those who wish to be close enough to restaurants, bookstores, and shops but return home to a hillside home filled with history and charm.
