3br/1.5ba home on 1 acre available

A 4 minute drive to the Skidmore campus with not a single stoplight or stop sign in the way (or a pleasant 15 minute bike ride, past horse pastures) lies Muppet Manor. It's a 3 br 1.5 ba ranch style house with officially 1400 sq ft, but with a dry, cool, unheated concrete-floor basement which adds almost another 1000 sq ft for a studio, workshop, or project space.

Newly refinished wooden floors, architect-remodeled details, new fridge, new dishwasher, solar panels... and a swimming pool!

The acreage also has a grove of mature apple trees, with both modern and heirloom varieties and mature ornamental gardens that flower continuously from May to September. There's only one neighbor, from whom there's immense visual privacy - on the other two sides sits a conservation easement of hundreds of acres. Walk, bike, or XC ski out your back door!

Wildly improbable combination of rural retreat and proximity to campus. Lived and loved here for 9.5 years - now it's your turn.

$2500/mo. Available for Fall, perfect for incoming faculty. Showings available during June.
