Having an immediate crush on this property is not a tough feeling, but contrary! You see this red house brightly standing in the middle of a sleepy, snow-covered slope tucked beside HoliMont Ski Resort in Ellicottville, N.Y. A bold statement has been done just by looking at the vermilion paneling but the even bolder statement makes the home’s interior that we are about to see.
First impressions – it’s all 70s vibes in the very best way! You can spot the matching brown refrigerator and the oven in the kitchen to the retro yellow-glass pendant light over the dinner table and the red tile floors. The grooviness of the house simply throwbacks us to the times of turtlenecks and bell bottoms. Isn’t that pretty much joyful?
Now let’s get on to the house little tour; there are five bedrooms and three full bathrooms that make the place roomy enough to host the perfect winter 70s dinner party on your favorite weekend. And on quieter nights when you wish to have this space just for yourself and your energy, after a long day of skiing there is a cozy spot to curl up with some warm cocoa. Have we mentioned that the cross country trails are walkable from the front door?
Some practical updates have been made to the impressive house space, like a new metal roof. This house is the proof itself that all those trendy renovations aren’t always what can make a house feel like home. Imagine if this little ski chalet had marble countertops and a subway-tiled bathroom? The magic would have been lost to the retro warm charm that brings.
