Why we have a crush on this property

If you haven’t flipped through the pages of the book, then you’ve seen the posts on Instagram: “Cabin Porn,” as it’s called, is a scrapbook of sorts, highlighting handmade homes all over the world. The collection of warm and cozy images does a pretttty good job of making you want to move to a cabin in the woods. But cabin die-hards, take note: the house that inspired the creators of Cabin Porn to go all in on cabins is now on the market.

The main house on the 53-acre property in upstate New York is called Beaver Brook, and it’s a modern marvel — the timber-frame abode flaunts a steel roof and radiant concrete floors. Inside, a stunning open-concept living area is bathed in sunlight by floor-to-ceiling windows. Around the corner, there’s an airy kitchen with open shelving and new appliances. Five bedrooms with exposed beams and knotty hardwoods, meanwhile, add to the place’s homey charm.

Two fireplaces, one inside and one outside, can be found in the main house, but the best indoor-outdoor connection lies on the lower level. There, a glass accordion door opens directly to the surrounding woods, toward a stream where there’s a wood-fired sauna and a bridge that brings you to Beaver Brook itself.

There are three other smaller cabins on the land, too. They’re all architect-designed, off-the-grid creations. One is a steel-and-glass construction that resembles a tree house; another is a post-and-beam abode near the creek.
