Abstract expressionist and surrealist artist, Hedda Sterne, built the house at 212 Hog Creek Road in Springs back in 1967. The three-building compound has just come on the market for $1,425,000.

Hedda Sterne was a Romanian-born American artist who lived to be 100 years old, passing away in 2011. The award-winning artist was a member of the New York School of painters and has had work on display in multiple museums.

The Springs house is a compact 1,000 square feet with just one bedroom and one bathroom—and admittedly, it needs some work.

We love the midcentury style gas fireplace, the hardwood floors, and the open floorplan, but it could use a face life to bring it up to date a bit. We’re particularly curious to see what new owners could do with the radiant heated sunroom with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the property.

In addition to the main house, there are two barns on the 1.36-acre property: One large barn from the 1900s that once served as a firehouse, and another smaller barn behind the cottage.
