This week on Upstater, we’ve been wandering through our favorite Catskills & Hudson Valley walkable towns and peering in at the residential real estate listings.
Beacon NY is today’s respite, where we’ll be featuring not one, but two homes in the Dutchess County city on the shores of the Hudson.
Our first stop is at 43 Vail Avenue, Beacon for this c.1890s Colonial with room to spare. Three bedrooms, three baths, and over 3000 square feet means there’s plenty of space for a family, and an open concept LR/K/DR gives it a convivial atmosphere. Includes original tin ceiling and built-ins.
The quarter-acre property comes with an insulated carriage house with A/C, radiant heat, on-demand water system, vaulted ceiling, bath with black walnut sliding doors and shelves, and glass shower with porcelain tile.
Its location is just a few blocks over from the Fishkill Creek, walking distance from Beacon’s many boutiques and restaurants, as well as local parks. Plan to commute via train? The Metro-North station is five minutes away by car. If you enjoy hiking, the Mt. Beacon trailhead is a five minute stroll from 43 Vail Avenue’s front door.
