Timber-Lined Contemporary North of Cold Spring, $645K

Nestled against a picturesque pond, this Cold Spring Contemporary offers an open floor plan and views…

We’re continuing our week looking at homes for sale in Beacon, Cold Spring, and Garrison, and this Cold Spring home caught our eyes for a couple of reasons. First of all, the location is a pretty 2.62-acre lot overlooking a pond teeming with birds, just a few miles from both Beacon in southern Dutchess and Cold Spring in Putnam County. The house provides plenty of look-out spots for bird watching, including two pond-view balconies.

Secondly, just look at the 2,184-square foot interior. Adorned with knotty-pine paneling and ceilings, the open-floor-plan living room, dining room, and kitchen includes a wood stove, wood floors, and lots of windows. Also comes with a three-sided glass den that’s a prime spot for enjoying life on the pond.

Among the three bedrooms in this home is a master suite that includes three sliding glass doors that open onto a balcony. The upper level is a loft currently laid-out as an office/study space.

For those looking for something close to Cold Spring or Beacon but don’t want to live right in town, this is the perfect spot. Its idyllic location and roomy lot size make it suitable for a family with children, and it’s situated within the highly-rated Haldane Central School District.

To the southwest of this house lies the Hudson Highlands, while the 14,000+ acres of Clarence Fahnestock State Park is directly to the east. Speaking of the east, can you picture the sun rising over the pond in the morning while you take your coffee on the balcony? No need it. It will look similar to this.
