Dutchess County Italianate Home Skillfully Blends Old and New, $459K

Do you love antique homes but still need your creature comforts? This Dutchess County Italianate Victorian checks all the boxes…

And, it does it with style and grace. Dating back to 1812, the Todd Homestead is located on 1.21 acres about 10 minutes west of Poughkeepsie. While its birthday puts it well into the “venerable” category, the 4,320-square foot interior is packed with modern updates and features. Those are on full display in the kitchen, which includes stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, cherrywood floors, and oodles of built-in storage space.

The open first-floor plan combines the main parlor, living room, dining room, and kitchen to create flow, all the while sticking with the home’s historic character with pocket doors, 10-foot ceilings, crown molding, ceiling medallions, and a stone fireplace in the living room. The floors are oak and pine, and the doors are mahogany.

Half-bath and laundry room on the first floor feature radiant heat flooring. Also on the first floor is a den/office room with built-in bookcases.

Up the wood staircase to the second floor is the en suite master bedroom with its own sunroom and nursery. Additionally, there are three more bedrooms plus one full bath with a clawfoot tub.
