Elegant, Renovated Country House in Putnam County, $575,000


Carmel in Putnam County, located on the east side of the Hudson River, is often where we look for residential real estate that’s within striking distance of both the upper and lower Hudson Valley, as well as the city, without the listing prices that you might find in, say, Cold Spring or Garrison. Case in point: This beautiful four-bedroom country home with water views and four acres of land attached priced priced for…cheap? No, we won’t call $575K (not to mention Putnam County taxes in general) cheap, but we’ve seen less house for more money.

Here’s what else you get with this 1940s Cape Cod: A full renovation by the current owners, who clearly put a lot of love and thought into making the 3000+ square foot interior comfortable and nice to look at. Includes high ceilings, formal living room, diamond leaded glass, and hand-carved fireplace mantle. Formal dining room comes with built-ins, and the attached kitchen has been updated with new stainless steel appliances and French double doors that open onto the stone patio. The house has also been in updated where it counts with new electrical, septic, well, blown in insulation, Andersen windows and doors, and a gas furnace.

Located close to both the Taconic State Parkway and I-84, and less than 90 minutes from NYC.
