Fascinating 1940s Fairytale Cottage in Putnam Co., $649,000

With equal dollops of English Tudor and Chalet styles alike, this stucco-ed 1940s home in Putnam County possesses charm by the truckload. It also has some nifty details like vaulted ceilings, two balconies, living room + kitchen room fireplaces, formal dining room with wall of windows, heated sun porch, greenhouse, and hardwood flooring. While you’re poking around the house, don’t forget to have a peak at the kitchen, which includes tile floors and a 6-burner chef’s stove.

The nifty details don’t stop with the interior, however. The 3.27-acre lot comes with stone outcroppings, clean landscaping, stone patios, and flowery gardens. Our favorite outdoor feature is the in-ground pool with chalet-style cabana/bath house. The listing suggests a tennis court, and why not? The property is already most of the way to being a private resort in the Hudson Valley. Might as well go all the way.

Located just east of I-84, less than 90 minutes from NYC.
