Head Home to the Lower Hudson and Southern Putnam/Westchester County…

This week on Upstater, we’re looking at the residential real estate market in the lower Hudson Valley, east of the river…

…and that means spending time in southern Putnam and Westchester Counties. Kicking things off is this colorful, charming Victorian situated in the city of Peekskill.

Listing for $385K, the three-bedroom house might seem like a bargain for tony Westchester County, and, indeed, it is. Places like Peekskill, Ossining, and Cortlandt Manor offer more affordable property options than Rye, Larchmont, or Pound Ridge. Likewise, in southern Putnam County, Putnam Valley, Carmel, and Brewster will have more affordable options than Cold Spring or Garrison. That doesn’t mean we don’t love the real estate inventory in those more expensive places. Of course we love those big, fancy homes, and if you can afford them and the property taxes that come with them, more power to you!

Meanwhile, let’s continuing exploring this less expensive but delightful-as-hell 1890s Victorian in the heart of Peekskill…

While it still maintains old-fashioned charm, this Victorian has a number of modern perks, like new hot water heater, boiler, and electrical system. It’s also solar-powered.

Includes three bedrooms, two baths, formal dining room with bay windows, contemporary kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and a huge fenced-in yard.
