The same year that this Contemporary house in Putnam County was built, Gerald Ford was the President, A Chorus Line won a Pulitzer Prize, the US average yearly income was around $16K, and two guys named Steve created Apple Computers. Needless to say, a lot has changed since 1976, but that doesn’t diminish our love of this spacious, loft-like home, throw-back though it may be.
Elements like vaulted ceilings, wood floors, and lots of natural light are timeless, and the 3500 square foot interior has plenty of those. One retro feature we wouldn’t dare touch is that kitchen with yellow countertops. Kubrick could film a scene in there.
Other features include skylights, open loft spaces, a two-story brick fireplace, spiral staircase with copper railing, and master suite with walk-in closets. Lots of room for everyone with four bedrooms and over 3 acres of land convenient to the Taconic State Parkway.
Located 90 minutes from NYC.
