Wish List House #5: Elegant Poughkeepsie NY Victorian Packed with Goodies, $339,900

Historic home mavens should take serious look at the city of Poughkeepsie. Union Street, Academy Street, and the Southside historic districts offer a wealth of antique Victorians, like this Poughkeepsie NY Victorian located in the city’s Academy Street historic district.

The four-bedroom home was built at the turn-of-the-century, and it includes the bells and whistles we’ve come to love about an old Victorian house: Pocket doors, high ceilings, parquet wood inlaid floors, fireplaces, a grand staircase, and stained glass windows. And, it wouldn’t be a 19th-century Victorian without some “Upstairs Downstairs” flare. This one’s got a butler’s pantry in the kitchen.

Includes 3000 square feet over over three floors with a finished attic bedroom/home studio/office. For $79/square foot, this Wish List House is an honest-to-goodness bargain.

Sits on a quarter-acre parcel just east of Route 9 and about a half-mile from the waterfront and the Metro North/Amtrak station.
