Putnam County Victorian For Sale under Ten Minutes from Taconic Parkway, $549,900

Looking for something spacious and stately? Then feast your eyes on this c.1870 Victorian with slate mansard roof and wrap-around front porch located in Mahopac, Putnam County. Situated under 10 minutes from the Taconic State Parkway east of the Hudson River, this house includes 6 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2965 square feet, and a one-acre lot with a two-story carriage house. That’s a whole-lotta-house!

Lots of updates and renovations here, including brand new eat-in kitchen, second floor bathroom and laundry room. The interior doesn’t skimp on the period features like tiled entry foyer, parlor, built-ins, fireplaces, hardwood/wide board flooring, 9-foot ceilings on the ground floor, moldings, ceiling tiles, and dining room china closet. Also comes with a three- season sun room and a stone patio.

The hamlet of Mahopac is situated on Lake Mahopac, which is accessible to the public and is a popular spot to fish and boat. Here’s the thing, though: The shoreline is privately-owned, which means you have to put your boat in at one of two marinas on the south shore…and yes, there is a fee to do so. Regardless, it’s just an hour from NYC, and the area is beautiful and quiet. This property is walking distance to hamlet restaurants and shops.

260 Buckshollow Road, Mahopac (Billingsley Realty)
