Located close to both Cold Spring and Garrison, this Putnam Valley Contemporary is the ultimate “house in the woods…”
We’re spending the week in southern Dutchess/northern Putnam County, and we’re not going to lie to you: It’s not easy to find a house for sale in Garrison, NY. Little towns mean little real estate inventory, and in Garrison, much of the market consists of luxury homes (don’t worry; we’ll be looking at one of those later this week).
However, if you step just outside of Garrison proper, on the other side of the Clarence Fahnestock State Park, you’ll find Putnam Valley and some slightly more affordable real estate, like this knotty-pine Contemporary with a lofty, breezy interior, sitting on five acres of land.
Includes 2,180 square feet, three bedrooms, three baths, and natural light a-plenty thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows and glass sliders.
The master suite comes with sliding glass doors for your own personal view of the treelined landscape.
The living room/kitchen/dining room level opens onto a huge balcony via glass doors, expanding the common room of the house from the indoors to the outdoors.
And, if you love the outdoors, this location scores high marks. Situated on the eastern border of Fahnestock park, minutes from the nearest entrance to the Appalachian trail. Driving to NYC via the Taconic State Parkway takes just under 90 minutes.
There’s another plus about looking for a Putnam County home just outside of towns like Cold Spring and Garrison: the property taxes. They’re lower in these parts. Tax rate on this property was $6,087 for 2018, and that’s good for Putnam County.
