Unique 1970s Contemporary in the South Poughkeepsie Suburbs, $699,000

This 1973 Contemporary in Poughkeepsie might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but we find it intriguing and beguiling in its own far-out, happening kind of way, and we thought a few of you Upstater readers might find it so, as well.

Priced on the high end of the residential real estate inventory at $699k, the land itself is about 1.3 acres in size, but the house is a staggering 5300 square feet with six bedrooms, four full baths (!!!) and some nifty bells and whistles like surround sound stereo system, game room, solarium, and wet bar in the great room. Long story short, if this house had been a friend’s house when I was growing up, I would’ve been over there after school, every single day, playing air hockey and Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots.

Leopard print carpeting might not be our bag, but we love the wood paneling, tile floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows. And, wait until you see the master bath. It’s a sparkling, luxurious throw-back with a glass shower the size of your entire current bathroom.

Located south of Route 55 and east of Route 9 and the Hudson Riverfront.

10 Gus Siko Road, Poughkeepsie (Berkshire Hathaway)
