…and it’s a picture-perfect 1890s Victorian with a designer interior situated right in the middle of town. 

We’re celebrating the holiday season with a bevy of real-life gingerbread houses for sale in the Hudson Valley and Catskills, and the southern Dutchess County town of Pawling beckons us to behold this Queen Anne beauty. Its 2,320-square-foot span includes a multitude of bold hues and original details like plank floors, wood trim painted a licorice-black, a grand staircase, and stained glass windows that look all the world like they’re fashioned from sugar.

High ceilings add to this home’s expansive nature, making even the smaller rooms feel bigger than they are. The open living room off the main hallway includes a marble fireplace…

…and easily flows into the formal dining room enveloped in windows and eye-popping, kelly-green walls.

You’ll find plenty of updates living here, too, like the kitchen and two full baths, plus a new commercial boiler, water softener, water heater, and spray foam and blown insulation.

Three bedrooms should keep everyone comfortable and organized…

…and we positively nuts over this remodeled attic room with cathedral ceilings, refinished wood floors, and more stained glass windows. How would you utilize this outstanding space? Art studio is tempting, but we’re leaning toward keeping for ourselves as the master bedroom.

Located on a tidy, spacious .4-acre lot on a street populated with other well-maintained, eye-catching older homes. The Pawling train station is a ten-minute walk from the front door, and public schools, cafes, the public library, and shops are also walking-distance away. Park your car for days at a time and give up your gym membership during the warmer months by biking and walking everywhere.
