Front-Porch Perfection in Poughkeepsie, $275K

1927 craftsman

Time to up your front-porch-hang-out game with this 1927 Craftsman, situated on a big residential lot in Poughkeepsie’s South Side.

The Pyramid-shaped front porch columns on this Jazz-Age home prompted us to pause our Craftsman-centric real estate listing search to take a quick tour. We imagined ourselves rocking in our favorite chair on that porch, in the shade, obscured by those columns as we watched the world go by without drawing attention to ourselves. And, if more privacy is needed, simply move the party-of-one out to the back deck overlooking the quarter-acre-plus property.

Alas, one must eventually go back inside. Here, you’ll be returning to a 2,400-square-foot interior with hardwood floors throughout, plus stained-glass windows, clever built-ins, original trim, and French doors.

You may want to revamp this kitchen to suit your own culinarian fantasies, but it offers plenty of room to work with, plus an eat-in space that opens onto the back deck.

The original staircase leads to the second floor, which includes three bedrooms with walk-in closets, as well as a full bath. Both downstairs and upstairs are equipped with air-conditioning. Need more space? There’s also a full basement and walk-up attic for storage or transformation into finished rooms.
