There’s no doubt about it: $2500/month will get you a cute apartment in Manhattan…a cute, cramped, studio apartment with juuuust enough room to turn around in. Ready to get more bang for your buck?
Head up to to southern Putnam County to the Patterson/Carmel area, where you’ll find that $2500/month in rent gets you a private, hilltop octagonal retreat with two bedrooms, two baths, 1650 square feet of interior room, mountain views, wrap-around decks, bluestone patio, in-ground pool, and hot tub, all situated on 5 acres of land just over an hour from midtown Manhattan.
Remember when we were talking about “entertainment compounds” last week? This property – located just south of Patterson and northeast of Lake Carmel – is a miniature version of one of those compounds with living room stone hearth fireplace, cathedral ceilings, detailed millwork, and gourmet kitchen with chef’s range.
We’ve had our fun. Now, it’s down to business: Tenant pays all utilities including law care and snow removal. Owner will open and close pool; tenant to maintain pool and hot tub. Subject to full credit report with score of 700 or better, proof of income, references. No pets and no smoking allowed.
