A Beacon Ranch with Mountain Views: $625K

  |  April 24, 2023

The city of Beacon has grown since the beginning of the 21st century into a go-to place for culture (Dia:Beacon), food (Hudson Valley Food Hall), and outdoor recreation (hiking Mount Beacon, the namesake of the city).

From Main Street to Long Dock Park on the banks of the Hudson River, Beacon is a popular destination for tourists and house-hunters alike. It’s not easy to find an affordable single-family home here, but it’s worth the hunt. This week, Upstater looks at houses within the boundaries of this re-invented city. Today’s pick is a three-bedroom, two-bath ranch with room for expansion.

The exterior is brick, with a bluestone-floored breezeway between the house and the two-car garage.

The door off the breezeway brings you to the foyer, which has arched entryways and a blonde hardwood floor. Another door to the rear deck can be seen here.

A wood half-wall delineates the living room, which has white walls and a brick-and-bluestone fireplace that’s original to the house’s 1962 build.

The fireplace is surrounded by wood planking that echoes 1960s decor.

The kitchen—like the hardwood flooring throughout the house—is new. Gray quartz countertops complement white cabinets and stainless-steel appliances, with white subway tile covering the backsplash.

The three bedrooms all have hardwood floors, double-sliding-door closets, and white walls.

This bedroom is a nice size, and has a mountain view from its window.

The closet doors need a little help in this room, but otherwise the space is ready to serve as a third bedroom.

The hall bathroom has a stone-tile floor and white tile running halfway up the walls and around the tub/shower.

The partially finished basement has coated cinder blocks halfway up the walls, and another fireplace.

There’s a second bath down here, with a tiled, walk-in shower that defies description.

The laundry room down here is big and has a work sink.

The rear deck has iron railings and wraps around one side.

The 1,564-square-foot house sits on a third of an acre and has neat mountain views. It’s a five-minute drive from here to Beacon’s Main Street for live music, food, and shopping.
