A Beautifully Renovated Ranch in Dutchess for $785K

  |  March 8, 2023

We’re leaning toward luxury today on our ranch-house tour.

Just northeast of Poughkeepsie is the town of Washington, where this c.1962 two-bedroom holds court. The house is a roomy 2,468 square feet. Siding on the hipped-roof house is a subtle, deep gray tone.

Inside, though, the house is bright. A hardwood floor and cream-colored walls greet you in the foyer.

The hardwoods continue in the living room, which has a Midcentury-Modern-standard picture window and twin sashed windows.

A brick fireplace has a white, wooden surround.

The dining room is off the living room. It shares the spare, Scandinavian-style minimalism of the living room, with clean white walls and a Midcentury shaded pendant over the dining table.

This sunny den occupies a bumped-out part of the house off the dining room.

The kitchen has white cabinets and a black granite countertop. Stainless steel appliances add shine to the room, and the white subway-tile backsplash fits the space perfectly.

Built-in shelves offer more storage next to a spot for a small breakfast table and chairs.

The house has two bedrooms and two baths. This room is bright with lots of windows and a hardwood floor.

This bath has a wood floor and white decor, includiing the vanity, tile wainscoting, and a tub/shower.

This bedroom has double sliding-door closets.

The second bathroom has the same decor as the first. They both have Kohler cast-iron tubs.

The basement is finished in a gray-white color scheme with a family room, media room, and home office.

The walkout basement also has this big mudroom/laundry room.

This covered back patio is off the kitchen. It’s paved with bricks, which also form a pathway around the house, where it becomes gravel and leads to…

…this 600-square-foot studio.

It’s beautifully finished with the same gray tile as the basement, and has sliding doors that flood the room with daylight.

The property is almost six acres on a dead-end road. Yet it’s only seven minutes to Millbrook (and its namesake winery) and the Wassaic train station.
