This adorable three-story Cold Spring Colonial is right on Main Street, with sidewalks to lead you to the Hudson Riverfront.
Built in 1888, the 1,504-square-foot home underwent a renovation in 2012 that preserved historical details while adding updates that lend modern convenience.
Sidelights and a pretty transom frame the front door. Kudos to the renovators for having the vision to hang on to those original, gleaming wide-plank floors.
The living room is right off the entry. From this angle, it looks pretty basic.
But one entire wall has neat built-ins. It’s a shame that the fireplace is bricked up, but it’s cool-looking just the same.
The kitchen/dining area has an interesting floor tile, a cleverly placed peninsula, and the charm of an archway separating the two areas.
Granite counters, an undermount sink, and stainless-steel appliances complement the Shaker-style cabinets with glass uppers. Love that sage-green tone, and the understated subway-tile backsplash!
The house has two good-sized secondary bedrooms, both with hardwood floors, a half-bath, and two full baths: one on the second floor, and another on the top floor.
The top of the house is dedicated to the primary suite. In the primary bedroom at the top of the stairs, you’ll find more clever built-in storage, a desk or vanity space, and mini-split ventilation.
The primary bath is beautiful, with a large glass-and-tile shower.
The backyard is long and slim (the entire property measures a tad over a tenth of an acre), and doglegs out to private parking off of Pearl Street. Hedges and trees make for a semi-private space for play. The best part: It’s just a 10-minute walk to the village center, and another five down to Metro-North (and, in the summer, a double scoop at Moo-Moo’s Creamery).
