A Cold Spring Mid-Mod with a Screened Porch: $525K

  |  July 12, 2023

Cold Spring has its share of ramblers and ranches, and today’s Upstater pick is no exception. It’s a c.1967 ranch tucked in the woods, but still only 10 minutes to the center of the village.

The exterior has traditional ranch vibes, with concrete steps, an iron railing, and pretty landscaping below the brick-red cedar siding.

The original hardwood floor runs throughout the house. The living room is brightened by a triple picture window.

A brick fireplace still functions as a wood-burning source of supplemental heat.

A drum set currently sits in what would be the dining area. And do we get a peek at an original, avocado-green appliance?

Yes, we do: The wall oven would satisfy any Mid-Mod cook. The cooktop is from the same era (and color scheme), too, as you can see in the 3D tour.

Overall, the kitchen is a good size, and the cabinets (though dated) seem to be in good condition. But at the least, we’d update the vinyl flooring, the countertops, and those appliances.

Sliders from the kitchen and dining area open to this wood-clad, aqua-carpeted three-season room. It’s got great woodsy views…

…plus access to a roomy back deck.

The house has three bedrooms, all of them pretty basic with wood floors.

This one’s blue with a wallpaper-sketch accent wall.

And this one’s a mauve-y purple.

There’s only one bathroom. The vanity is modern, with a granite-look, multi-level counter. The tub/shower is yellow, surrounded by yellow tile (get a closer look in that linked tour above), and the floor needs to be redone, as well. The full, unfinished basement has high ceilings and could easily fit a second bath and other room possibilities.

The house is on an acre of lovely property, perfect for unplugging at the end of the day after hopping off the nearby, city-bound Metro-North train.
