A Cottage-Core House in Beacon: $365K

  |  April 29, 2024

Beacon has evolved from a gritty Hudson River-front city to the “it” place for young families and singles. This week, Upstater is spending some time in this ecologically forward city.

Today’s cottage-core house in Beacon is likely the only home we’ll feature this week that’s south of $700,000. Many properties on the market in Beacon are condos, lofts, and apartments—making single-family, detached homes rather difficult to find. The $365,000 price tag makes this one a figurative unicorn. It’s a cute cottage, with a brick front porch and light-blue siding.

Built in 1930, the house has been renovated without ruining its character. Check out the beamed ceiling and the skylight.

The beams extend into the dining room as well as the living room.

All the rooms seem to have the same wood flooring (it may be wood-look laminate). The primary bedroom has a closet with bifold doors.

The second bedroom is snug, to say the least, and could serve as an office or even a walk-in closet.

The third bedroom is a bit bigger.

There’s one bathroom—it’s got big windows and white subway tile on the walls.

The glass-doored shower has a toe-splasher faucet as well as an oversized showerhead.

The kitchen is…efficient, with one wall dedicated to cabinets, the sink, and a gas range, and stacked laundry machines tucked into an opposite corner.

The house sits on a quarter-acre, which you can oversee from this nice-sized wood deck.

There’s a lot of space for gardening or just romping around. It’s about two miles (or a five-minute drive) to the center of Beacon’s downtown and tacos at Tito Santana Taqueria, or a hot brew at Bank Square Coffeehouse.
