A Cozy, Comfortable Hyde Park Cottage: $259K

  |  May 22, 2024

The Dutchess County town of Hyde Park is well known as FDR’s hometown. It’s also the locale for today’s Upstater pick.

This cozy, comfortable Hyde Park cottage is pristine white on the outside, and move-in ready on the inside. Coming in at 644 square feet, the c.1943 cottage was renovated down to its bones and given a full refresh—without the c.2020s black-and-white ethos.

The gray front door opens into a petite living room that has white walls and a gleaming hardwood floor.

It shares an open concept with a dining area and a full kitchen. A drop-leaf table is an ingenious idea for this space.

The kitchen cabinets are painted moss-green, with butcher-block counters, but are otherwise unadorned. New appliances add to the glow off the polished counters.

At the rear of the house, the back door opens to a small sitting area/mudroom.

The single bedroom in the house has light umber walls with white trim around the windows and baseboard.

This spot could be a tiny home office.

The bathroom is tidy, with a nice mosaic-print floor that complements the blue walls and white fixtures. White shelving is built-in next to the shower stall.

A laundry room cozies up next to the bathroom.

For a small house, there’s lots of outdoor entertaining space, starting with this enclosed, sunken patio with a brick-and-gravel foundation.

A large, grassy area rises past that patio.

The property measures just over a half-acre, so there’s plenty of room to romp.

A cute red shed offers storage options.

It’s just four minutes from this cutie to FDR’s estate in Hyde Park—now a national historic site. The price was just reduced by more than $25,000, so it’s sure to go soon.
