A Luxuriously Redesigned c. 1950 Cottage in Rhinebeck: $825K

  |  May 30, 2024

Rhinebeck has homes of all styles, and today’s Upstater pick is a stunner that packs designer details into a manageable size.

This luxuriously redesigned c. 1950 cottage in Rhinebeck fits three bedrooms and two baths into 1,755 square feet. The exterior is a dramatic navy blue, with espailliered plantings hugging the front facade. A gravel parking area is low-maintenance and welcoming for a crowd of guests.

A bright foyer has a three-paned door to the open living space. Redesigned, according to the listing, by unnamed but “well-known purveyors of luxury interior decor,” the interior is understated but gorgeous. The dining area is lit by a Bocci Canopy pendant grouping. The floor is rustic wide planks, painted gray.

Another angle shows a wall of sleek white custom cabinets that stretch from the dining area into the kitchen.

A wide expanse of marbled granite covers the counters and juts into a peninsula holding a gas cooktop.

Professional-grade fixtures like the faucet, and modern hardware, elevate the space.

The living-room end of the open-concept space is big and bright, with a nook that’s perfect for a kids’ play area.

Knotty-pine accent walls are a surprise that warm up the otherwise whitewashed walls. A skinny woodstove warms everything up in the cold seasons.

The first-floor primary bedroom has its own fireplace and a wall of windows.

A wall that’s almost completely lined with freestanding closets is a welcome benefit. They’re white, to contrast with the deep, dark blue of the floor and headboard wall.

Designer touches in the primary ensuite bath include penny tile on the walls, shallow dual sinks in the floating vanity, and a shower stall with a full-length window.

Black stairs are cut in to the knotty-pine walls in the living room to climb to the second floor.

Teeny beams cross the peaked, shiplap ceiling up here.

We’re thinking that’s a minifridge in that cabinet. We could be wrong, but wouldn’t that be a good idea? We love the bookshelf etagere on the stairwell.

This bedroom has a French door to a balcony.

The bathroom has a teal accent wall and a freestanding tub with an interesting, oversized, angular faucet.

Black walls and a black floor are an unexpected touch for a nursery, but it works here thanks to a white area rug and the white shiplap ceiling.

That wallpaper with moon phases is extraordinary, in our opinion.

Outside, the gable end of the house swaps traditional shutters for these cool barn-door substitutes.

The rear of the house has a wraparound deck with ShadeSails and cable railings. A pergola supports vines. Head down the deck stairs to a built-in grill and prep space.

The 2.8-acre property includes a sunken stone firepit. The house is a bit southeast of downtown Rhinebeck, but it’s still only a six-minute drive to soak up history (and a fine dinner) at Beekman Arms & Delamater Inn. If you need to stretch your legs, Drayton Grant Park at Burger Hill is just a mile away.
