Today, Upstater visits a lovely Cape Cod-style home that’s just north of downtown Red Hook.
Built in 2000, it’s got traditional Cape Cod vibes, along with three bedrooms and a home office.
Three dormers preside above a wide front porch. A fourth dormer is just to the side of the porch. Centered between two sets of sash windows is the redwood-toned front door with white-trimmed sidelights.
It opens to a traditional center hall. with white walls and wood flooring.
The center-hall stairway is white, with wood treads, railings, and newel post. The hall offers a clear view to the sliders leading outside.
A home office is just off the entry—a boon for a remote worker.
The living room decor is spare, with white walls, a wood floor, and zero window treatments.
But it’s deceivingly big, taking up most of the back of the main floor and encompassing a full dining area. A woodstove has its own tiled niche with a curtain rod overhead that likely hides the woodstove from view in the warmer months.
The kitchen branches off the dining area. It’s got a large, quartz-topped center island with a breakfast bar. The cabinets are white, Shaker-style, with wainscoting on their faces and black hardware. Oversized glass pendants dangle over the island.
Traditional touches like white subway tile and warm wooden flooring enhance the look of the space.
The main-floor primary bedroom has wood flooring and plenty of room for the bed, seating areas, and other furniture.
The gray-themed ensuite bath has two separate vanities with a pier cabinet between them; white penny tile on the floor; a separate shower; and a soaking tub.
The main-floor laundry room is dressed up with Audubon-esque papers on the upper cabinetry. It’s also got a work sink and a door leading outside.
The powder room on the main floor has a bold, black-and-white tile floor, gray wainscoting, and a stylish pedestal sink.
Each of the two upstairs bedrooms are spacious, with bright nooks from the multiple dormers.
This one is more than large enough for two beds.
The listing says the second floor has two baths—one that’s ensuite to a bedroom. This is one of them, with double vanities and white penny-tile flooring.
The soaking tub has its own niche, dressed up with a wood plank accent wall.
The basement is partially finished with a laminate floor in this entertainment area. It leads to a breezeway and mud room attached to the two-car garage.
The house is on more than four acres that include a firepit, garden, this expansive deck, and another deck around an above-ground pool.
A large solar array takes up most of the rear roof.
