The thing about Poughkeepsie is that there’s a good mix of affordable and high-end housing.
Today’s pick is a sweet, renovated cottage in the town of Poughkeepsie, just north of the Poughkeepsie city line. A painted block foundation supports a gray-sided front porch with architectural columns. The new owner might consider replacing those shrubs flanking the front steps.
The porch itself is roomy and old-fashioned, perfect for a set of chairs—and don’t forget a table or two: You need a place to set your drinks.
The house was built in 1924, and the Craftsman columns separating the living and dining rooms attest to that era. So, too, do the cast-iron radiators. Big windows and the coat of whitewash over—well—everything really brightens up the space and contrasts with the dark wood flooring.
Beautiful renovations updated the kitchen, including white cabinetry with nickel hardware; stainless steel appliances; and marble counters.
Gray laminate covers the floor in the mudroom/sunroom off the kitchen.
The main floor features two bedrooms, each with the same dark hardwood floor.
White walls and trim provide a blank canvas for the new owner’s imagination.
Tile is just about everywhere in the bathroom, from white tile on the walls and ceiling to a multi-toned tile on the floor.
Previous owners refinished the attic in this Cape Cod-style house to include a big bonus room…
…and this cute bedroom with a triplet of windows.
About 400 square feet in the unfinished basement expands the house’s existing 1,400-square-foot footprint.
This rear view shows the mudroom door to the yard. You’ll want to redo the driveway, and you can plant greenery and flowers along the edge.
A wee little concrete patio allows grilling space.
The detached garage is huge, drumming up ideas for an artist’s studio or workshop.
Besides all of that enclosed space, the property hits just under 0.17 acre, but it’s close to everything. Drive just four miles to Route 9 (we’d hit Cosimo’s for flatbread and a nice glass of wine); and Marist College is just six minutes from here.
