A Tivoli Creekside Home with 20 Acres, $429K

  |  July 12, 2022

Tivoli is a small-yet-popular place to live in Dutchess County. As such, it’s difficult to find property before it’s snatched up.

This three-bedroom on 20 acres, just outside Tivoli proper but with a Tivoli mailing address, is a case in point. Built in 1938, it’s been fixed up inside but is open to new renovation dreams.

The Mid-Century Modern front door opens into a living room with a floor that’s partially ceramic tile and partially terrazzo-esque tile. Judging from the lone window unit lingering on the floor below the window, there’s no central air-conditioning here.

Hints of the house’s post-Depression-era birth are evident in the wood-framed windows.

The rest of the main level received a laminate-floor-and-white-trim redo, with a super-wide opening between the parlor and the kitchen.

The kitchen is big and could use some rethinking—maybe a big cooking island to replace the electric range? Plus the new owner might want to relocate the washer and dryer.

Up those stairs off the parlor is a true nod to the house’s beginnings: a knotty pine floor. Three bedrooms and a bath are tucked away up here.

There’s a roomy deck on one side of the house, with a door into the kitchen.

The house’s exterior could use a boost of new paint or siding.

Still, 20 acres is nothing to sneeze at, with a half-mile of creekside fun to be had on the Roeliff Jansen Kill. And the property is 10 minutes from Bard College, 20 minutes to Rhinebeck, five minutes to the Taconic, and a two-hour highway trek to Manhattan.
