As the saying goes, “Good fences make good neighbors.” So this week, Upstater’s visiting homes with secure boundaries that not only help contain kiddos and pets, but keep out some of the more annoying garden-gnawing critters.

Today’s pick is in Fishkill: It’s a two-bedroom cottage just minutes from the village’s downtown, and close to Route 84. It was built in 1940 but has had some renovations done—including a brand-new, ductless, highly efficient, low temp heating/cooling unit.

The house also has radiators, one of which greets you at the front door into the living room. This space could use a fresh coat of paint, but it’s got great light, a wood floor, and a fireplace.

See how the sun just glows on that floor!

This is the dining room, with built-in cabinets for storage and serving.

Next to it is the kitchen, which packs a lot of storage and workspace into a compact spot. It’s got white cabinetry and a brown granite countertop that fills out at one end into a breakfast bar.

The hardwood floor continues through the kitchen into the adjoining sunroom.

There is built-in cabinetry in the sunroom, too, along with walls of windows and wood planking.

The house’s 1,672 square feet include two bedrooms. The first has charming glass doorknobs, white walls, and a hardwood floor.

The bathroom could use a redo. It’s got white, tongue-and-groove paneling, and white tile in the tub/shower.

The second bedroom has light blue walls and a celestial ceiling border.

The full, unfinished basement has a laundry area…

…space to refinish into a great recreation room…

…and a huge workbench.

A one-car, detached garage offers more room for stuff at the end of an extra-wide driveway.

There’s plenty of room for a pickup basketball game, cornhole, or just parking for that houseful of guests you’ll invite for your housewarming.
