Today we’re in Beacon and a five-minute stroll from a Hudson Valley Restaurant Week meal at the Roundhouse. Bonus: Theres no FOMO over the eatery’s waterfall view—this house has one, too.
Built in 1870, the four-bedroom, 3.5-bath beauty has been comfortably updated but still has breathtaking original details.
The double front doors open to yet another set of doors before you get to the foyer with its wide-plank flooring.
Conversely, the living room has shiny, skinny-plank floors. Thick white baseboards and trim accent the slate-blue wall color.
The fireplace is rustic brick, surrounded by a genteel white mantelpiece.
Another vintage gem: pocket doors leading to the sunny, bright dining room.
The eat-in kitchen has newer-looking wood floors and an updated set of Shaker-style cabinetry with glass uppers and half-moon pulls on the lowers. Marble countertops and stainless steel appliances give a higher-end feel to the room.
This hall has a chandelier, white wainscoting, and a door to a full bath.
White subway tile climbs halfway up the wall from geometric black-and-white floor tile. The room just fits the necessities, including a spectacular claw-foot tub and vintage-style wall-mount sink.
The lower floor has this bedroom and an ensuite with another clawfoot tub.
Head up the main staircase to an upper hall with more of that gorgeous wide-plank floor.
*Gasp* This room would be where we’d be spending our ENTIRE winter if we could, with a good stack of firewood alongside this floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace. We’ll be the one cozying up in an easy chair next to an equally high stack of books.
Moving on, the rest of the upstairs is a ramble of rooms, including this one that has twin sconces flanking a window; a vintage radiator; and…a towel rack?
And then there’s this walk-in closet that’s on point, with built-in drawers and shelves and lots of space to hang clothing.
This ensuite bath has been beautifully updated, with light penny tile on the floor and white subway tile on the walls. It’s all brightened up with a skylight up top.
The 2,072-square-foot house sits on just over a tenth of an acre, with an artist’s studio, a two-car garage, and a cedar pergola. It includes a second lot that’s got a pretty benefit…
…this creekside vantage point with the aforesaid waterfall view. Given the home’s beauty inside and out, and its choice proximity to all that Beacon has to offer, we bet it won’t last long on the market.
