When spring arrives at this Amenia brick cottage on three acres, it will come draped in colorful blossoms and verdant greenery on all sides.
It’s officially spring, which means we can’t stop thinking about digging around in the dirt and watching little things grow. If you’re into gardening, too, and looking for a home to buy with already-established gardens or want to create your own, Upstater’s got your back this week with our favorite homes with gardens in the Hudson Valley and Catskills…
…and, we’re kicking things off in Amenia, NY in eastern Dutchess County, about a half-hour’s drive from Rhinbeck village. This country-cute cottage comes with three acres of land, consisting of bountiful flower beds lining the exterior, as well as a fenced-in garden in the backyard. And, if you enjoy container plants inside the house, they’ll do well here, thanks to copious natural lighting and a bay window upon which to display your favorites.
All those herbs you’re growing? Put them to good use in this gingham kitchen with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and a darling eat-in nook.
There are two bedrooms, one of which is a master bedroom with another bay window for still more plants…
…as well as an enclosed sunroom with lots of natural light, a wood stove, and still more room for blooming things.
If you’re the commuting kind, the Wassaic Metro-North station is three miles away from here. Or, hop on the Taconic State Parkway and head south.
