Looking to live and work in one location? This city of Beacon brick building comes with an attractive main living space as well as an apartment, studio/workshop, and fixer-upper guest cottage…
How much do you love a walkable town? Here at Upstater, we really love them, which is why we’re devoting this entire week to properties on-the-market that are walking distance to local businesses and amenities. This exceptional property is situated near the heart of Beacon in Dutchess County, NY, right on the Fishkill Creek. Cross the bridge and you’re on Main Street, where you can eat, catch live music, shop at boutiques, take a yoga class, or hit the local weekend flea market.
The brick building itself dates back to the turn-of-the-century and sports a full renovation. The main living area is spread out over the second and third floors of the building and feature wide-plank hardwood floors and exposed brick throughout, in addition to an open-concept kitchen with vintage gas stove and large cabinets, dining room with wood burning stove, and sunroom with private terrace with Fishkill Creek and Mt. Beacon views. Also includes three bedrooms and two full baths.
Downstairs, the 1,000-square-foot first-floor apartment could bring you extra income. Comes with an open concept living room, kitchen and dining area, plus two bedrooms, one full bath, and laundry in-unit. The total size of the building is 4,600 square feet.
And, move your creative pursuits ’round back to the 600-square-foot workshop with double doors so you can get your large materials in there…
Alas, the fixer-upper guest house is a bit of a mystery that cannot be found within the listing for this property, so best just to assume it’s a huge mess that needs everything. That way, if it’s not, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Includes 100 feet of Fishkill Creek frontage on a quarter-acre plot with mountain views. The Beacon Metro-North station is a five-minute drive from here, as is the Hudson River waterfront. Beacon, NY truly is a walkable village of our dreams, so we suggest you take a closer look if you’re interested in an artsy village, east-of-Hudson, close to public transportation.
