Beautiful Inside and Out on Poughkeepsie’s Historic Academy Street, $239,900

  |  December 21, 2016

Poughkeepsie is often a target for ridicule. In spite of a lot of bad press (which in turn spawned some solid rebuttals), Poughkeepsie is a diverse city with historic architecture and decent take-out. It’s also a commuter location, which puts it right in line with this week’s theme on Upstater.

Situated five minutes from the Poughkeepsie Metro North/Amtrak station, Academy Street is one of Poughkeepsie’s well-preserved historic districts, and this c.1861 Victorian – and its neat-as-a-pin front porch and oak double doors – is right in the midst of all that Poughkeepsie history.

Includes 2400 square feet, four bedrooms, and two full baths. Also included: A host of light-filled interior spaces with floor-to-ceiling windows, bay windows, hardwood floors, fireplaces, and original moldings. Outside, the .16 acre yard may be small, but it’s been landscaped and includes a little storage shed/garage. Walking distance to the Bardavo and waterfront businesses. If Poughkeepsie can be home to a Victorian like this, we’re thinking it can’t be all bad.
