Bold and Beautiful in Poughkeepsie, $189,900

  |  January 15, 2015

At this point, we should really expect to be surprised, as “you can’t judge a book by its cover” is essentially the golden rule of real estate. And yet, there are still those properties that throw us for a loop, and this four-bedroom Poughkeepsie home was one of them. We were delighted by the bold colors on the interior walls, as well as the exposed brick that compliments the smooth wooden cabinets in the kitchen with some unexpected texture. We anticipate some pleasant surprises from the neighbors as well – with three golf courses, Vassar’s lush campus, and Spratt Park just a stone’s throw away, there will be plenty of discoveries to make for Dutchess County newcomers.
