…and another full bath on the second floor, where you’ll also find three sun-drenched bedrooms.

Back down on the ground floor, the back portion of the house consists of an enclosed porch that could be opened up, or kept as a seasonal rec room.

Although the backyard is small, it does provide a spot for a cook-out, as well as a single car garage/carriage house.

Just a mile east of this sweet residential neighborhood is the Vassar College campus with a surrounding neighborhood that delivers a college-town vibe, decent take-out, and a cultural hub. From here, the Poughkeepsie Metro North station is about two miles away.
