Car-Free Country House: 18th Century Garrison Colonial, $629,999

We’ve actually been eye-balling this house for a while, stumbling across it here and there. It’s fairytale cottage appearance makes us keep clicking back on it to take a closer look. And then we see the price tag: $331/square foot. That’s a wee bit steep. But it is on 2 acres, and it was built in 1763, which is appealing for history’s sake. Also comes with a 2-story barn set up with electricity and plumbing.

The location looks pretty good for going car-free. It’s positioned almost smack on the middle point between the Cold Spring train station (3.5 miles away) and the Garrison train station (3 miles away), it’s just steps away from the Maple Lawn Farm Market on Route 9 and the Bird and Bottle Inn. It’s also close to one of our favorite places in the Upstater area:  Boscobel House and Gardens. Plus, Cold Spring is a great town right down the road, as well as Garrison, there are several lakes and ponds around, stuff to do outside (Hudson Highlands State Park is just on the other side of Cold Spring), restaurants close by, etc. Seems like a sweet spot in Putnam County.
