This Federal-Style Brick Home Dates All the Way Back…to 2014!

Here’s a Contemporary Federal house that stays true to the historic character of its Hudson Valley hometown. 

The hamlet of Bellvale might be small, but it’s packed with history. Long House Creek runs right through the center of town and was once home to sawmills, grist mills, and tanneries, as well as the only trip hammer mill in the colony of New York during the mid-1700s. During the Revolutionary War, British soldiers destroyed that mill, an act of aggression that helped spark America’s war for independence. Bellvale’s historic past remains preserved in its homes and buildings, and while his two-bedroom, two-bath home was built just five years ago, its old-style brick facade fits in just fine.

Meanwhile, its 1,650-square-foot interior is all contemporary, with oak floors, a calming color scheme, and clean white wainscoting. The open-concept first-floor also boasts nine-foot ceilings.

Nowhere is the home’s true pedigree more apparent than in the kitchen, which is outfitted with custom cabinetry, marbled quartz counter tops, and stainless steel appliances.

On the second floor are the home’s two bedrooms, including the master bedroom with full bath and huge windows for sunlight.

Both baths are clad in marble…

…and a full finished basement with shelving and laundry.

Like a water view from your backyard? Enjoy one here on the .15-acre lot, plenty of room for an intimate outdoor soiree, laid-back family cookout, or serene spot to sip your morning coffee.
