A Highland Falls Ranch with Hudson River Views, $649,900

If you hear “Ranch” and think of antiquated shag carpeting and orange kitchen appliances, this Contemporary Ranch might change your mind.  

Its construction dates back to the 1950s, but you’d be hard-pressed to find anything old-fashioned about this three bedroom/three bath, 1,504-square-foot home situated on a full acre of land on the Hudson River.

Bold splashes of color and silver/grey tones make this home modern, along with its light-filled, open floor plan, wood floors, and high-end finishes. The updated kitchen includes Caesarstone quartz counter tops, shimmering tile back splash, and a Big Chill stove.

Your friends and family will want to drop in to check out this home’s sweeping views of the Hudson, so it’s a good thing the living room/dining room/kitchen offer the perfect place to entertain…

…and, a sitting room that opens onto a huge deck via sliders make mixing indoor and outdoor living a breeze (see what we did there?).

In the winter, light up the fireplace…

…or stay cool thanks to central air conditioning.

Even the bedrooms and updated baths offer river views…

…or, getting a closer look by walking from the deck down to the boulder outcropping. From here, in addition to Hudson views, you’ll have a front row seat to the Putnam County hills across the river.

This dreamy location is just south of Highland Mills in southern Orange County, close to West Point and the Bear Mountain State Park.
