We wouldn’t blame you if you fell in love with this Cornwall Cape Cod that’s bigger on the inside than you might think. 

If you’re still searching for an idyllic Hudson Valley community in a quiet, mellow setting that’s within ninety minutes of NYC, then you clearly haven’t looked into the Orange County, NY town of Cornwall. Within that town is the little hamlet of Firthcliffe, where this charm-packed Cape is situated on a tree-lined residential street.

Built in the early 1930s, the 1,769-square-foot cottage includes a lot of new features, like the roof, hot water heater, and the boiler. But, the improvements are more obvious in the pristine and light-filled living room…

…and the remodeled kitchen with new appliances and custom cabinetry…

…which opens to the formal dining room large enough to accommodate a family-sized table and a side credenza/buffet.

Rounding out the big first floor are two bedrooms that share a full bathroom, one of which has doors that open to the outside, and one of which comes with a massive walk-in closet. Make these rooms regular bedrooms, a bedroom plus nursery, a home office, or a mother-in-law suite with its own entrance.

But, the bedrooms don’t end on the first floor. Upstairs, there are three more bedrooms, as well as another full bath.

Bring the party outside to the backyard patio. Surround it all with your own hand-grown garden beds in the spring. The property also includes a single-car garage on the basement level.

From here, Cornwall businesses are a short walk away. It’s also an easy walk to Cornwall Elementary School, and the high school is a ten-minute drive. Check “family-friendly” area off of your short list.
