Does the fact that this property comes with not one, but two generously-sized homes justify the price? When it comes to Putnam County, the answer is decidedly “yes.” As one of the country’s most well-to-do areas, Putnam is known for its elegant Hudson Valley country estates, tucked-away behind lush vegetation, occasionally with Hudson River views (and those views will cost you, that’s for sure). So, a two-acre swathe of land 10 minutes from Cold Spring village upon which are nestled two separate residences, one of which is a restored Victorian, seems almost affordable.
The Victorian main house is the crown jewel of the mini-estate, but we love the loft layout of the smaller, more contemporary cottage. It all adds up to a generous amount of living space less than 90 minutes from the city and 10 minutes from the nearest Metro-North station.
