Who needs a hard-to-maintain, sprawling home when you can keep it simple and sleek in this Dover Ranch cottage?
This week on Upstater, we talked to some local realtors who gave us their thoughts on the hottest Upstate NY towns of the new year. One of them pointed us in the direction of Dover, NY, situated in southeastern Dutchess County, just over the line from Connecticut. While the Harlem Valley is rural in nature, it offers easy access to civilization since it’s just a 90-minute drive from NYC, and the Wingdale train station is minutes away, as well as recreation with state parkland, rail trails, wineries, and golf courses all in the neighborhood. Real estate prices are relatively reasonable, too, as we discovered with this sparkling Ranch on 2.3 acres of land.
The 1,110-square-foot, two-bedroom cottage comes with some sweet upgrades and renewals, like the hard wood floors, light fixtures, windows, doors, central air-conditioning, paint…the works!
Check out the souped-up gourmand’s kitchen with granite counter tops, stainless steel, and custom cabinetry…
…and we love these charming built-in shelves with hidden storage in the bench…
…not to mention the roomy enclosed shower might make you feel like you’re taking a spa day every morning…
…and plenty of closet space will keep your threads looking fine.
In addition to the stuff you can see in the photos, the stuff you can’t see is updated, too, like the well pump and oil tank.
Got grown-up toys like boats and bikes? Keep them in good condition by storing them in the covered car port or in the detached, single-car garage next to it.
The backyard garden bed offers a change to play in the dirt, and the property is set back from the road with a line of trees to help make it feel private. That’s a lot of bang for your buck!
