As we head into the thick of summer, Upstater is celebrating heat-friendly pursuits like swimming in pools, creeks, and ponds. After your swim, you’ll need to wash off—so this week’s house picks come with outdoor showers for an alfresco freshen-up.
Today’s home in Dutchess County’s LaGrangeville has three bedrooms and 2.5 baths; it was built in 1987, but has had a bunch of updates. The exterior is bright and clean, with a traditional Colonial facade and an attached two-car garage.
The two-story entry has a tile floor, a ginormous crystal chandelier, and an angled flight of center-hall stairs.
The living room has a wood floor and a French door into a family room.
Big enough for a double set of sofas, the family room also has a hardwood floor and is open to the eat-in kitchen.
The kitchen’s updates include a ceramic tile floor; granite countertops; furniture-quality details on the cabinets like turned legs and carved brackets; and a full suite of stainless-steel appliances, including double wall ovens.
Another French door connects the kitchen to the dining room, which has chair-rail molding and a hardwood floor.
The home has two full baths and one half-bath. The listing includes two images of the full bathrooms, but doesn’t signify which is the primary ensuite bath. Here is one of the full baths, with a wide, single-sink granite vanity and a tiled, walk-in shower.
This bathroom has the toilet and shower in a separate room from the single-sink vanity.
The primary bedroom has a wood floor and white Roman shades on the windows. The walls are a soothing pale blue.
This room can be used as a den or a bedroom. With a wood floor and tan walls, it’s a great backdrop for either choice. The third bedroom isn’t shown in the listing.
The full basement is partially finished.
Mechanical updates include a new UV-light water treatment system; radon mitigation; Gutter Helmet; and stainless steel chimney caps.
The back deck is low-maintenance Trex material in gray with a white railing. A retractable awning offers shade when needed. Next to the deck is a hot tub with an outdoor shower, and an inground pool.
There’s a little over one acre of property to play with, although with 3,550 square feet of interior space, what more could you need? The house is five minutes from the Taconic State Parkway, and is within the Arlington School District, making it a good choice for a family.
