A Mediterranean Villa in Putnam County, $680K

The map says that this Garrison storybook cottage is in the Hudson Valley, but it feels like a provincial country house on the coast of Spain…

…right down to its stucco exterior strung with fairy lights across the gravel patio. Oh, yeah. We’re officially classifying this one as “dreamy af.” The romance continues with the 1,446-square-foot interior with original plaster walls, which offer a duel purpose: They provide insulation, holding in the heat during the winter and the cool air in the summer; and, they look simply smashing.

Built in 1929, the house boasts a shiny new kitchen with stainless steel appliances and marble counter tops. Huge windows and gleaming white subway tile backsplash keep things bright.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a former dining room featuring new steel doors with arched, transom windows. Those doors open onto the patio to connect the outside with the inside. Imagine the parties and special events possible here…

Includes three bedrooms and two full baths, situated on an acre of private land just south of Garrison hamlet. The views around this part of the Hudson Valley are breathtaking. In fact, we’re so enamored with this part of the Upstater area that we’re spending this whole week exploring the real estate offerings around Putnam and Orange Counties, from the Hudson Highlands through Bear Mountain, along the shores of the Hudson. Stay tuned for more!
