Here’s Something Extra in Red Hook: Classy A-Frame + Two Large Lots, $450,000

  |  March 22, 2017

This week on Upstater, we’re sifting the residential real estate listings for properties that come with a little something extra. That something extra could be in the form of a guesthouse, barn, office/studio, or, in this case, an extra lot that’s extra big, situated five minutes from the Taconic Parkway.

One lot is 2.75 acres, and the other is 3.03 acres in size. How would you use an extra three acres of land? Build another house and make yourself a stylish Hudson Valley compound? Keep it green and wild to create even more privacy in your private island of beauty? While on the subject of beauty, we’re quite smitten by the 1800 square foot A-Frame that’s included with all the land. A glass wall in the main room is pointed directly at the towering trees in the front yard, accessible by the front deck that lies beyond on the glass doors. Capitalizing on its natural views, the interior is streamlined and uncluttered with cathedral ceilings, stone hearth/wood stove, and a master bedroom in the point of the triangle with sliding glass doors.

Located two hours from NYC in northern Dutchess County and 20 minutes from Red Hook, Rhinebeck, and Tivoli. We were surprised at the relatively low taxes, around $5700/year.
