Location and Price Make this Dutchess County House a Real Find, $89,900

Hyde Park home

Bordered historic landmarks, the Hudson River, and peaceful rural countryside, this Hyde Park home goes for $66-per-square foot. 

Sure, it could use some TLC both outside and within the 1,360-square-foot interior, but overall, this edition of Five-Figure Friday is a total steal in a picturesque location close to Rhinebeck village, Rhinecliff hamlet, the Poughkeepsie Metro-North, and the Hudson River.

First off is the glass-enclosed front porch with field stone support columns and foundation…

The kitchen will need an extensive overhaul from the tile flooring to the cabinetry to the ceilings, but we like the little adjoining breakfast nook with windows on three sides.

And, on the second floor, the home’s three bedrooms are surprisingly large with attractive hardwood floors and cast iron radiators.

Head just a few minutes west and you’ll be in Staatsburg hamlet, which is next-door neighbors with Mills Memorial State Park, Mills Mansion, Dinsmore Point, Dinsmore Golf Course, and Norrie Point Environmental Center. From here, if there’s no traffic, it could take your as little as two hours to drive to Manhattan from this quiet, countryside locale in rural Dutchess County, NY.
