Rich, calming colors and textures – not to mention a cadre of fabulous details – make this renovated midcentury home in Poughkeepsie something kinda special.

This week on Upstater, we’re embracing modern/contemporary homes with jaunty details in the Hudson Valley and Catskills. With that said, this home displays all of the iconic hallmarks of a midcentury modern house but comes with modern twists around just about every corner, starting with the inviting foyer…

…which leads up the stairs to the main floor, a light-soaked, wide-open space that joins the living room (dual-sided fireplace included), formal dining room, gourmet kitchen, and exterior deck – accessible through a retractable wall –  together in glorious harmony.

Speaking of the kitchen, the stainless steel appliances and polished tile back splash make their own splash…

…and, the living room that is 100% midcentury modern minus the 1960s orange shag and dark wood paneling, making it feel fresh and updated.

The 2,560-square-foot home features three bedrooms, one of which is the master suite complete with a massive closet/dressing room and spa bath with pebble glass shower.

However, the other two bedrooms and baths are no slouches, with beamed ceilings, copious natural light, and custom tiling.

Adjoining the house is a former garage transformed into a family/rumpus room, exercise room with lockers, and huge workout floor perfect for yoga, martial arts, Zumba, Jazzercise, Tae Bo…take your pick!

Choose from two outdoor spaces to enjoy: A deck attached to the main portion of the house with a pool and hot tub, or an expansive roof-top deck on the garage/family room/home gym.

Situated on 1.1 acres in the Spackenkill, NY neighborhood of Kingwood Park, less than five miles from Poughkeepsie’s center.
