Ready to feel refreshed? This modernized Victorian house in the center of Rhinebeck village is a cool breeze on a hot summer’s day.
Old and musty Victorian homes don’t stand a chance in a town like Rhinebeck. The village’s residential neighborhoods boast these elder beauties around just about every corner, and this one stands as a prime example of what happens when you take a c.1860s house and give it a contemporary spin.
The 2,578-square foot interior has been stripped down and rebuilt in all the right places, while original details like pine floors, trim, and built-ins remain to remind us of its roots.
Speaking of being rebuilt in all the right places, the kitchen features a seriously gourmet upgrade, with custom fixtures like a Wolf stainless steel French Top, soapstone counter tops, and two dining areas.
Two sitting rooms, one with a working fireplace, round out the ground floor. Up the grand main staircase are three bedrooms, one of which is the master suite…
…as well as a fourth room that could be another bedroom or serve as a home office, studio, or guest room.
At nearly a half-acre in size, the property offers lots of backyard space with a screened-in porch, patio, and lush landscaping. Finally, the detached two-car garage/carriage house with an upper-level loft room/office/rec room.
Its civilized location allows for strolling to village shops, restaurants, and the farmer’s market. If you’ve got a car, that opens up your options even more to include hopping on the Amtrak in Rhinecliff, or exploring the Berkshires to the east and the Catskills to the west.
