1930s Cape Cod Jewel for a Rock-Bottom Price of $190K

This sweet Poughkeepsie Cape Cod looks like it made someone a very happy home, indeed. 

One thing we really love about a Cape Cod bungalow is that it’s basically an optical illusion: Forever looking compact from the exterior, weirdly spacious on the inside. Fans of Doctor Who might call this “TARDIS-like.”*

This particular TARDIS is 1,600 square feet with two large bedrooms and an open-scheme living room, dining room, and kitchen. A strategically-located wood stove in the midst of it all should keep it cozy come wintertime…and by “cozy,” we do not mean “cramped.” More like “cozy blanket” cozy.

This is, after all, a Craftsman cottage, so built-ins, French doors, hardwood floors, and original wood trim come included.

The kitchen’s been renovated with embossed ceilings, granite counters, and a copper farmhouse sink…

…and, in the master bedroom, there are three closets plus an en suite bath complete with Jacuzzi tub and dual vanities.

The roof and windows are on the newer side, and the house comes with city water and sewer, plus natural gas heat. Includes a lot size of over an acre surrounded by stone walls and greenery, perfect for shielding the front porch and back patio and providing privacy. Enjoy the seasonal views from this cottage’s perch…

Here’s an added bonus: This property abuts College Hill Park, which offers a natural setting with a golf course, pavilion, rock garden, lake fishing, and walking trails. It’s practically the property’s backyard.
