Crafty Cedar Craftsman in Poughkeepsie’s South Side, $309K

This Poughkeepsie Craftsman house is exactly what we look for an antique home: Well-preserved, durable, and attractive as hell.

We’ve been perusing vintage homes on-the-market in Poughkeepsie, NY this week on Upstater, and we’re just about ready to pack our boxes and relocate. Homes like this 1920s Craftsman are to blame.

You’ll find original black oak wood work, pocket sliding doors, and brick fireplace with new flue and liner in the living room and formal dining room…

…and, the kitchen comes with a bay window and stainless steel appliances, but it could use updated cabinetry and flooring. A charming butler’s secret staircase connects the kitchen to the second and third floors.

It might not be so easy to see from the exterior, but this is a spacious house with 2,200 square feet, four bedrooms, and four baths. Includes some updated features like refinished wood floors, new-ish roof (installed in 2004), high-efficiency Navien water heater, and new furnace just a year old. The baths have been updated, too.

The quarter-acre lot comes with a brick patio that could use some clean-up and a few repairs, but when you finish them, you’ll have an incredibly cool, cleaned-up brick patio.

Perched on a slope with stone steps leading to the front door, this house is situated on a quiet residential street lined with flowering trees, on the west side of Hooker Avenue, less than ten minutes from the Poughkeepsie train station and the Mid-Hudson Bridge.
