This Poughkeepsie Dutch Colonial home is filled with vintage touches…but wait until you see what’s in the basement.

Since its construction in the late 1920s, this four-bedroom abode has been outfitted with a lenghty list of cool features, starting in the living room with arched alcove, wood floors, built-ins, stained glass, and a gas fireplace.

French doors open onto the tiled hallway, across which is the formal dining room with crown molding, inlaid wood floors, and a wall of shuttered windows…

…connected to an oversized kitchen with slate tile, new appliances, and a pantry.

While the four second-floor bedrooms are carpeted, the listing assures that there’s hardwood underneath. There’s also a full bath upstairs.

The finished walk-up attic provides even more space for either storage or use, and the lower-level basement includes a built-in wet bar with a copper sink that, according to the listing, dates back to Prohibition Days. How cool is that?

Sure, the exterior needs a fresh coat of paint (we love the kelly-green!), and the second-floor balcony isn’t safe to stand on (get it repaired and take your coffee out there!), this cutie is easy on the eyes. Furthermore, it sits on a landscape property situated just a skip-and-a-jump from the Vassar College campus, a great place to walk on a nice day, in south Poughkeepsie, NY.
