Garfield Place in Poughkeepsie is a lovely historic neighborhood full of houses like this Second Empire Victorian. While it’s not next door to the train station, it’s only about a mile away, which equates to a $5 cab ride to and from the train. Walking distance to the local library, a corner mini-mart, an elementary school, and several churches. The house itself if darn impressive, situated on over a quarter-acre of land (not bad for city living) and includes a carriage house. Take a peek inside, you’ll find a whopping 11 fireplaces (only 4 of them work), original moldings and woodwork, and 9 bedrooms. We love this house, but if you’re looking for something cheaper and closer to the train station, allow us to direct your attention to this cute little pad near the waterfront. And yes, we know; Poughkeepsie taxes are a bit nuts.
