The price alone is worth pausing for a look at this c.1690 Colonial in Pleasant Valley. But what of all those “old house problems” that come with a venerable number like this one? Push those worries aside, homebuyers, because this house received the works about a decade ago: Plumbing, electric, heating system (hydro air), roof, well, septic & leachfields, R30 insulation, not to mention those gorgeous pine and chestnut wood floors. The kitchen has also been renovated and includes stainless steel appliances.

The good news, however, doesn’t end with this artful redo’s mix of old-fashioned and modern. The property includes nearly an acre of land near Wappingers Creek, right outside of Pleasant Valley hamlet, about five minutes to the nearest Taconic Parkway exit. While the original 17th-century builders didn’t appreciate its eventual convenience to traveling downstate, but we most certainly do.

Includes 2 beds/1.5 baths and 1,573 square feet.
