Colonial Farmhouse in Verdant Putnam Valley, $400K

  |  August 19, 2021

Bring your design ideas to this three-bedroom Putnam Valley farmhouse, situated on eight acres just a short jaunt from Peekskill, NY. 

In spite of its need for updating, this 1,788-square-foot home is fully functional and live-able. Move in, and start jazzing things up, starting with the enclosed porch. Would you keep it, or would you open it up and transform it into a rocking-chair porch?

The main floor features an open scheme and an antique wood stove with brick chimney. Attend to those 1970s-era drop ceiling tiles to add some headroom.

While the kitchen might be slightly retro, it still works where it counts and comes with a ton of storage space…

Up on the second floor, more bay windows abound in the home’s three bedrooms…

The third-story walk-up attic is unfinished, but it could be renovated to make a top-floor suite, home office, play room, or media room.

According to the listing, the 8.3-acre plot is subdivideable, but if you’re drooling over that old red barn in a few of the photos, sorry to disappoint you. It does not come with this property. However, what does come with this property is a rolling country backdrop, located just minutes from the Peekskill Metro-North station.
