A Modern Home in Dutchess County…Dash of Whimsy Included for $795K

This super-cool Red Hook Modern home comes with a whole-lotta style and some sass to go with it. 

There’s something a little “Lost Boys Neverland Hide-Out” about this corrugated metal, wood, and glass house: the conjoined shipping containers that comprise the structure are a re-imagining of objects meant for a difference purpose, and the focus on outdoor space (hot tub included) is nothing but a good time waiting to happen.

In other words, if Upstater could design a clubhouse, it might look a lot like this.

In fact, that dash of whimsy and fun is exactly what were looking for among the real estate listings this week, coupled with modern or contemporary style. We’ve been looking at a lot of older homes lately, so we’re in the mood for something a bit newer, but we also like a splash of color, character, fun, and excitement. Does that sound appealing to you? Make sure you stick around this week for more of our favorites from the local listings.

Meanwhile, back to the clubhouse in question.

In spite of its fun appearance, this is no makeshift clubhouse by any stretch. Its 2,580-square-foot layout is sophisticated and includes plaster and metal walls, polished cement floors with radiant heat, floating stairway, and a balcony for all three bedrooms. And, all three baths come equipped with spa-like fixtures.

We love the walls of glass, open areas, and colorful slider doors…

…as well as its private location amidst trees and fields, just 1.3 miles from one of the Hudson Valley’s sweetest small towns (Tivoli, NY, northern Dutchess County, to be exact) and about two miles from the Bard College campus. Red Hook and Rhinebeck villages are also minutes away by car.
