This renovated Colonial house sits on a vibrant residential street in the middle of Poughkeepsie, close to local restaurants, venues, schools, and shops.

Look, Poughkeepsie, NY is not NYC, nor does it pretend to be. What Poughkeepsie does offer, though, is take-out. Good take-out, not just pizza, as well as theater and live music (as soon as it’s possible, anyway), thrift stores, supermarkets, record shops, parks, public transportation…you get the idea. So, if you want to live in the Mid-Hudson Valley but still want a small slice of city living, Poughkeepsie is one place to find it. And, this spacious, family-friendly home is right in the center of it all.

Furthermore, you won’t be paying NYC prices for it, considering it’s listed for around $109-per-square-foot. Not too shabby for a 2,100-square-foot home with five bedrooms, not to mention a snazzy makeover that includes refinished hardwood floors and fresh paint, not to mention a new roof, windows, high-efficiency furnace, hybrid water heater, and 200-amp electrical, and plumbing.

Perhaps the most obvious improvement is the kitchen, where all of the counters, cabinets, and appliances have been replaced or upgraded, as well as the new durable vinyl flooring. This adjoins a big formal dining room perfect for family gatherings.

In addition to five bedrooms, there are also two full baths, both of which have also been remodeled…

…and a walk-up attic that is ready for a thorough refurbishing of its own.

The fenced-in backyard is plenty big enough for a furry friend, outdoor cookouts, and gardening.

From here, it’s easy to get in and out of Poughkeepsie via main roadways, and the Metro-North station is just two miles away.
