  |  February 13, 2018

This Spackenkill NY house might be from the 1970s, but a fresh, top-to-bottom renovation makes it feel new…

It’s not easy to find a house in the Spackenkill Union Free School District in the town of Poughkeepsie. Therefore, we get the impression that people are sticking around the area, perhaps because the public schools are so good.

In fact, the Spackenkill school district ranks not only as the best school district in Dutchess County, it’s number 79 on’s top 100 best school districts in the country. Poughkeepsie might surprise you if you decide to take a closer look. For now, however, here’s a slice of real estate located within the Spackenkill school district and family-suitable.

The split-level Ranch includes 2,700 square feet of space, four bedrooms, and three baths. And, it comes with a lengthy list of new features including quartz kitchen countertops and all new appliances, wood floors and carpeting, windows, roof, furnace, central A/C, and driveway. We think it’s safe to say that this house is more new than not.

Downstairs lie more bedrooms and an additional family room with fireplace.

Wit a half-acre, this is a big yard for a residential neighborhood. And, the screened-in porch plus deck make it cook-out-friendly.
