Former School House-Turned-Residence in Rhinebeck, NY, $495K

This Rhinebeck school house has come a long way since its c.1825 roots.

Built in the Greek Revival style popular with churches and schools back in the 19th-century, it’s now the cutest two-bedroom cottage this side of the Taconic State Parkway. And, it even comes with a more recent addition to the back of the house, providing a breezy, open great room with custom tile floors, walls of windows, and its own entrance to the back patio.

The older part of the house is equally attractive, sporting a contemporary renovation that pays respects to its Greek Revival origins with period-appropriate molding, field stone fireplace, and wood floors.

Stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops provide a gourmet kitchen surrounded by custom cabinetry…

…and, each of the 1,680-square-foot interior’s two bedrooms come with a full, en suite bath with updated fixtures.

Situated on a 1.34-acre property just minutes east of Rhinebeck village, which offers restaurants, galleries, shops, live performance, yoga, taverns, Thai take-out…you know Rhinebeck…or do you? This week on Upstater, we’ll be heading to the historic Dutchess County town known for its close-knit ties, walkable village streets, and attractive (and somewhat pricey) residential real estate offerings.

Rhinebeck house hunters, stay tuned…
