831-833 Bulls Head Road, Rhinebeck: $799K

This c.1854 Rhinebeck Victorian house with the front-facing bay windows of an Italianate has got it all, including two guest cottages and a pond.

You’ll never need to worry about having enough room for guests again. The main house, which was renovated in 2005, includes three bedrooms, two full and one half-bath, and copious room to gather with friends and family in the front living room, formal dining room, or the sunroom/family room, a recent addition to the home. Also comes with bay windows, pocket doors, fireplaces, and wood floors throughout.

Prefer the Great Outdoors? Step out onto the rear deck and terrace that overlook the backyard lawn and pond.

The upstairs bedrooms are practically massive, resplendent with bay windows and nifty built-in storage.

Give your guests the option of their own private accommodations in the 940-square-foot, two-bedroom guest cottage with wood stove and gourmet kitchen. Or, you could rent it out and use the income to the cover the five-figure tax bill!

The second cottage is a light-soaked studio, built on the site of the property’s original barn, with wood floors and skylights. It would make a perfect for a yoga/art/music studio or additional guest accommodations/rental income.

According to the listing, the 2.47-acre property was once home to a grist mill, and the old stone walls still remain on the land.

Rhinebeck village is about ten minutes away from here, and the Rhinecliff Amtrak station is a 15-minutes’ drive. The Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, the Dutchess County Fairgrounds, Millbrook Winery, and the FDR National Historic Site are also within minutes of this house. Need to get to the city by car? Hop on the Taconic State Parkway, five minutes to the east.
