Enchanting Stone Cottage in Hopewell Junction, Ripe for an Update, $360K

Imagine what a fresh remodel would do for this southern Dutchess cottage on 6.75 acres…

It’s durable as the day is long, and completely turn-key, to boot. But, if you were so inclined, you could give the 1,840-square-foot interior a modern, updated look. Take up some carpeting, de-wallpaper some walls, upgrade some fixtures, and boom! You’ve got yourself one dreamy Hudson Valley getaway an hour away from NYC.

Meanwhile, the kitchen comes with newer appliances and high ceilings, there’s a first-floor laundry room, and an upper level could be used as master bedroom with private entrance. The listing says, “lives like a 2 bedroom with a full finished attic.” Also includes two full baths.

Thrown in for good measure is a furnished workshop, just in case you’re considering giving home-based income a try. Additionally, the garage includes a second-story loft, and the listing touts a detached home office. All lawn equipment and power tools come included with the property.

Not quite sold yet? Take a look at the swimming pond, which you can see from the upper porch of the house.

There is a sentence in the listing that gives us pause, however: “Get paid by Spring to live here – ask me how.” Does that mean there’s a cell tower on the property? Or that Sprint wants to put one there? Or power lines? Or proposed power lines? Or something else entirely? Very curious, indeed.

Regardless, this property has charm and seclusion by the bucketful, and we think it warrants a close look. Thinking of taking a closer look at southern Dutchess County, in general? Hey, we can’t blame you. Check out this property we featured recently, as well as this one. Stick around for the rest of the week for more from southern Dutchess County!
