When we consider the concept of “more bang for your buck,” our minds don’t immediately go to Staatsburg. The Dutchess County riverside hamlet is situated in equestrian country, and when we think horses, we think dollar signs, the kinds of dollars signs you can throw at equestrian pursuits. Not the case in Staatsburg. The rural area between Rhinebeck and Hyde Park happens to have a few good deals on the market, and this 1830s farmhouse happens to be one of them. And what makes it a deal, despite its half-million-dollar price tag? Not only does the property come with a renovated 3,200-square-foot 19th-century farmhouse, it also has a separate country cottage resplendent with the knottiest of pine. The farmhouse retains tons of original details, such as crown moldings, built-ins, and wood accents, but also has plenty of updates in the kitchen and bathrooms. Seven parklike acres provide all the space you need for enjoying the outdoors (stream included), and that bluestone patio will make you the envy of your citified friends. Located approximately 20 minutes south of Rhinebeck.

696 Centre Road, Staatsburg (Houlihan Lawrence)
