Stake Your Claim on an Acre Near Breakneck Ridge in Cold Spring, $439,000

Breakneck Ridge in Putnam County is known for its unparalleled views of the Hudson Valley. It’s also known as insanely steep and challenging, which is part of the price you have to pay for views such as these. The good news is, you can still get those gorgeous views from nearby Bull Hill, a hike that’s still steep but doesn’t require hikers to scramble over rocky inclines. When you’re finished with those hikes, take a quick look at Little Stony Point on the shores of the Hudson River.

This 1930s shingle-sided cottage is situated about five miles away from all of those places. Even closer? The Cold Spring train station, 1.5 miles from the front door. That makes this property an ideal place to come home to after hiking and exploring east of the Hudson.

Includes two bedrooms and 842 square feet, perfect for a couple or small family looking for a weekend place. Interior features we like: Stone fireplace in the living room, hardwood floors, and enclosed front porch/mud room. Exterior features we love: A full acre of land right in Cold Spring village. The property consists of two adjacent plots of land, one of which includes a two-car garage.
