Today’s Upstater home is in Pleasant Valley, a Dutchess County town that lives up to its moniker with pretty houses and a walkable Main Street in the heart of town.

This house is hefty, measuring 6,085 square feet, and has four bedrooms and 4.5 baths. The exterior has a “little red schoolhouse” look with charcoal trim around brick-red siding.

The front portico supports a second-floor balcony, and has bluestone steps leading to the front door.

The foyer is large, with a tile floor. The center-hall staircase has a curved banister.

The great room’s wood-plank ceiling rises to cathedral height, with skylights adding light and panache. The floor is a rich color similar to the ceiling. A fireplace juts from a wall next to the kitchen.

Stainless-steel appliances are like gemstones set in the deep wood cabinetry. A center island has four pendant lights above and seating for four.

This main-floor primary bedroom is bright and sunny with a light hardwood floor.

A peaked-ceiling sunroom is attached to the primary bedroom. It has a tile floor, casement windows, and a set of sliders out to the back deck.

The ensuite bath has a soaking tub, separate shower, and (not shown) a bidet along with a toilet and vanity.

This bedroom is more basic, with a nice hardwood floor and white walls.

This bath has built-in linen shelving, a white vanity, and a shower stall. The cobalt blue floor tile is a nice touch.

This peachy-toned room has rows of casement windows on two walls.

A loft at the top of the stairs has sculptured floral carpeting and a railing overlooking the great room.

The second primary bedroom, on the second floor, has wall-to-wall carpeting and recessed lighting in the angled ceiling.

This door leads to the balcony above the front portico.

The ensuite bath here has a platform soaking tub and separate shower, all tiled in the same light-beige tile as the floor. A wood-clad sauna offers even more respite.

The finished basement has lots of room for recreation, with a beamed ceiling, alcoves for storage, and hardwood flooring.

A bath down here has a stall shower.

A beautifully woodworked ceiling shelters a kidney-shaped indoor pool. The natatorium is surrounded by walls of floor-to-ceiling windows.

The back deck overlooks a verdant (if slightly overgrown) backyard.

There’s plenty of room here for outdoor seating and a firepit.

The house sits on 1.81 acres, including this bit of Wappinger Creek.

It’s just a four-minute drive to downtown (hit the Publick House for a sip), 10 minutes to local produce at Adams Fairacre Farms, and 15 minutes to the heart of Poughkeepsie and brews at Kings Court Brewing Company.
