We nearly passed over this one in favor of some more grandiose properties while looking around Taghkanic this week, but we’re glad our instincts told us to stop and take a closer look. The interior has so many aspects that we enjoy, like a snappy flow that’s reminiscent of a mid-mod (it was built in 1961), a cherry-red wood stove as the focal point of the white living room with shiny wood floors, and a kitchen that doesn’t look like a Lowe’s display. It’s also a bit larger than it appears, over 2,000 square feet, and it’s on two acres. It’s in the hamlet of Elizaville, which is on the other side of the Taconic State Parkway from Taghkanic, and it seems easy to get to from the Parkway itself. It’s located less than 2 hours from NYC.
Lot Size: 2 acres
