Take the Road Less Traveled to this Northeastern Dutchess County Cottage, $250K

  |  July 31, 2017

As we dive into Beautiful Yards and Homes Week, here’s a Dutchess County cottage with one doozy of a yard. Six acres of land situated minutes from the Massachusetts and Connecticut borders offer plenty of wide open spaces to seek privacy from a frantic world.

Speaking of open spaces, the 1190 square foot, three-bedroom cottage is a c.1942 Ranch home with an open concept floor plan, vaulted ceilings bedecked with skylights, sliding glass doors, and a kitchen open to the dining room. The screened-in porch provides an additional, three-season family room, mosquito-free al fresco dining room, or mudroom. Our favorite feature of this home is the master suite with private bath and double sliding glass doors that open onto a small porch. We wouldn’t mind waking up and having our morning coffee from the seclusion of our own covered porch, not one bit.

Let’s go back outside and survey the surroundings: Shade trees to keep things cool, benches + firepit for autumn bonfires. and, according to the listing, includes a tiny tea house in the woods where you can find total seclusion. Situated 20 minutes east of Rhinebeck village, 30 minutes from Poughkeepsie, and about 2 hours from NYC.

205 Gun Club Road, Millerton (Coldwell Banker Homes)
