This week, Upstater is cruising along the Hudson Riverfront in the city of Peekskill.

Today’s house is perched on a cul-de-sac that’s just a 10-minute walk to downtown restaurants and shops. It’s an Elizabethan Tudor, built in 1927, that has tons of charming details.

The front porch is open and comfortable.

Check out the stained glass crest in the front door!

The living room has fairytale details like that carved staircase, stucco-and-brick fireplace, and diamond-pane glass. The wood floors look a bit worn, but otherwise the house is in good shape.

A huge picture window in the living room brings in lots of light.

The dining room has doors to the front porch on one wall, and doors to the backyard on the opposite wall. There’s a good amount of original woodwork here, from the doors to the trim and baseboards.

Just off the dining room is a breakfast room with a built-in banquette. Blue and white tiles sport whimsical illustrations of fruit.

There are butler-pantry-style cabinets here, too, and a beautifully detailed terra-cotta floor.

The flooring and tiling continue into the kitchen, which has been updated with stainless-steel appliances. The cabinetry and countertops are a bit dated; it might be tough to find a color combination that complements both the floor and the tiles, so the new owner might need to make a decision on redoing something.

The first-floor bedroom is being used as an office. It’s got a wood floor, a vintage, cast-iron radiator, and great windows.

The first-floor full bath has a shower and a petite corner sink tucked into very rustic cabinetry. A row of tiles above the sink depicts birds and other wildlife.

Three bedrooms are upstairs, and all of them are a good size (with the house measuring 2,217 square feet, all the rooms are spacious). This one has a cove ceiling, three sets of windows, and a hardwood floor. Recessed lighting in the blue-painted ceiling offers lots of light.

This bedroom is equally charming, with diamond-pane glass offering views from a built-in desk across from the bed.

The last bedroom has the same wood flooring and pristine, vintage trim.

The full bath upstairs has been renovated and has a glassed-in tub/shower with a subway-tile wall; gray marble flooring; and a modern vanity.

The basement level has a two-car garage, a laundry room, and three storage rooms that could be reimagined as game rooms or entertainment caves.

The house is on a third of an acre, with gorgeous gardens and stonework sprinkled throughout the property.

It truly is a charming home, and probably won’t last long on the market.
