Today’s Upstater pick is a Cape Cod house, located about five minutes south of Coxsackie’s Reed Street Historic District.
The 1,725-square-foot house was built in 1955 and has a good mix of original and modern touches. The front yard has some nice landscaping and a long asphalt driveway.
The covered front porch is wide, with a wood floor and an unobstructed view of the front yard.
The family room has a wood floor, twin ceiling fans, and a bay window.
A pellet stove is tucked into a corner next to the window to supplement the heat on cold winter nights.
The oversized dining room also has a wood floor, and overhead track lighting.
The same track lighting appears in the kitchen. Dark wood cabinets are topped with solid-surface counters, offering lots of prep space. Lighter-toned cabinets surround the fridge. Stainless-steel appliances add to the modern edge, but overall, the kitchen has a country feel.
A half-bath has a modern vanity and a wood floor.
The family room is spacious, with a built-in bookcase/entertainment center.
Sliders at one end of the family room lead to…
…a wood deck with red-spindled railings. This outdoor entertainment space sports built-in benches in a bump-out that’s perfect for a dining area.
A main-floor laundry room is handy; the new owner might want to repaint if they don’t like lime green.
Head upstairs to a wood-floored hallway.
This teal-and-magenta bedroom probably could use updated paint, but it’s got a nice wood floor and interesting angles.
The second bedroom is more neutral but also has neat little nooks.
The primary bedroom is large, with a wood floor and a ceiling fan.
A carpeted adjacent space would work as a sitting room or extra storage space—the new owner could even consider adding an ensuite bath, if the plumbing allows it.
If that is possible, then this full bath, which has a single-sink vanity, brown tile on the floor, and white walls around the tub/shower, would serve just the two secondary bedrooms.
The detached, two-car garage is big and has two dormers on the second floor…
…which add light to the finished, carpeted gaming space.
Riverside Park on the Hudson River is five minutes from the house, along with the aforementioned Historic District’s restaurants and shopping.
