This Three-Bedroom Cape is Close to Everything That’s Cool in Rhinebeck: $750K

  |  November 3, 2022

Rhinebeck village is a beautiful part of Dutchess County. Its historic downtown is home to the Beekman Arms & Delamater Inn and shops like Bread Alone and Oblong Books.

Today’s house—a 1,942-square-foot Cape Cod—is within walking distance of all of that.

It sits on one of the prettiest streets in the village, too, and has a roomy, shaded front porch to take it all in.

The foyer and stairs are hardwood. Off the foyer is the kitchen.

It’s a bit dated, if we had to be honest, but it’s got good bones. In addition to the L-shaped workspace, there’s a wall-hung table for snacking.

A pass-through offers a view into this dining room. It’s got hardwood floors, a big bow window, and a vintage chandelier.

The living room has a brick-lined fireplace, vintage radiators, and hardwood flooring. It’s bright with a few six-over-six paned windows, and a glass-windowed door…

…that leads to this terracotta-floored sunroom.

A sunny den is also on the main floor and has its own door to the outside.

Like all Capes, a bedroom resides on the first floor, too. This one is big: There’s tons of room, even with two twin beds and a big dresser. It, too, is sunny and has hardwood flooring.

The bathroom has great black-and-white geometric penny tile on the floor and similarly toned tile from the floor to chair-rail height. A dresser has been converted into a single-sink vanity, and glass doors conceal a tub/shower combo.

Upstairs, the primary bedroom is also large. It’s got beige wall-to-wall carpeting and lots of windows. The house was built in 1947, and it has been well-maintained.

The second bedroom is tucked into the dormer upstairs and is also sunny.

They share this bathroom, which in its heyday must have been a jewel with its sunken jetted tub, white wainscoting, and large, single-sink vanity. It’s a little dated but it’s large enough for a smashing renovation if the new owner is up to it.

A two-car, detached garage is at the end of the driveway. The house sits on a third of an acre of nicely landscaped property that includes beautiful mature trees. In addition to its proximity to downtown, it’s also not far from the Amtrak station and is under a two-hour drive to Manhattan.
