This Week on Upstater: Buying a Home in Beacon, Cold Spring, and Garrison

  |  May 14, 2018

This week, Upstater is east-of-Hudson, traveling the rails from southern Dutchess to Putnam County…

And, as always, we’re in search of the best residential real estate currently on the market. In terms of sheer eye-candy, the area seldom fails us, particularly if money is no object. While you can still find a bargain or two in Beacon, Cold Spring and Garrison offer a much greater challenge to a home buyer’s budget, don’t even get us started on the property taxes.

So, what we’re saying is…let’s pretend we don’t have a budget.*record scratch*

We know. We’re crazy. Seeking out more-bang-for-your-buck residential real estate is practically a compulsion for us. However, in order to feature our favorites, we are compelled to seek out some luxury listings, like this Garrison property we featured last year:


In terms of what Beacon, Cold Spring, and Garrison have to offer, it’s a lot, whether you’re looking for a property right in the heart of Beacon’s cultural/commuter center, Cold Spring’s antique homes surrounding its main street, or Garrison’s quiet residential streets packed with old-school charm. And, if commuting is, indeed, part of what you’re looking for, all three are strong in that department, too.

Ready to take a gander at some grand homes on the east shores of the Hudson River? Join us on Upstater all week long as we explore Beacon, Cold Spring, and Garrison.

Stay tuned…
