Tivoli Greek Revival, $599,000

  |  May 18, 2012

We know; the first rule of Tivoli is that we don’t talk about Tivoli. We’ve basically been sworn to secrecy about this great little village in Dutchess County on the Hudson River, which has been pretty easy to do, since there’s not a whole lot for sale in Tivoli…ever. Tivoli residents aren’t interested in leaving Tivoli. Good for them! Bad for us. But we recently stumbled across this adorable Greek Revival number on the website of one of our favorite purveyors of real estate porn in Columbia, Dutchess and Greene Counties, Gary DiMauro Real Estate. We avoid playing favorites with real estate companies, but come on. It’s hard to ignore the cool houses on this site.

But back to the Tivoli Greek Revival. It’s lovely. Pricey, but lovely. Nice blend of old facade with new interior, lot size is over two acres and borders a stream, close to the village but still on enough land to make it feel a bit more private. And the back deck is a big selling point. Disadvantages?  Price (nearly $300/square foot) and fairly hefty tax burden. It is Tivoli, though. Once you come, you may never leave (cue the Twilight Zone music).
