We’re skirting the boundary of the town of Rhinebeck today with this bilevel ranch in the southeastern section of town.
It has four bedrooms and one-and-a-half baths. The house was built in 1973 but has some updates.
The main level has mainly hardwood floors, with some tile in the kitchen and bathroom. Check out that cool railing. The brick face on the stairwell’s wall is interesting, but the next owner might want to change that out, if possible, or repaint over the distressed effect.
The kitchen is the size you’d expect in a typical bilevel ranch (read: kinda small), but it’s been updated with a marble-look ceramic tile floor, granite counters, and stainless-steel appliances. Looks like there might be room for a rolling island as well.
The dining area can fit a table much bigger than this four-top, and there are sliders out to a back deck. The overhead pendant lighting is a nice modern update.
The main level has three bedrooms, all with hardwood floors. The primary bedroom has sliders out to the back deck, too.
All that the bedrooms would need is a fresh coat of paint, if you’re not into the pastels. But the lightfilled rooms are in good condition.
The main-floor bath has been updated, too, but it looks like more paint is needed to finish the job behind the toilet.
Downstairs in the walkout basement, you’ll find a retro den with sliders to the outside, a fourth bedroom that also has sliders to the backyard, and this family room with more of that exposed, distressed brick.
In a break from the shabby-chic effect of the brick, this downstairs bedroom has tidy beadboard walls and wall-to-wall carpeting, that probably helps keep the space a bit cozier.
The half-bath downstairs is pocket-sized, but updated.
A detached garage is large enough for one car or just tools and toys. There’s plenty of room to build a bigger garage, since the property encompasses five acres. Even though it’s on the edge of the town, it’s still only a few minutes’ drive to the center of the village.
