Glorious Colonial Revival c.1910 on over an acre with charming artist studio/office and steps from the Hudson Valley Rail Trail. This grand house has all the classical understated Colonial Revival features. The entrance is centered and accented with columns and an inviting covered front porch. You are greeted by a massive oak door flanked by 2 sidelights. The center hall entry has turning staircase and stained glass windows. The downstairs is open, almost open concept in design. Many large windows (including Palladian windows in multiple rooms), 3 sets of french doors and high ceilings all add to the grand scale of these rooms. The stately living room boasts a working fireplace. There is a charming powder room and off the dining room is a butler’s pantry as well as a back staircase. The large eat-in kitchen which was a later addition offers more vintage charm and 2 additional porches. And, of course, one of the jewels of the home is all of the beautiful woodwork. The downstairs has the original oak floors and the woodwork is crafted of American Cherry, very unusual. The upstair floors are the original heart of pine and the woodwork is oak. All woodwork is original and unpainted. The light fixtures are restored period lights. Upstairs you will find 3 bedrooms including the master bedroom which features the home’s second working fireplace. Also a large modern bathroom plus a finished attic with 2 additional rooms. Big bonus is the charming artist studio (24'x14') with electric and plumbing. The owner completely transformed the property with the lush perennial gardens. Many types of flowering trees, bushes and flowers abound such as peony, hydrangea, lilac, wisteria, azalea and more. Great full-time residence or weekend getaway. Less than 80 miles from NYC and about 10 minutes from the Metro North/Amtrak Trains in Poughkeepsie.

This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
