Eye-Catching Details Make the Deal in These Northern Dutchess County Properties
Each of these homes has charming touches that go beyond the basics.
713 Smithfield Rd, Millerton
|Lot Size (Acres)||3|
Smithfield Lodge was built in 1962 and has been renovated with details that catch your eye everywhere you look.
The sweeping curve of a custom iron-and-wood staircase dominates the foyer, nicely separating the entrance and the spacious living room, which has a woodstove. French doors lead to a rear deck overlooking a creek. A first-floor master bedroom is located off the living room; its master bath has a huge walk-in tiled shower. Two more bedrooms (sharing a Jack-and-Jill bath) are upstairs.
Walk through the kitchen — which has a chef’s stove and a bow window over the sink — to access the dining room and family room, with another fireplace. The dining room opens to a patio, while sliders in the family room and the master bedroom open to the rear deck.
Although secluded on three acres, Smithfield Lodge is only a seven-minute drive to the shops on Main Street and less than 20 minutes to the Wassaic train station; a good year-round or weekend retreat, it has a basement studio that’s perfect for an artist.
21 Meddaugh Rd, Pleasant Valley
|Lot Size (Acres)||1.8|
The heart of this home is the open-concept kitchen and great room. Outfitted with walls of cabinetry, the kitchen has a large center island for gatherings, stainless-steel appliances (including double wall ovens), and lots of windows for natural light.
Hardwood floors run throughout the kitchen into the great room, which has a dining area and a living room with triple French doors leading to a screened porch. Tongue-and-groove paneling and stately wooden beams highlight the vaulted ceiling.
Situated on nearly two acres, the property has beautiful stone walls running throughout, a family room with a stone fireplace, a master bedroom and three additional bedrooms, a big yard, and a pool for the summer months — making it perfect for family fun.
The home is in the Arlington school district, which ranks among the top in Dutchess County and the state. The Poughkeepsie train station is about 20 minutes away; if you’d rather commute by car, the home’s garage has plenty of room for your rides.
