Garrison Mid-Mod, $499,845

 58 winston lane garrison ny2

One of these days, we’re going to collect enough mid-century modern listings to do an entire week of them. Meanwhile, we’ll just have to be satisfied with posting them when we find one, like this one in Garrison, Putnam County. Garrison’s real estate prices are expensive across the board. It’s an upscale area that remains popular among those weekending north of the city, so prices reflect that. It’s also bucolic, with few paved roads and river views. So while a half-a-mill seems kind of steep for a 2 bed/2 bath Ranch, it’s typical for the area. But hey, at least it’s easy on the eyes. It’s deceptively spacious, has the mid-mod signature trademark of tons of windows, and it’s located on over 3 acres.

Putnam Valley Lakehouse, $649,000

206 lake shore road putnam valley ny2

Putnam Valley is the Land o’ Lakes of the Upstater region. There are lots of properties to choose from, but we wouldn’t recommend it as a place to go bargain-hunting. You might be better off in Sullivan County for those. But, as we always say, looking is free, so let’s have a look at this sharp contemporary on Roaring Brook Lake. It’s got an open floor plan with a nice sense of flow, not to mention some serious water views. Also includes stone patios and a lakeside sauna.

RoTW: Garrison Mid-Mod, $2,900/mo.

7 south schuylter lane garrison ny

A mid-mod, an honest to goodness mid-century modern! Not one built in the 70s or 80s to look like a mid-mod, but one that was actually constructed in the 1950s. Looks like it could be a beaut, too. Floor to ceiling windows, a cool stand-alone fireplace, lots of light, and situated on Cortlandt Lake in Garrison, Putnam County. The only picture of the kitchen was so blurry it wasn’t worth posting, but it seems serviceable. Listing says the exterior doors of the kitchen slide open to create a screened-in outdoor dining room. Cool.

RoTW: Carmel Colonial, $2,500/mo.

271 daisy lane carmel ny

We just adore the look of this renovated 1930s Colonial in the Putnam County town of Carmel. The exterior quaint and charming, while the interior is modern and sweet. The house is situated on a ridge with a view of Croton Falls Reservoir, and while the property size is pretty small, the house seems to be surrounded by trees and shrubs which should go a long way to ensuring a touch of privacy. There are balconies on both ground and second floors, a wood stove in the living room, and a massive kitchen with tons of storage space.
