Car-Free Country House: Farm in Wassaic, $449,900

315 old route 22 amenia ny

The great thing about the hamlet of Wassaic (and its town, Amenia) in Dutchess County is that the Harlem Valley rail trail runs right through it, which provides commuters the change to use it to travel between their seventeen-acre farm and the Wassaic Metro North station on Route 22. And oh look! We just happened to have found a seventeen acre farm about a mile from the Wassaic Metro North! How serendipitous. We also understand the even a mile on a scenic rail trail can be stretch in bad weather, but when the weather’s good, what a way to travel. The farm includes six outbuildings, two of which are horse barns, making it an option for horse lovers. Speaking of which, are horses allowed on the rail trail? Is there a hitching post at the Metro North station? If so, we may have just solved getting home from the train without a car…

Car-Free Country House: Craftsman in Amenia, $259,900

This house definitely falls under the category of “Looks Better Outside Than Inside”, but that’s not to say that the interior doesn’t have potential. Because it does. Loads of it, in fact. The floors look great, and if you can manage to look past the whacky wallpaper in every single room, we think this place could be absolutely adorable. It’s located about 2.5 miles from the Wassaic Metro-North station, which is too far to hoof it, but Amenia does have a cab service (Delango Taxi) that makes runs from the station to local destinations. Other stuff in the village is walking distance, though, like a pizza place and the library; the grocery store, however, is less accessible since it’s nearly 2 miles away.

Victorian in Amenia, $229,900

Don’t you love a whole week of Car-Free country houses? We sure do. Pretty much anywhere you go in Amenia is close to a Metro North station, whether it’s the one in Wassaic or the Tenmile River station. And while most of the properties on the market in Amenia are multi-million dollar homes, we did manage to find some good bargains (like yesterday’s pick, for example, even though it might need some cosmetic work). Here’s one of them. Cute house, love the nice touches like the stained-glass window in the living room. The kitchen is a little dark for our taste, we’re not crazy about the carpeting or the wallpaper, and the lot size isn’t very big. But we do like the pretty porch and that huge attic space, not to mention its aforementioned proximity to the train station, as well as the rail trail. And that’s what we like about Amenia: You CAN get there from here.
