Car-Free Country House: Brewster Village Victorian, $190,000

2617 carmel avenue brewster ny

We admittedly don’t know as much about the Putnam County village of Brewster as we do other places in the county, but we do know that this sweet Victorian is about a 9 minute walk from the Brewster Metro North Station. We also know that it has a smaller-than-normal sized lot, even for a residential area, but that it’s convenient to stuff in the village, like the elementary school and what looks like a wee park directly across the street (we’re going strictly by GMAP sleuthing here). The local IGA is about a half-mile away. Comes with a detached garage. Any of our readers care to give us the scoop on Brewster?

Private Island In Putnam Lake, Brewster, $1.25 Million

Not that we have much to compare it to, but $1,250,000 seems like a bargain for an entire island, even if it’s a small one in a private lake. Not surprisingly, the house that sits on this island is gorgeous, but who cares? It’s on a private island!

Of note: Only 5mph motors, row boats, canoes, and kayaks are allowed on Putnam Lake, so if you need to pop out to the store for a few things, it might be quite the journey. But if you’re the sea-faring type who likes upper body workouts, rowing to shore might be your definition of a good time.

The taxes are positively astronomical, but we’re guessing if you can plunk down more than a million on a private island, tax rates aren’t an issue for you.

Island includes detached garage for your boat and a guest house. Mr. Roarke and Tattoo sold separately.
