Car-Free Country House: Cold Spring Cape, $350,000

36 mountain avenue cold spring ny

If you’re familiar with the real estate market at all in the Putnam County village of Cold Spring, you know that $350,000 for a 1,000 square foot pad walking distance to town and the train station is pretty darn reasonable. Now, if we were to pluck this house out of Cold Spring and drop in, say, Port Ewen, it would probably be a lot less expensive. But Cold Spring is Cold Spring, an idyllic, lovely, waterfront town that’s an hour away from NYC. And there’s a lot to like about this little beauty, like a cozy interior with lots of light and a sweet (albeit small) back yard with a deck. As for the location, it’s great: Close to schools, the train, etc. Keep in mind, though, that the walk to the train station is down hill. The walk back is, well, you know.

Car-Free Country House: Cold Spring Victorian, $860,000

2066 route 9d cold spring ny

Alas, we were unable to find a Car-Free Castle for you this week. Instead, we picked a really expensive but completely gorgeous Victorian located less than a mile from the train station in Cold Spring! Although, $860,000 is almost mid-range for Cold Spring, where the housing stock is priced high and the taxes are absurd. But, if you can afford to live there, it’s a nice place. This house has stunning views of the Hudson River, a couple of fire places, and some incredible restoration work, all on five acres.

Contemporary in Cold Spring, $849,000

192 e mountain road s cold spring ny

Interesting things happening with this property in Cold Spring. Clearly it was designed with a heavy Arts and Crafts influence in mind, plus a kind of converted barn look. The exterior definitely works for us, particularly the details. The interior mostly works, but maybe it’s the autumn tones that make us unsure. Regardless, we love the bonus room over the garage and the big back deck. Like this design but looking for something a little more affordable? This unfinished property is similar. And it’s bigger. You might want to put your coffee down before you read the tax amount.

Cold Spring Contemporary Fixer-Upper, $180,000

311 east mountain road south cold spring ny

Oh so much potential here. We’re picturing a swinging mid-mod inspired interior tucked away in the country, with flower and vegetables gardens on its 1 acre lot. Someone with The Touch could make this place really interesting and cool. It’s located about 5 miles outside of Cold Spring, but it’s relatively close to Route 9, which is a straight shot right into town. Loving the matching sliding glass doors with the eyebrow windows over them in the living room. We’d start by weed-whacking the heck out of the growth right up against the house. So cathartic.
