Taghkanic Glass and Steel Masterpiece, $6.75 million

223 old route 82 taghkanic ny

We couldn’t allow ourselves to leave Taghkanic this week without looking at that incredibly cool house we depicted in the Town of the Week post on Monday. And while we understand that $6.75 million might be just a tad more expensive than us Workin’ Joes can afford, but looking is fun, and so is trying to figure out ways to steal ideas from these fancy houses and translate them into our own…less fancy houses. Like the grid pattern in the lawn next the outdoor pool (not to be confused with the indoor pool, because there’s one of those, too). We want that in our back yard. The house also includes 6 beds, 6 full baths and 3 half baths, a tennis court, stunning mountain views, a stainless steel kitchen, and almost everything else you’d ever want ever. You know what they say about people who live in glass houses: They live in awesome glass houses.

Taghankic Contemporary, $242,500

    457 county route 15 taghkanicny

We nearly passed over this one in favor of some more grandiose properties while looking around Taghkanic this week, but we’re glad our instincts told us to stop and take a closer look. The interior has so many aspects that we enjoy, like a snappy flow that’s reminiscent of a mid-mod (it was built in 1961), a cherry-red wood stove as the focal point of the white living room with shiny wood floors, and a kitchen that doesn’t look like a Lowe’s display. It’s also a bit larger than it appears, over 2,000 square feet, and it’s on two acres. It’s in the hamlet of Elizaville, which is on the other side of the Taconic State Parkway from Taghkanic, and it seems easy to get to from the Parkway itself. It’s located less than 2 hours from NYC.

Taghkanic Centerhall Colonial, $265,000

619 old st rt 82 taghkanic

This seems to be a decent deal in Taghkanic: A circa-1850 creek-side Colonial, over 2,000 square feet on an acre of land, comes with an in-ground pool and a barn for extra storage/hobbies/studio/potential guest cottage. The house appears to be in great condition, with lots of period details kept intact, like plank floors, stained glass windows, and fire places in both the living room and master bedroom. B&B potential is here, what with 4 beds/4 baths, but there’s a B&B across the street. Located in the hamlet of Craryville right up the street from a performing arts academy and a diner.

Taghkanic Mid-Century Modern, $545,000

25 stone jug road taghkanic ny

We love a mid-mod, especially the kind with an indoor pool and a lot size of 23 acres that includes a lake for swimming, boating, bass fishing, and just staring at, contemplating how lucky you are to live in a mid-mod with an indoor pool, 23 acres, and a lake. The nearly-3,000 foot house also comes complete with a billiard room, fire place in the living room, wood floors, and lots of windows to let in natural lighting (including some glass block, which is okay by us in a mid-mod). Living in your own private park paradise certainly has its advantages. You get a stream, all kinds of trees, and privacy galore. So much for ever leaving the property.
