Your own little piece of heaven. Charming and affordable early 1900’s bungalow on acreage with year round views which increase dramatically after Fall. Sublimely private and peaceful position overlooking the Hudson river with views to the south to Beacon Bridge. Current owner has done most of the hard work here, and is reluctantly leaving his shangrila due to work relocation. New roof, generous brand new kitchen with a farmhouse sink, new appliances, new water conditioner, renovated living and dining room and 3 bedrooms on top floor. Oversized bathroom upstairs in need of renovation that is large enough to incorporate a laundry. There is an extra wide wrap around verandah that awaits final restoration which completes the spacious open plan living downstairs and opens up many more living, entertaining or work space options. Huge walkup attic for storage, vegetable/herb garden beds and garden sheds for more storage. The well is in great shape and with the new roof already completed, installing solar panels on it is much closer to becoming an “off the grid “reality. Truly a unique lifestyle offering for this area.

Views from Montgomery Street

RFP# 19.19140 & 146 Montgomery Street, and 137 Smith Street– Located right off of South Street, just one block up from Water Street.
