Renovated Red Hook Farmhouse, $324,900

I’m always wary of an address with “Old Post Road” in it. And, indeed, this place is on a little stretch of street off right off the busy new post road, Route 9. Still, this place interests me, more as a permanent residence than a country home. As they say, I love what they’ve done with the place: the steel gray living room, the open floor plan, the “no whining” sign above the kitchen sink. It has a second floor studio/apartment for some added income or an internal getaway. It’s only .35 of an acre of land, but it’s right close to the community pool and park. Stats on the jump.

  1. Can’t imagine why you are wary of “Old Post Road” — to me that means it’s been around since pony express days, and they usually have really old, sometimes pre-Revolutionary houses on them. This particular Old Post Road certainly does have a stretch of Colonials, some spiffed up, some messed up. It’s in an area now called Upper Red Hook; apparently this was the original town of Red Hook, but they moved the center a couple of miles south at some point, where it remains — can’t remember why, but they must have had a reason! Pity the taxes are so high on this house.

  2. pity that taxes in general are high in red hook….so don’t just single one house out.
