Rhinecliff Cottage for $289, 900

 

Oh, how I love you Rhinecliff! You’re Rhinebeck’s cool, goth little sister—literally edgier, as you’re right on the cliffs overlooking the Hudson River. (Get it?) Pretty, glossy Rhinebeck is just a couple miles away, so your residents can take easy advantage of her charms, while enjoying your ready access to the Rhinecliff Amtrak stop and gorgeous river views. Plus, you have the best white person Chinese restaurant in New York, with its porch overlooking the river.

As Rhinecliff is a tiny hamlet of relatively tiny Rhinebeck, it doesn’t have a huge selection of real estate stock, so I was thrilled to see this pretty little country house on the market. We often get asked by our readers (and I get asked by my renters), “Do you need a car to access this one?”  While the answer is always yes—honestly, basics like grocery shopping and going out to eat are impossible in most Upstate counties without wheels—-this one is within walking distance of the train station. The house is small, on a small-ish lot, but it has a nice established garden and that American Gothic feel so common in Rhinebeck. I’m not crazy about some of the updates, but it is in move-in condition. Stats on the jump.
