Location: 16 Point St., New Hamburg
Description: The quaint Dutchess County hamlet of New Hamburg, tucked into the southern corner of the Town of Poughkeepsie, is one of the few Hudson River communities that sits on the river side of the Metro-North Commuter Railroad tracks. This charming 1820s house has 3,632 square feet of interior living space, with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and one partial bathroom. It sits on a 0.15-acre lot. The eat-in kitchen has a skylight and stainless-steel appliances.
The house is loaded with interesting architectural and design details, including original wide-plank hardwood floors, brick walls, wood-burning fireplaces, high ceilings with crown moldings and chandeliers, pocket doors, exposed beams, wood paneling, river-watching patio and porch, and an exposed rock wall on the lower level.
Asking price: $625,000, down from $685,000
Selling points: The house offers walk-to-train convenience for New York City commuters along with river views and sunsets and some of the trappings of close-to-farms country life. Got a boat? A popular marina is right at hand, and the New Hamburg Yacht Club, which was started by Rockefellers and Vanderbilts as an ice boat club, is just down the street.
