This week: Grand in Goshen
Back in 2012, Hudson Valley Magazine named the Orange County town of Goshen as one of the best places to live in the Hudson Valley. A great town for an historic walking tour, Goshen is home to lots of drool-worthy properties ranging in price from “YOWZA!” to “the mortgage is less than my car payment.” We chose a few in between.
This house was built in 2011 and features some pretty sweet details like Brazilian cherry wood, radiant heat, a cedar exterior, impressive stone work and, our favorite extra, a guest house (which is quite nice in and of itself, but the interior needs some re-doing). Lot size is small, just .35 acres. Beds: Seven. Baths: Six. Square Feet: 649. Taxes: $16,000. Distance from Brooklyn: 1 hour, 33 mins.
When we first laid eyes on this restored 1875 colonial farmhouse, all we could see was its lurid orange exterior. But we’re glad we investigated further and discovered the inside. Just the floors and fireplaces sent us drooling. The lot size is an acre and includes barns. Beds: Three. Baths: Two. Square Feet: 2244. Taxes: $6523. Distance from Brooklyn: 1 hour, 36 minutes.
And here’s the bargain of the bunch: A sweet little village Victorian in a tree-lined neighborhood and walking distance to lots of places in town. We like the wraparound porch, bay window, marble fireplace, wood floors — and the decent price tag, of course. We would most likely invest in bringing the kitchen back to life. Beds: three. Baths: 1.5. Square Feet: 1721. Taxes: $8170. Distance from Brooklyn: 1 hour, 32 minutes.
