Home      Welcome home! This centrally located, quaint ranch home sits on a dead-end street within the Rockingham Farms neighborhood of Wappingers Falls. The no-outlet neighborhood provides the perfect setting for making cherished memories of bike riding and street hockey. The home offers an eat-in kitchen, three bedrooms, living room, and a full bathroom off of the main living area. Thoughtfully placed for warm weather entertaining, there is an additional half bathroom off of the kitchen. You’ll find hardwood floors throughout the primary level with tile in the kitchen for easy cleaning. A brick fireplace is ready for cuddling up on the couch during cozy, winter evenings in the living room. Also enjoyed from the living room are year-round Hudson Highland mountain views. Electric baseboards for heating make this home super cost-effective, easy to maintain, and add an eco-friendly touch. On the basement level, additional mostly complete living space is currently being used as a family room which is ready for your finishing touches. A separate bonus area is being used as a laundry room and a workshop/studio but could easily be converted into an office or even more living space. Exterior access from the basement level is provided through a built-in one-car garage off of the family room. 

Land    Outside, you’ll find a pine tree-lined (for year-round privacy), fenced-in level backyard perfect for your furry friends. A large back deck provides ample space for hosting summer meals, conveniently located off of the kitchen. When entering the home, you'll be greeted by the many annuals planted around the property which include lilac, rose, and peony bushes as well as creeping phlox, daffodils, cornflowers, lavender, pine trees, and lilies. The owners have meticulously cared for the full vegetable garden which includes tomatoes, beets, onions, potatoes, watermelon, cantaloupe, bell peppers, jalapeños, habanero peppers, Italian frying peppers, brussels sprouts, cabbage, lettuce, green beans, sweetpeas, snap peas, edamame, cucumber, zucchini, summer squash, marigolds (to naturally keep pests away), rosemary, sage, oregano, thyme, cilantro, lemon balm, and citronella. The paved driveway offers ample off-street parking.

Surroundings     Locals and visitors alike enjoy a plethora of options for good food, craft breweries, wineries, and outdoor activities such as hiking, canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, birding, quadding, swimming, boating, sailing, and biking. Within an extremely short distance of the home, you’ll have access to coveted Hudson Valley staples such as Adams Fairacre Farms, Stewarts, Norma's cafe and bakery, Aroma Osteria, Double O Grill, Heritage Food and Drink, d’Vine Wine Bar, Saigon Pho, Mexicali Blue, East Fishkill Provisions SmokeHaus, Joe’s Dairy Bar, County Fare, Coupe Champagne Bar, The Hog, Palace Dumplings, and Cafe Maya. The home is also conveniently located near Bowdin Park, situated on the Hudson River, with ample horseback riding trails, hiking trails, playground, and water park. Redwing Park is even closer to home for spending summers at the lake swimming, dock diving, and indulging in icees. The surrounding towns include Beacon (Dia:Beacon modern art museum, Scenic Long Dock Park riverfront park, Melzingah Taphouse, Story Screen movie theater, Beacon Falls, Mount Beacon, etc), Hopewell Junction (Hot Bagels, East Fishkill Rec Center and summer camp, Southern Dutchess Flea Market, etc), Fishkill (Tomato Cafe, SplashDown Beach waterpark, Dutchess Biercafe, Red Line Diner, etc) and Poughkeepsie (Walkway Over the Hudson, Kings Court Brewery, Hudson and Packard, Rosticceria Rossi & Sons (super authentic) Italian deli, Locust Grove Estate, Bardavon Theater, etc). Whether day-tripping or commuting for work into New York City, the New Hamburg Metro North station is only 12 minutes away (which will bring you right into Grand Central Terminal on a beautiful scenic train ride along the Hudson River) and the Taconic State Parkway that will get you to the George Washington Bridge in only 1 hour and 15 minutes.
