A revisit of 660 County Route 7

Posted on Thu, 2 Jun 2016 by KiM

A couple of years ago I featured the 1850’s cottage of Brooklyn design studio Workstead (I am obsessed with their lighting). It seems they have put this adorable dwelling on the market and the listing broker sent us a link. This would be my dream summer getaway.
Elegantly simple, this 1850s eyebrow colonial in Gallatin, with private river frontage on the Roeliff Jansen Kill, is truly unique. Wake up to a river view from the master bedroom and then fish, kayak, swim or canoe on the Class A trout stream right on your property. Wonderful details abound throughout this 19th Century farmhand’s cottage, such as original wide plank floors, custom light fixtures, and a sunny deck right off the dining room. Mature trees, perennial plantings and a large lawn surround the house, providing both privacy and a feeling of openness. The cottage is an ideal retreat from city life, yet is close to many charming Hudson Valley towns. Conveniently located 2 hours from NYC, 5 minutes from the Taconic, and less than 25 minutes to Hudson, Millerton & Rhinebeck.

I like that it was not all ripped out and gutted. This place has a lot of character and I would live there all year long.

Brilliant. Just love the tranquility of this home and that they didn't spend money on making everything "new".
