Welcome to 19 Garfield, located in one of the most historic and desirable neighborhoods in Poughkeepsie — and just over 1 mile to the MetroNorth station. This stunning Victorian was built in 1887 for a local banker, and is a showcase of craftsmanship and Queen Anne design. 


A whimsically asymmetrical exterior houses 6 big bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and lots of living space skillfully updated to accommodate modern functions without sacrificing historic charm. The detached two-car garage is set back behind the house which you access from a private driveway. The house sits on a double lot providing a park-like side yard appointed with beautiful plantings and mature trees. The entire property is encased in a new wrought iron fence.


There are four stories of spacious living. You’re taken back in time from the minute into the majestic foyer with the incredible wooden floors and impressive staircase. The living room filled with large windows and tons of natural light also has a working wood fireplace, pocket doors to the formal dining room, as well as an original butlers pantry with floor-to-ceiling cabinets and marble sink. This leads you into a kitchen that has been artfully upgraded to blend in with all of the history, while providing state of the art appliances.


The second floor is home to 4 generously sized bedrooms and a full bath. The fully-finished attic can be used as flex space and an office, or can be converted into a very private primary suite as there is another updated full bathroom with an inviting soaking tub.


The basement hosts 2 more bedrooms, a full bath, and a giant play/hang space along with a kitchenette. This space is perfect for guests, teens, or an au pair.


The architectural details, an abundance of storage, natural light and space along with an oasis like yard and proximity to all the great places the town of Poughkeepsie has to offer, this is an amazing property if you are looking for a city vibe
