If you owned this Dutchess County home, you’d never need to stay in a cute country inn; the historic Hyde Park/Pleasant Valley four-bedroom house resembles a quaint B&B from its outbuildings and pond to its cozy interiors (h/t CIRCA). Currently on the market for $525,000, 45 Marshall Road is about the most textbook example of an uncomplicated country home that we’ve seen in a while. And it might be just the thing for next year’s Christmas card photo.

This historic four-bedroom home on over five acres of land has been lovingly renovated though plenty of authentic original details remain, including nine-foot ceilings, wide board floors and two fireplaces that stand ready to keep winter nights toasty.

Old, new and country casual work well together: The rustic country kitchen has everything even the most modern cook needs, including a fantastic farmhouse sink and lovely beamed ceiling, and the dining room has enough space for family and friends to gather ’round.

Upstairs, bedrooms are country-inn-cozy and there are plenty of extra nooks for curling up with a book. There’s a third unfinished floor for even more living space beyond the updated 2,825 square feet.

The house overlooks a pond and perennial gardens, and there’s a detached three-car garage that’s currently being used as a wood shop. A small horse barn needs work but has access to riding trails. Though it’s all country here, you’re close to the village and within an easy commute to the city.
