Kinderhook, New York, is a village in Columbia County, New York, near Hudson and not far from Albany. It was settled by the Dutch in 1640, just a few years before the English took over, and still features a number of 18th century houses built by the Dutch, earning it the distinction of being one of the most historically significant spots in this part of the state. Kinderhook was also once home to Martin Van Buren, the eighth president of the United States, and his house, Lindenwald, is now a national park. Essentially, if historical homes—and local history in general—piques your interest, this is your spot.
The four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath property at 63 Novak Rd., in neighboring Valatie, now on the market for $680,000 isn't historic, since it was built in 1990. However, its rustic, cedar siding gives it a timeless appeal. There's an inviting in-ground pool, in addition to an outdoor patio.
The country kitchen is outfitted with wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances.
The living room has lots of light and a fireplace. The exposed brick wall is a nice touch.
