Recent property sales in Millerton

The Millerton News will periodically publish a listing of residential real estate sales in eastern Dutchess County and adjacent towns.

The Village of Millerton encompasses only half a square mile with around 900 residents within its borders. It’s not surprising that property sales are infrequent. In the five months ending in November, only five residential sales were recorded. Four of the five houses had been purchased within the last five years, three since COVID-19 in 2020, and then resold. Village living has become more popular and prices on village homes continue to rise. Currently there are only three homes for sale, two of which are listed for over $600,000.

July 2023 Sales

29 North Maple Ave., single-family with 3 bedrooms, 1 bath on a .19-acre lot, sold for $309,900.

September 2023 Sales

9 David Road, a home with an accessory apartment with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, sold for $360,000.

56 Simmons St., a single-family home with 4 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, sold for $475,000.

October 2023 Sales

This smallmouth bass ignored the tempting green Gurgler and instead took a reverse-hackle wet fly typically used in Tenkara angling. Fish are funny that way.

Cool coffee granitas

Second helpings of coffee granitas are usually required.

As I write, it is about a thousand degrees. And said to be staying there as we slog through this existential climate change, which I believe used to be known as summer. I was going to write about new and exciting developments in the pizza world, but probably no one south of the Nordkapp is going to turn on an oven much before October if this keeps up. So pizza will have to wait for who knows when, and, instead, I’ll offer something that’s really cold, really easy, and really good. You’ll love it, I promise.

Hang on a minute, I have to go open the refrigerator door and lie down on the floor in front of it for a while first. Be right back . . .
