    Gone are the days where “luxury” simply refers to something as “expensive.” Thanks to two new townhouse developments in Poughkeepsie and Wappingers, buyers will have the option of living in the lap of affordable luxury.  And as more buyers are seeking out rural settings away from high rents and the hustle and bustle, Dutchess County has become a haven for country-lovers who enjoy having amenities and recreational activities close by.

Inwood offers 52 luxuriously-designed units ranging from two- to three-bedroom townhome styles, lofts and master suites and single level two-bedroom “flats.” Down the road you’ll find cornerstone institutions like the Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park and Walkway Over the Hudson State Park.
