Original detail and loads of character, all meticulously maintained: This stately 1922 Dutch Colonial on one of Kingston's most sought-after streets is close to all the renewed action on the Rondout waterfront but still evokes an earlier era. Beyond the spacious vestibule, an oversized foyer with a curving staircase separates formal living and dining rooms, each with 9-foot-plus ceilings. Adjoining the living room is a remarkable 4-season sunroom with a stunning river-rock fireplace, one of 2 in the house. A renovated kitchen, large laundry room, and half-bath complete the first floor. Upstairs, reachable by either the main staircase or a separate back staircase, are 4 bedrooms, 2 of them sharing an oversized weather-proof deck with seasonal views of the Hudson River, plus 2 full baths and a gracious landing. Don't be fooled by the 1920s thermostat, the stained-glass windows, or the custom-carved radiator cases with the 'S' honoring the first owner (Dr. Stern), all original; the house is up-to-date where it counts. Recent improvements include buried electric lines, a new water lateral line to the street, and a 6.2-kw solar array (owned, not leased) that has reduced Central Hudson electric costs to only a connection fee for all but 3 months since installation in 2015. The roof was replaced 2 years ago. A portion of the charming, picket-fenced back yard garden is easy to convert to a permanent parking area for 2 cars. This is a unique opportunity to live in a wonderfully preserved and gracious setting on a historic street, minutes by foot from all the restaurants, galleries, festivals and boat and kayak launches that have made the Kingston Rondout one of the Hudson Valley's hottest neighborhoods.
