    Property Details

    Uptown Kingston at its finest: This handsome brick side-hall began life in 1850 but has been graciously expanded over the decades into one of the most iconic houses on the stunning 'doctor's row' section of Fair Street. Beyond the sweeping front stoop and brick driveway, the property known as 'Sunshine and Shadows' is entered through a gated porte cochere, adorned with windows rescued from Kingston's famed former post office, that opens to a completely private and fenced-in backyard oasis of mature trees and landscaping, patios and a large 2-story barn building. The house itself is equal to the lush setting, with remarkable features to be found on all four levels. On the high-ceilinged ground floor, a terrazzo-floored entry hall steps down to a double-length parlor with twin Italianate fireplaces and a stunning plaster bracket beam. That space is flanked by a bay-windowed study featuring paneling and cabinetry salvaged from both the 'Mary Powell,' a legendary Hudson River steam ship, and a Vanderbilt family mansion in Manhattan. The formal dining room, also bay-windowed, includes custom wainscoting, intricate multi-layered crown mouldings and another fireplace, one of six total in the house. Those rooms flow to a 20th-century addition featuring a large modern kitchen, half bath, back staircase and a handsome family room finished with reclaimed ceiling beams and pine paneling, all opening to the backyard. Upstairs are 5-6 bedrooms and two full bathrooms, all easily reconfigured into luxurious primary and secondary suites, if preferred. The attic level features something truly unique for star gazers of any age: its own observatory, clad in a salvaged brass marine facade. The finished basement level, entered through a discreet street-facing entrance of its own, is a former doctor's office featuring 1,600 additional square feet of sunny finished space, including an easily expanded half bath, multiple rooms, kitchen and a gracious common area with fireplace and Colonial Revival built-ins. It's the perfect accessory-dwelling unit or work space, and has also been permitted for use as a professional office. This is a rare blend of exceptional historic character, privacy and financial opportunity, all within a quick walk to the stores, galleries and other attractions that have made Uptown Kingston the hottest neighborhood in the Hudson Valley.
