    Property Details

    Description

    Less than two hours from the city and perched on a hill overlooking 9.8 acres of expansive meadows, mature trees and the Rondout Creek sits this historic c1850 4BD/4BA Greek Revival Brick House and the adjacent 2BD/1BA Carriage House. Originally built by a local shipbuilder and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the current owners, an established interior designer and successful actor, extensively renovated both structures with incredible attention to restoring and maintaining the old world charm and character of a bygone era while incorporating all of the modern conveniences city dwellers want in an upstate home. This is the ultimate turnkey property owing to the extensive renovations that touch almost every room and system in both structures. A few highlights in the Brick House (by no means an exhaustive list) include an architect designed kitchen complete with high-end appliances and finishes, two new bathrooms, central air, refinished original elm floors as well as new white oak floors, a new roof, and a new screened-in front porch. The Carriage House, which was renovated down to the studs, includes a two-car garage that could be converted to a studio or workshop. Since purchasing the property, the owners replaced and have meticulously maintained all of the systems including furnaces, septic tanks, well pumps, water heaters and water filtration systems. A complete list of restorations/renovations is available upon request. The layout of the Brick House and the expansive grounds make it ideal for entertaining, both inside and out. The main floor is solely devoted to socializing with a spacious, sun-drenched living room, a kitchen designed with the home chef in mind, a delightful dining room, a cozy and comfortable screened-in porch and a lovely elevated back porch. The upstairs includes the ensuite master bedroom complete with a custom built-in closet, two large guest bedrooms (one with a fireplace) and a full bathroom. The ground floor includes a guest bedroom with a wood stove, a full bathroom as well as a large bonus room (currently used as a laundry room).  If you're looking for an investment property, this is a great option, as both structures have generated significant rental income. The structures are close enough to be rented by larger groups but far enough apart to permit separate rentals. Historical income figures are available upon request. There are various spots on the property perfect for siting a traditional pool and there are also natural springs on the property that could easily support a natural swimming pool. Over the course of the past few years, the owners planted 40+ trees to create an added buffer from the outside world and to give the feeling of being ensconced in your own private oasis. The property is steps away from the Rondout Creek as well as a popular swimming hole for locals and just minutes away from hiking, biking, climbing and swimming in Minnewaska State Park and the Mohonk Preserve as well as the farms, restaurants and shops of High Falls, Stone Ridge and Accord and the larger towns of Kingston and New Paltz.
