An incredible 1890s home with loads of charming details in an equally charming maritime hamlet right between Kingston and Rosendale. A special kind of light floods onto the wide hardwood floors from the windows in every room - maybe because of the home's corner lot position on a hill overlooking the Rondout Creek and the hills on the other side (incredible seasonal views). The massive eat-in kitchen is a dream for both cooking and entertaining, and the living room is cozy yet spacious with an efficient and beautiful classic Jotul propane "woodstove" at the center. One of the large bedrooms upstairs has balcony access and the second one is en suite with a clawfoot tub looking out at trees, so it would actually be difficult to decide which to make the master! A few bonus spaces leave room for creativity like the walk-in attic (currently used to house an exercise bike and visiting grandkids!) or the small nook downstairs next to the half bath. The large lawn includes a generous bluestone patio, a bocce court, and a red barn for a country feeling so close to all the amenities (and public transportation to/from NYC!) in Kingston, Rosendale, New Paltz, Stone Ridge, and more. The owners have updated nearly all of the mechanicals of this historic in the past few years, including the furnace, hot water heater, and water pump.
