Here’s a gasp-worthy restoration that just went on the market in Gardiner, Ulster County. We have it on good authority that the current owners, an artist and a veterinarian, spent the better part of two decades bringing this c.1854 Center Hall Colonial back to its original glory…and then some.
And, considering the owners had 6400 square to tackle, we are in awe of the end results. Details include stacked crown moldings, pressed tin ceilings, pocket doors, stained glass, plank flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a cadre of fireplaces. Modern amenities haven’t been spared in the effort maintain historical accuracy. Central A/C, Sub-zero fridge and modern appliances in the kitchen, spa-like bath fixtures, and an efficient heating system are all included. Want to see what the house looked like pre-restoration?

On top of it all sits a walk-up attic flooded with light, which the artist-owner has set up as a home studio. The 54-acre lot also comes with a pond, carriage house, shed, and guest cottage with a casual, stylish interior.
Gardiner is situated on the western side of the Wallkill River in southern Ulster County, 10 minutes south of New Paltz village. The Poughkeepsie train station is a half-hour away. Less than 2 hours from NYC.
