This Lofty Ulster County Stone House is Curing Our Monday Blues, $895K

We’ve fallen in love with every aspect of this Ulster County stone house, and now we invite you to do the same…

Usually we wait until later in the week to start parading the Best of the Best of the listings in front of you. However, we just couldn’t hold back on this 6,075 square foot stone building southwest of Kingston. It’s our favorite listing this week!

It won’t be hard to see why once you look at the listing photos. This c.1760 stone house is all about space. Oodles and oodles of space, both in terms of height and foundation footprint. And, for the most part, the interior is uncluttered with ways to fill all that space, which warms the cockles of our Minimalist hearts. Just look at this kitchen…

Original timber beams, fireplaces, moldings, and floorboards marry this home’s historic roots with modern sensibilities.

This 6-bedroom, 4-bath house is a single family residence, but it’s zoned as a three-family. Furthermore, the listings states that it does a brisk income as an AirB&B, both in individual accommodations and as a group inn for special events. There’s certainly enough room here to make it both a private residence and rental. The top floor is a self-contained residence with its own kitchen and separate entrance.

Situated on 5.92 acres of land with an old Dutch barn, stone smokehouse, and other outbuildings in the town of Marbletown. Your next door neighbor is the historic hamlet of Stone Ridge, an appropriately-named place given that this is Stone Houses and Features Week.

By the way, to put things into perspective, this house’s listing price comes out to $147/square foot. That’s practically a bargain around these parts.
