Vintage New Paltz Farmhouse Listed for Less than $100-Per-Square Foot

Pass through the threshold of this 1850s farmhouse, and you’ll be swimming in original details. 

About 3,000 square feet’s-worth of original details, in fact, are residing with this Ulster County-based home, starting with the rocking chair porch with stone supports…

…as well as the living room stone fireplace (one of two living rooms, by the way), stained-glass windows, hardwood floors and exposed beams, built-ins with leaded glass, brick fireplace in living room #2, and French doors.

The home’s kitchen and single bath could both use an update…

…and perhaps some refinishing of the floors in the home’s three bedrooms…

…and, possibly some restoration work to fix up these hand-painted floors on the second floor.

The listing enumerates a lot of updates to this house, including: drilled well, water system, and new filtration system installed in 2016; relocated electric panel and wiring in 2011; all third-floor and some of the second and first floor windows; furnace in 2008; and new septic in 2006. Most of the home’s improvement will likely be cosmetic.

Situated on a full acre of land a few miles north of New Paltz village in Ulster County. Fans of kayaking, bring your craft and put them right into the Wallkill River, which you can access across Springtown Road. Commuting? It’s less than a half-hour from the Poughkeepsie train station. Y

All this for under $300K? Definitely a bargain.
