1890s brick

This 1890s brick home just steps from the Hudson River offers an eye-catching exterior and a Craftsman interior.

This week on Upstater, we’re featuring homes ripe for a re-decorating, remodel, or an update, and while the listing says this home needs “TLC,” it’s not evident from the photos, exactly, where such TLC would be applied. The 1,496-square-foot interior looks to be in tip-top shape, if in need of a kitchen update and perhaps a general enlivening of the color scheme.

Otherwise, what you’re getting is a wealth of cool wood details like the Shaker-style staircase banister, hard-wood floors, distinctive rounded window trim, and embossed tin ceilings in the upstairs master bedroom.

High ceilings in the living room will make things feel lofty…

…and there’s plenty of room for a stylish remodel of the kitchen…

…and, in addition to the master bedroom, there are two more bedrooms and a marble-tiled bath. The listing boasts a renovated mudroom downstairs, as well as a half-bathroom.

The fenced backyard is large enough but could use some tasteful landscaping…

…and, it’s worth noting that this home is located next-door to the Port Ewen Fire Department. If you’ve ever lived next-door to a firehouse, you know that you should consider earplugs in the event of occasional alarms. Port Ewen hamlet is situated just over a mile from Kingston, NY’s West Strand neighborhood on the other side of the Rondout Creek in Ulster County.
