1896 Saugerties Schoolhouse, $819,900

  |  April 7, 2022

This beautifully renovated schoolhouse is ready for you to move right in—and it’s just a short drive to Woodstock, downtown Saugerties, and Kingston.

The structure was built in 1896, but its brick exterior is pristine (and inside that copper-roofed cupola, the school bell still works!). Inside, the 2,232-square-foot space includes two beds, 2.5 baths, and a great room with tons of high-end style.


The coffered ceilings are 14 feet high in the great room, which takes up most of the main level. Sunlight from 4′-by-8′ windows streams onto the pickled-wood floors, which are a great contrast to the dark kitchen cabinets. Granite countertops line two walls of the kitchen and cover a spacious island with lots of storage as well as room to seat four. Stainless-steel appliances include a side-by-side refrigerator and a six-burner gas range with a stainless vent hood.

Across from the kitchen is the living area, punctuated by a floor-to-ceiling, streamlined gray stone fireplace and an exposed brick wall.

The primary bedroom is on the main level; it measures 27 feet long, and includes an exposed-brick accent. A walk-in closet has pull-down stairs to access the full attic.

The primary bath has a double-sink vanity, glass shower, and separate soaking tub.

There’s a half bath off the kitchen, as well as stairs leading to the lower level.

Down here is another living area and bedroom.

This sun-soaked bedroom also has brick accents and a full bath, as well as a door outside to a private 24′-by-11′ patio. There’s a full laundry room (with a laundry chute and laundry sink) downstairs, as well.

The one-acre property also includes a fenced-in patio area. The house is updated with three-zone heat, two zones of air conditioning, a whole-house generator, and a six-camera alarm system.  Located just a mile and a half from the Sojourner Truth Ulster Landing county park on the Hudson River, this house is a real gem.
