If you’re looking for that ideal Hudson Valley town with a walkable vibe, check out New Paltz and this charmer of a 1910s Victorian house.
In terms of location, the Ulster County village of New Paltz is pretty hard to beat. It’s just a stone’s throw from hundreds of acres of state park land along the Shawangunk Ridge, like Mohonk Preserve, Minnewaska State Preserve/Sam’s Point, and Vernooy Kill State Forest. And, commuters like that the village is on a Trailways bus route, not to mention less than twenty-minutes’ drive from the Poughkeepsie Metro-North. The I-87 Thruway is easy to get to, as well, and so are a multitude of Hudson Valley wineries, eateries, and activities. So, in other words, expect home prices to reflect same. That’s why this three-bedroom Victorian lists for almost a half-mill.
Still, we get the feeling that the listing photos don’t do the 1,690-square-foot interior justice. The c.1910s home is in good condition, well-maintained by its current owners and offers some vintage charm to go with it. Case in point: Refinished hardwood floors, pocket doors, a renovated entryway…
…and an adorable retro kitchen equipped with stainless steel.
There’s a ground-level room with pressed-tin ceilings and built-ins that could be a library, family room, office, or guest room…
…and, up the original staircase to the second floor are two more bedrooms, a renovated full bath, and stairs that lead up to the third-floor attic.
Go through the kitchen to the fenced-in backyard with its own brick patio on the property…
…along with a brick two-car garage.
From here, you can easily stroll to the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail, historic Huguenot Street, and village shops and restaurants.
