A Big Easy-esque Home in Marlboro: $385K

  |  March 20, 2024

Today’s Upstater pick is in Marlboro, a riverside spot in Ulster County that’s convenient to both the Mid-Hudson Bridge and the Walkway Over the Hudson.

Built in 1880, the Big Easy-esque home in Marlboro is a nice mix of vintage and modern details. The traditional appeal of a white picket fence is replicated in the double-decker, wraparound porches.

Porch rafters overhead and a gray-painted floor continue the traditional vibe.

The front door is original; the gray wall-to-wall carpeting in the hall and up the stairway is not.

The carpeting continues into the limey-green living room, which has beautiful cherry wood trim.

Wood-plank flooring contrasts with the vintage doors and cherry-red walls in the dining room.

The kitchen is newer, with a small island that carries the same blue countertop as the other cabinets scattered around the space. Ceramic-tile flooring and yellowish walls call for an update along with those counters.

A half-bath on the main floor sports blue walls and a ceramic-tile floor.

The gray stairwell carpeting spills into the upstairs hall.

The primary bedroom is large, with beautiful doors and windows. The carpeting needs an update.

A walk-in closet is a nice addition.

The second-floor bath has a black-tiled soaking tub; white ceramic tile; and a blue-topped, double-sink vanity.

Updates could be considered here, too.

The second bedroom has the same gleaming wood-plank flooring as the dining room.

The blue walls might take some getting used to, unless the new owner cares to change them. This room has the door that leads…

…to the second-floor, wraparound terrace.

A steep staircase is hidden behind a door. It climbs up…

…to a walk-up attic perfect for a home office or writer’s aerie.

Another staircase leads from the main floor to the lower level.

Here, too, is a clean slate that could be a great home-working space.

It’s got a small covered porch that leads to the driveway.

The house measures 1,570 square feet on just over a tenth of an acre. Marlboro is a cute, quiet town; and the house is just a few blocks from great food at Raccoon Saloon, which you must hit before hunkering down for fabulous music at The Falcon—which is a destination in itself. The Walkway Over the Hudson is under a 15-minute drive.
