A Brick Ranch in New Paltz Village: $459K

  |  October 31, 2023

Like in other popular Hudson Valley towns, New Paltz’s housing inventory sells fast. Especially in the village of New Paltz, or near SUNY, if a house is in decent shape, it will go in the blink of an eye.

Our advice for anyone interested in today’s featured house in the village: Don’t blink. This brick ranch was built in 1957 and needs cosmetic updates, but the new owner could easily take their time on renovations.


The kitchen has cherry cabinets, granite-look countertops and a double sink that’s  stainless steel like the appliances. A breakfast set can fit nicely by that window.

The other end of the kitchen has a door to a sunroom, and a doorway to the living/dining area.


The shared space is flexible, depending on the scale of the furniture that would be used in the room.

Rich, dark wood planks surround the bluestone fireplace. A built-in hutch on the wall opposite a picture window adds vintage charm.

The house has 1.5 baths. This one has a dark wood, single-sink vanity flanked by pier cabinets.

All three bedrooms have floating bamboo flooring and Mitsubishi ductless heating/cooling units.

The sunroom has walls of windows inset into blue walls.

The nearly half-acre lot has a peek at Shawangunk Mountain views. The house is across State Route 32 from Historic Huguenot Street, where you can catch re-enactors stirring up ancestral history. Grab a bite and a brew at Garvan’s Gastropub at the New Paltz Golf Course on the other end of Huguenot Street, just a three-minute drive from the house.
