A New Paltz Craftsman for $550K

There’s something solid and substantial about a stone feature on a house. This week, Upstater showcases homes with stone elements—a detail that provides a sure foundation in otherwise uncertain times.

Today’s house is on Main Street in New Paltz, and it’s not broken up into several units for college kids. The 1,344-square-foot house was built in 1920 and retains some vintage details, like the stone front porch.

Those stone pillars evoke serious Craftsman vibes. Although an enclosed porch is certainly comfortable, the new owner might want to consider ditching the windows in favor of an open-air porch to celebrate those columns.

The floor and wood ledges running around the perimeter are painted rusty maroon—complementing the brick facade.

Inside, the living room has great details such as an original wood floor, beautiful original wood trim, and a built-in hutch.

The original staircase is beautifully preserved, too.

This dining area is part of the eat-in kitchen. It has gorgeous wood details in the vintage doors and the knotty pine paneling.

Here, you can see how it leads into the kitchen, which has a serving island.

The kitchen is petite, but has tall cabinets and extra storage in the island.

The dining room is between the living room and kitchen. Check out the French door, the built-in china cabinet, and the Dutch door into the kitchen!

Upstairs are three bedrooms. There are 1.5 baths in the house, too, but none of the bathrooms are pictured in the listing. This bedroom has old-fashioned details like the original wood floors and vintage wood doors.

This den is cool with its wall of windows. The new owner would need to figure out the cause of the ceiling stains, and would probably want to refinish the wood floor.

The detached, two-car garage on the property is made of poured concrete and stone.

The lot measures just under a quarter-acre. It’s across the street from Main Course Catering + Marketplace, and is a two-block walk to the Adirondack Trailways bus station.

Of course, it’s just a two-minute drive—leave the car at home and do the five-minute walk instead!—to SUNY New Paltz’s campus. If this century-plus house unites with your dreams, find out more about 172 Main Street, New Paltz, from Robert M Gabrielli with Reading Realty.
