The thing about New Paltz is that a lotta people want to live in New Paltz. Whether it’s the hiking, the cool village vibe, or the proximity to a great SUNY school, sometimes would-be homeowners look at a house in New Paltz and find out it’s actually in neighboring Gardiner or Wallkill (both of them are excellent towns, too, by the way).
Today’s pick is a crapshoot on whether it truly is within town of New Paltz boundaries. But, mailing address notwithstanding, its location is gorgeous. Panoramic Shawangunk Ridge views are the backdrop of this hilltop hideaway.
The cedar-sided house measures 3,600 square feet, and a lot is tucked into that square footage. Judging by the photos, some of the house carries a gray theme while the rest holds onto a rustic wood vibe. The living room has both: A tan ceramic-tile floor and a gray stone fireplace that matches the wall color and climbs to the vaulted ceiling.
This den/family room has wood paneling and a wall of windows.
A dining room has a hardwood floor and is adjacent to the kitchen. White cabinets and brown granite countertops complement newer white appliances. A peninsula has room to seat two.
This sunroom takes full advantage of those mountain views, and has access to an outdoor deck.
The house has six bedrooms (including a two-bedroom accessory apartment, but it can easily be converted back to a single-family). The primary bedroom carries the gray mood, with pickled floors and gray walls.
The ensuite bath also has a gray theme (except for a somewhat dated vanity).
The rest of the bedrooms are a mix of gray…
…or colorful. This room has sliders out to a rooftop deck.
My gosh, that view!!
With a giant double window and ceramic-tile floor, this bedroom could serve as an artist studio, too.
Aaaand we’re back to gray, this time with a carpeted floor.
This house has something for everyone. Even the toddler set.
The other two bathrooms are more traditional. This one has Tuscan-toned tile and a wood vanity that doesn’t quite match the bright white tub.
This bathroom continues the rustic vibe of half the house.
The house sits on more than nine acres. Although it seems to be in the middle of the wilderness, it’s just 15 minutes to the center of New Paltz village. And it’s not far from the Thruway for commuters.
