Upstater is in Kingston today, at a classic brick two-story in the heart of the city.
The brick facade is slashed with a charcoal-toned sunroom that wraps from the front around to the side of the house. Kingston bluestone abounds here, in the sidewalk that climbs the hill in front of the house and in the walkway and front steps.
The sunroom is clean and bright, with white walls and a gray/blue floor.
The front door is old-fashioned with inlaid glass and a weathered brass doorknob. Notice the stained glass accent in the adjacent window?
Inside, the house has some of its c.1913 details, like the sturdy sidewinder staircase in the front hall.
The living room has pocket doors and a ceiling fan. The floors are a rich hardwood, and beautifully finished.
The pocket doors separate the living room from the dining room, which has a black-painted brick accent wall, and built-in cabinets and drawers.
It’s newly carpeted with beige wall-to-wall.
The kitchen has modern touches like white, Shaker-style cabinets; granite counters; and stainless-steel appliances.
It’s got an unusual shape, however, with the sink around the corner from the range.
The bedrooms are all similar, with the original hardwood floors, glass doorknobs on the doors, and either ceiling fans or overhead lights.
The hallway is freshly painted and has the same pretty floors.
Neutral paint in the rooms means easy decorating for the new owner.
The rooms have closets, too, which are a nice touch, given the c.1913 age of the home.
This bathroom has been modernized, with a floating, dual-sink vanity.
There’s a second, skinny sunroom off the bathroom, too.
One of the bedrooms has access to it, too.
A tub/shower is snuggled into an alcove in one corner of the full bathroom.
Original trim around the windows is painted white, like the baseboards, offering a nice contrast to the deep tones of the hardwood floors.
Continue up another flight of stairs to the finished attic.
Black wall-to-wall carpeting covers the floor up here. A partially finished bathroom is awaiting completion by the new owner.
The kitchen door leads outside. Here, you have some lawn space and a red gazebo/bar along the backyard fence line.
Surprise! There’s also an inground pool.
The house sits on almost a quarter acre in midtown Kingston, just down the block from the antiques mecca Zaborski Emporium.
