We’re concluding our week of Colonials with this stately, columned example in Kerhonkson.
The fieldstone-pillared, wrap-around porch is just one clue to its 1847 origins. Inside, the home has been tastefully renovated.
A scrubbed hickory floor and white walls are a clean, neutral backdrop in the living room. Black trim around the large windows is a striking contrast.
The center-hall staircase is black, too. Check out that barn door to the laundry/bath, and let’s see more of that amazing wallpaper pattern!
Wow—more black trim sets off the large-scale print on the walls. That giant window frames a view of what looks like an old barn, although the listing doesn’t mention one.
The laundry/bath has stacked machines and a glass-enclosed shower.
The galley kitchen has a dark stone floor, stainless-steel appliances, and light gray cabinetry that complements granite counters. At one end, you get another view of that barn…
…while the other end offers entry to a breakfast nook.
The nook has doors that open onto the back deck.
Imagine your morning cup of coffee out here, listening to the birds. Or long nights in deep conversations with friends.
Back inside, head upstairs for all three bedrooms. This one takes advantage of the dormer and roofline; lots of windows let the light pour in.
This room, too, shares the same decorative elements. It doesn’t look like there’s overhead lighting, but there’s plenty of room for creativity with table lamps and floor lighting.
The painted plank ceilings are another testament to the house’s vintage, and add character.
There’s a nicely designed bathroom on this level, too, with penny tile, a soaking tub, and a separate shower.
Off the back deck is a pathway to a firepit area and a hot tub.
There’s a small studio separate from the house that’s tailor-made for a writer’s retreat. It has its own bath.
A one-car, detached garage and a large driveway offer plenty of parking. There are 1.3 acres here, and the property is spittin’ distance from Rough Cut Brewing, 15 minutes to Stone Ridge, and 20 minutes to New Paltz and the New York State Thruway.
