Kingston’s historic waterfront district—the Rondout, so named for the creek that converges with the Hudson in the city—features restaurants, art galleries, and an active maritime museum.
Today’s house is close to the bustle, without being immersed in it. The c.1933 two-story was completely renovated recently, sporting a new front porch and white siding trimmed with gray.
The main level has charming inlaid hardwood flooring and an open feel.
A gray-tiled accent wall holds the TV and a gas fireplace.
Stairs to the bedroom level sit between the kitchen and a half-bath by the front door.
The bath has shiplap wainscoting, a slim vanity, and powder-blue walls.
Intricate black, gray, and white tile form the backsplash in the kitchen. A marbleized counter rambles along the white cabinets, flowing into a waterfall edge just past the four-burner gas stove.
All three bedrooms upstairs resemble each other, with light hardwood floors…
…and striking iron hardware that contrasts with the cream walls. This bedroom has walk-up stairs…
…to a spacious, peaked-ceiling attic.
The three bedrooms share this hall bath, which has subway tile in the tub/shower and a modern, marble-topped vanity.
The back porch is compact but comfortable, overlooking the backyard. The property is a city lot measuring 0.15 acre, but it’s a two-minute walk to Urban Fork for comfort food, and a six-minute drive to waterfront dining at Ole Savannah Southern Table and Bar.
