Historic Bull Family Stone House Near America’s Oldest Winery, $495K

  |  May 29, 2019

This antique stone house was built in 1856 for the long-standing Bull Family in northern Orange County, NY.

The original cut-stone exterior stands the test of time, while, inside, the 4,800-square-foot interior of the J.S. Bull House features the same wood trim, details, fixtures, and plaster moldings installed during its construction. If you’re looking for something durable and packed with historic charm, this is the property for you.

Additionally, you’ll find a center-hall set-up with high ceilings, wide-plank floors, and wood paneled-walls on display in the formal twin parlor rooms aside of the main hall. They also boast marble fireplace and pocket doors.

Rounding out the main floor is an open kitchen, family room, library, and full bath. As is evidenced by the kitchen but perhaps no so evident from the other photos, this home needs extensive rehabilitation, so first-time renovators, this might not be the project for you.

Four bedrooms and two full baths are on the second floor, and the third-floor walk-up attic provides potential for a fifth bedroom, home office, guest suite, or studio.

The J.S. Bull House is situated on 3.1 acres – old dairy barn included! – just two miles from the Brotherhood Winery in Washingtonville, NY, the country’s oldest continually-operating winery established in 1839. Also close to Newburgh, NY, the Hudson River, Stewart State Forest, Stewart International Airport, and access to I-84, I-87, and the Salisbury Mills/ Cornwall Station on the NJT line.
