Once part of an estate during the 1920s, this Cornwall carriage house is now a stand-alone time piece in need of some historic restoration. 

The listing for this six-bedroom carriage house boasts its lineage to the “Packenstacker Estate,” a name we researched but could only find references to in direct relation to the listing description of this house. So, local Hudson Valley historians, if you know something about the eponymous Packenstackers, please let us know!

Our lack of local familial knowledge doesn’t stop us from appreciating the character of this home, from the sliding barn doors, to the Franklin woodstove, to the original wainscoting that covers nearly every inch of the 2,729-square-foot interior…

…while the shag carpeting, decidedly not a feature original to this home, could be pulled up to reveal those hardwood floors…

…such as the ones on display in the dining room.

The kitchen is large but in need of a more modern upgrade…

…the second-floor bedrooms are big and light-filled, some of them sporting some more hardwood floors…

…and others in need of still more de-carpeting.

The staircase down leads to the lower level, where you’ll find the master suite and full bath and a sauna…

…and, while it looks huge, more renovations are needed, like drop ceiling removal and, yep, still more carpeting.

The property is two acres in size, situated on a dead-end drive at on curvy mountain road perched above the Hudson River hamlet of Cornwall-on-Hudson in Orange County, NY. For those who love old historic ruins, you might find yourself intrigued by the foundation of the main house still on the property.
