Are you a writer? Artist? If so, you’ll want to run to this home with a circa-1710 Huguenot stone studio in New Paltz.
New Paltz’s Huguenot Street stone houses are iconic—but did you know that other examples of Huguenot beauty are scattered throughout the area? Case in point is this property, which—along with a 1,152-square-foot main house—has a 1710 stone house that’s perfect for a studio.
Two bedrooms, two baths, and living areas are inside the main house, which is a cute rambler with lots of windows and dormers.
The kitchen is cozy with traditional cabinets, hardwood floors, and open storage. One bedroom is off the kitchen; it’s tiny, but serviceable.
The current owners have enjoyed this property for 70(!) years.
Next to the kitchen is a library with a bookcase wall—this space would also work well as a home office, kids’ playroom, or yoga space. A staircase leads up to a loft area that could serve as another bedroom.
From the library, a few steps descend to a sunken living room with big windows and a door leading outside. The property encompasses 3.81 acres, with woods of black walnut and mulberry, carefully tended gardens, and frontage on the Wallkill River.
You can see the second bedroom from the living room. The home has two full bathrooms, but no ensuites.
Outside is where the magic happens:
This structure was built in 1710, and epitomizes Huguenot stone construction. If those walls could talk…
…Upstairs is an unfinished attic with a soaring ceiling.
Other outbuildings are scattered around the property, like this cute lil barn.
