Got homeschooling on your mind? This Kerhonkson Colonial offers two options for use as home classrooms, including a separate studio space.
With many New York State public schools switching to online instruction for the next school, parents are being forced to rethink their living spaces. How do you create a home that’s conducive to living, learning, and, in some cases, working, too? And, if you’re a teacher, how do you create a virtual classroom from your own house, even as you try to balance your own children’s online classes?
This week on Upstater, we’re looking for houses for sale in the Hudson Valley and Catskills that lend themselves well to home-based education. An extra room, a big yard, a separate studio/office, or a location close to nature and safe socializing could make the difference between a homeschooling experience that’s fun and rewarding, and one that’s frustrating. We’re starting our week of homeschool-friendly homes in Kerhonkson, NY and this renovated three-bedroom house and separate studio.
The house itself includes 1,616 square feet with an open first-floor scheme combining living room, dining room, and kitchen…
…highlighted with Shaker-style wood trim, columns, Douglas fir wood floors, and staircase. The living room’s brick fireplace has been retrofitted with a wood stove, and internal workings like plumbing, water heater, heat, and more have been upgraded, too.
Speaking of new things, check out the new kitchen all decked out in stainless steel and white subway tile, illuminated by new lighting and a skylight…
…connected to a formal dining room that opens to the back deck via glass sliders.
It probably won’t shock you that the home’s 2.5 baths have been totally renovated, as well, including the second floor bath with glass-enclosed shower and rainfall shower head.
In addition to three bedrooms, there’s also a full walk-out basement that could be used as a family room, home office, or homeschool classroom…
…or, on a temporary basis, you could turn the studio cottage into a one room classroom perfect for home-based/remote education.
Finally, when learning is done for the day, playtime can take place on the 1.3-acre property surrounded by the beauty of the Catskill Mountains. Rumor has it, there are swimming holes nearby, but you’ll have to find those on your own.
Kerhonkson is in western Ulster County, NY, convenient to New Paltz, Stone Ridge, High Falls, and Kingston.
