North Kingston Arts-and-Crafts Cottage for $289K (PENDING OFFER)

Just because an offer’s been made on this Kingston Craftsman bungalow doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make one, too.

You never know; you could end up the lucky owner of this four-bedroom, c.1926 looker with a bunch of classic Arts-and-Crafts details like built-in shelves, wood columns, coffered ceilings, double French doors, and beveled glass.

This is a traditional bungalow Craftsman, a housing style popular around these parts during the early 20th century featuring sloping roof, dormer windows, and a large front porch with roof overhang. We love Craftsman homes’ understated and practical nature, with a focus handcrafted woodwork and built-ins, constructed to stand the test of time.

America’s foray into the Arts-and-Crafts movement began on the heels of the British’s movement in the late 19th century, just as the Victorian home style aesthetic was beginning to wane. One of the big differences between a Victorian and a Craftsman, aside from the lack of Victorian foofery, is the kitchen. Unlike a grand Victorian owned by an affluent family, no kitchen staff is coming to prep and serve your meals in a Craftsman, so a Craftsman’s kitchen and dining room are the heart of the home.

This bungalow’s kitchen and dining room are, indeed, warm and welcoming with stainless steel appliances, two ovens, plenty of storage, and a mud room off of the kitchen entrance.

Includes 1,513 square feet, plus four bedrooms and a finished family room and an attached walk-in pantry in the basement. On the second floor, the master bedroom comes with an attached sitting room/nursery.

Do you need a yard to go with your bungalow? This one is fenced in and comes with a shed/outbuilding as well as plenty of room for garden beds. Located in Kingston’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, close to Midtown, Uptown, and Downtown businesses. Saugerties and Woodstock are both less than 20 minutes from here.
