The magnificent stained glass on the staircase landing is only one of this Kingston Second Empire Victorian’s fabulous features.
If you want an eyeful of antique Victorian homes, we suggest taking a spin down Fair Street in Uptown Kingston, NY. There, you’ll find them all lined up in a stately row, with this c.1850 Second Empire complete with a slate-shingled mansard roof, arched dormer windows, and a Greek Revival front porch sitting pretty among them.
The list of details inside the 4,464-square-foot residence is lengthy, but six working fireplaces, hardwood and parquet flooring, and embossed ceilings set the stage…
…and Greek-inspired moldings, ceiling medallions, built-ins, floor-to-ceiling windows enhance the tableau.
There are four floors of living space, with one floor featuring a thoroughly-modernized kitchen, airy dining room with exposed beams, and double glass doors that open onto a sleek stone patio. Various sitting and family rooms make up the first and second floors, and the home’s huge bedrooms and spa-like baths are upstairs. The finished attic is currently used as a playroom, while the basement is its own self-contained apartment
Oh, you need more space, you say? How about a free-standing sauna and studio facing the backyard’s stone patio, outdoor shower, and swimming pond.
Long story short, this is a straight-up oasis, situated on .39 acres of one of the Hudson Valley’s favorite cultural centers, mere blocks from live music, top-notch food, galleries, public parks, the Rondout Creek…the list goes on.
