Are the grown kids living at home? This pristine Kingston Victorian farmhouse comes with an accessory apartment.
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic sent college students back home to live with the parents, around 55% of 18-24-year-olds were already living at home, anyway, according to US Census Bureau findings in 2017. If you’re looking at delaying Empty Nest Syndrome for another year or two, you might be interested in the listings Upstater will be serving up this week, since all of them include an extra apartment. First on the list is this c.1901 rustic Victorian home, situated in Kingston’s Rondout district.
Original details still adorn the 1,872-square-foot interior of this well-preserved home, including hardwood floors, staircase banister, hardware, trim, moldings, and some fairly fabulous built-in bookshelves in the living room.
Bring the whole family together for dinner in the large formal dining room which opens onto the second-floor deck…
…or keep things casual in the eat-in kitchen equipped with six-burner, stainless steel stove.
The home’s three bedrooms are on the second floor, two of which have been combined into one huge room/studio complete with its own sink, counter, and cabinetry for art supplies and easy clean-up…
…and, the studio apartment is on the basement level and includes a kitchen, full bath, and its own entrance.
The backyard is nearly a quarter-acre in size, large enough to accommodate lush flower beds. From here, the Rondout Creek and marina are two blocks south, with local businesses situated just a couple of blocks east.
If you’ve got your sights set on a home with an apartment for your adult kids (or your in-laws, or your sibling who needs a place to crash for a couple of week), stick with Upstater all week long for more of our favorite listings in the Hudson Valley and Catskills!
