Want to live in one of Hudson Valley’s thriving, historic cities? This Kingston Victorian home is beckoning…
If you’ve been avoiding midtown Kingston because it gets a bad rap, well, stop it, right this instant. Midtown has got a lot going for it these days, including good food, good drink, Kingston’s own large music/live performance venue UPAC, and art galleries, plus its proximity to both Uptown Kingston and the Strand neighborhood on the Rondout Creek makes it all the more attractive. And, finally, midtown Kingston is packed with gorgeous older homes, in a variety of price points (“affordable” being our favorite category), just like this renovated three-bedroom on West Chester Street.
Dating back to 1895, the house includes three bedrooms, walk-up attic, refinished hardwood floors, and a small home office with private entrance and bathroom. On top of that, the 1,900-square-feet interior boasts original details all over the place, like wood trim, ornate wood staircase, oxeye living room window (yep, that’s what those round windows are called on old houses), and exposed brick. Newer features include living room fireplace, central A/C (hallelujah!), cedar-lined closet, and stainless steel kitchen.
Bask in the sun and watch life go by on the street below from the second floor bay windows…
…or, take a seat on the front porch. Also includes detached garage, back deck, and fenced backyard.
Either way you look at it, this Victorian is pretty as a picture, and in a great location, to boot, especially if you like to go places without the use of car. So, hop on your bike or put on your sneakers and head out the door. Kingston awaits your illustrious arrival.
