What’s better than one wrap-around porch? Why, two wrap-around porches, of course, like this double-decker Marlboro Victorian.
Just in case the ground floor wrap-around isn’t enough for you, head up to the second floor of this c.1890s Grand Victorian and step out onto the second-floor balcony overlooking the property’s front and side gardens.
Situated on a corner lot nearly an acre in size, this place is more than just a pretty face. Inside the 2,800-square-foot interior are a host of period details like chestnut moldings, bay windows, Austrian chandeliers, leaded and stained glass windows, and a working fireplace in the formal dining room. Pockets doors separate each large, light-filled room from the other on the first floor, giving you the option to leave them open for a breezy flow, or close them for more separation.
The newer kitchen includes oak cabinetry…
…and, up the sweeping curved staircase to the second floor are three bedrooms plus a full bath.
Keep going to the third floor, and you’ll find a finished attic space with original stained glass windows, as well as skylights that can be opened. All this light makes for one fine visual art studio…
…while down in the basement, the finished area with a wood stove looks like the perfect place for a home bar, tasting room, or game room…
…and, during the summer, there’s more fun to be had out by the recently-renovated in-ground pool.
The southern-Ulster locale is perfect for exploring the Hudson Valley, with New Paltz, Minnewaska State Park, Mohonk Preserve, and the rest of the Shawangunk Ridge about a half-hour away by car. And, if you need to commute, head to the Mid-Hudson Bridge – about 15 minutes’ drive away – and continue to the Poughkeepsie train station.
