Well, it’s Fancy Friday here at Upstater, and today we’re featuring a property that hasn’t been on the market for half a century.
This four-bedroom, 2.5-bath Victorian was built in 1873 and has an impressive barn to boot.
The double front door has a Palladian window topper. Once you enter, you’re in a beautiful living room with original wood floors and a bowed alcove accented in minty green.
A white marble fireplace is on the other end of the room, adjacent to a wall of minty-color built-in bookshelves.
The formal dining room has a busy floral wallpaper, built-in buffet shelving, and a “spider web” inlay in the hardwood floor.
The new owner will likely want to rethink the kitchen. Currently, it’s got a vinyl tile floor and blue-painted accents on the baseboard heating and a triplet bow window. A sink with mismatched cabinets sits against a brick wall.
Another exposed-brick wall houses the fridge and a range on a bluestone pad. We could envision a double-size Aga-like stove in its place.
The bedrooms are all upstairs, where you’ll find a rich wood floor in the hallway.
The window sashes in this narrow room are painted green, an interesting contrast to the white trim and walls. A knotty pine floor adds vintage interest.
The same floor and sash treatment are in this bedroom.
The windows are all white, and the floor gray, in this bedroom.
On the top floor, things are different: The floor is dark wood that’s been worn a bit; there are alcoves and angled ceilings; and the windows are a bit smaller. But there’s a lot of charm here.
The front porch is square and covered, with a gray floor and skylights punched through the ceiling.
It truly is a handsome rendition of a Victorian, measuring 3,669 square feet.
The barn has been renovated into a professional office space with tons of built-in shelves and tall ceilings.
Two floors of office space include five separate offices.
It also has a conference room, two half-baths, and a paneled executive suite with its own library loft.
The office space totals 2,431 square feet on two floors.
That includes a kitchenette…
…and a three-car garage.
All of this fits on just over a half-acre of property in the heart of New Paltz village, just steps away from the Empire State Trail.
