Get a cute New Paltz village cottage, and the three-quarter-acre lot to go with it…

Did you know that, nestled near the heart of New Paltz village, there’s a c.1700s cluster of stone buildings and homes belonging a group of Huguenots escaping religious persecution in then-France/now-Belgium? And, did you know that every year in the fall, the 10-acre Huguenot Street Historic District transforms into a spooky, Halloween-y look at the neighborhood’s ghostly past, including a cemetery tour? And, did you know that you can hop onto the Wallkill Rail Trail and walk or bike from New Paltz village through this historic district?

These are just a handful of things you can do whenever you want if you lived in New Paltz. Now you can move right into this delightful two-bedroom cottage located on a tucked-away .7-acre lot, less than a mile from restaurants, businesses, and the Water Street Market, an outdoor shopping emporium that features live music during the summer.

This 1,280-square-foot, 1920s cottage would make the perfect pied-à-terre someone looking to spend time exploring the Hudson Valley and Catskills while staying close to town where you can ride your bike to the wine shop or take a short drive to the grocery store. Plus, there’s an I-87 Thruway exit in New Paltz and a Trailways bus stop, and the Poughkeepsie train station is less than 20 minutes away.

The interior includes two bedrooms, one full bath, hardwood floors, lots of nooks and crannies for storage, and a screened-in back porch.

It could use a spot of cosmetic updating, but the cottage is an excellent condition and well-maintained by previous owners.

Its location off a small dirt road on the north side of New Paltz offers some privacy, as well as plenty of space to plant gardens and build a patio, if you’re so inclined. This is a true country setting in a funky, hip village in the heart of the Hudson Valley.
