As Historic Homes Week rolls along, we offer this converted chapel. Originally built in the late 19th century and made into a private residence in the 1960s, 12 Meadow Lane is nestled away in the mountain community of Cragsmoor in Ulster County. And this is just the type of house we would expect to find in Cragsmoor, a sort of mystical place (to us, anyway) situated along the Shawangunk Ridge, a place that could be a contender in the “You Can’t Get There From Here” Awards. That’s what makes it so special. The roads are tough to navigate in the winter, you can’t Google Streetview any part of it, and the entire place is on the National Register of Historic Places. You’ll have to see it with your own eyes, if only for the Old Stone Church in the center of the hamlet. Better yet, go have a wedding there on the cheap. The views alone are worth it. Speaking of nice things to look at, check out every part of this sweet, eclectic chapel about a half-mile down the road from the Stone Church from the still-standing alter complete with Latin text to the mosaic floors to the lofty ceilings. Note: Sale is pending, but it’s still being shown, which means…well, you just never know.
