I think this center hall Kingston Colonial is a pretty house, but what really caught my eye was the location. The Rondout neighborhood in Downtown Kingston is desirable for all the right reasons—-right on Rondout Creek with its water sports and beach access and chock-a-block with pretty historic homes—but housing stock is tight. This is one of the few Rondout homes we found during our Kingston week. It has some good period detail and a lovely, though small, backyard. It’s also well suited for home office life as well rocking in country retirement: note the drum kit in that great attic!
The ceilings look a little low and the bathroom could use an update, but the house is pretty turn-key as is. It’s been on the market for five months, with a small dip in price. Here’s hoping the owners are open to negotiation.
