For the affordable price, one might expect less from a Rosendale NY village house. But, if you know Rosendale, you know that it’s an unpretentious hamlet situated along the Rondout Creek – south of Kingston, north of New Paltz – where housing stock is still affordable…so far. But if you know that, then you also know that housing stock is also rare, which makes this particular Rosendale house a unicorn in our book. A unicorn standing next to its very own waterfall, right in the backyard.

Originally built in 1880, this three-bedroom farmhouse in great condition includes hardwood floors, built-ins, an open floor plan, and a walk-up attic. The lower level of the house is a legal apartment, which means you have income to offset the taxes or mortgage. Our favorite feature of this home, however is its location walking distance to the Rosendale trestle, the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail, the Rondout Creek, Rosendale village businesses, and quick drives to both Kingston and New Paltz in Ulster County.

For those unfamiliar with Rosendale, the village was once a center for natural cement production. In fact, the Widow Jane Mine, formerly a cement manufacturing plant, is still around and surrounded by lots of intriguing ruins located just west of Rosendale center. Go for a visit. Bring your camera.
