This French-Huguenot Stone House is the Stuff of Dreams, $875,000

  |  August 26, 2015

Is there anything more quintessentially Hudson Valley than an antique stone house? In fact, the history of New Paltz runs through the very veins of this c.1745 home, constructed in a style that originated straight from the French Huguenot settlers who came to the New Paltz area in order to flee Louis XIV’s tyrannical persecution of their religion back in France. Full restoration of this house took place back in 1980 with the original details lovingly preserved. And if those features – ceiling beams, polished wood floors, farmhouse doors, built-ins, and three fireplaces – aren’t tempting enough, perhaps the fact that there’s a secret tunnel located underneath the property will pique your curiosity. Includes additional period outbuildings, landscaped yard, and spring-fed pond, all on 4 acres of land in Gardiner, a stone’s throw from Minnewaska Park, Mohonk Preserve, and New Paltz village. Poughkeepsie Metro North/Amtrak is 20 mins. away. All in all, a history lover’s dream in heart the Hudson Valley.
