Updated Three-Bedroom Home + Four Acres 10 Minutes from Kingston City, $265K

  |  August 1, 2017

Want to live near lively Kingston city but still want your big yard, too? Here’s a c.1875 farmhouse in the hamlet of Ruby, situated north of Kingston and about halfway to Saugerties village. The interior – which is much bigger than it looks from the outside at over 2000 square feet – has been updated with wood floors, high ceilings, dining room wood stove, ceramic tiled kitchen floors, and an upstairs family room with and separate office. Also includes two full baths.

The house sits on over four acres of land giving you plenty of buffer room from your neighbors. Enjoy your sauna time in privacy. That’s right, the property comes with a sauna, as well as a detached garage and large shed with its own electricity. Guest house, anyone?

When it comes to property taxes, you could do worse than the Kingston area, especially if you stay out in the town of Ulster and away from the more populated city proper. The MLS listing puts the school + property combined tax amount at around $6100/year.

1119 Main Street, Kingston (Murphy Realty)
