It feels like it’s out in the country surrounded by farms and nothing else, but this Colonial is just five minutes from New Paltz village and its happening music scene. Live music abounds at joints like Snugs, Oasis, and Bacchus, but it’s also a great town for record and guitar shopping thanks to Jack’s Rhythms, a New Paltz institution, Root Note Music, and Imperial Guitar and Soundworks. There’s definitely a thriving music culture in New Paltz, and if that’s something you look for in a town, you’ll find it here.
We get the impression that this home has its fair share of character. The listing says it comes with a working beehive oven, which was enough to lure us in. What is a beehive oven?
Looks a little bit like that. In fact, this is a house of many fireplaces/wood stoves, which means that the 1600 square foot interior must stay pretty darn toasty in the winter. Outside, there’s over 2 acres of land to play with, plant gardens (there are already blueberry, raspberry, and strawberry bushes on the property), and allow the kids and pets to stretch their little legs. And the icing on the cake? It comes with a heated in-ground saltwater pool. Boom. You’re home.
