Vintage Foursquare in Walkable Village of Ellenville for $425K

  |  January 9, 2023

This week, Upstater visits the Ulster County village of Ellenville. Sitting in the shadow of the Shawangunks, Ellenville is close to tons of hiking trails and has a walkable downtown. It has yet to gain the cachet of its neighbor Kerhonkson (aka “Kerhampton”), but it’s got a lot of great old-home inventory, like today’s pick.

This traditional Foursquare was built in 1936. It’s on a great street, just steps from Ellenville Elementary School and Junior/Senior High School. Dormers pop out of the roofline, giving the home an elegant height.

Columns frame the front steps and support the covered porch.

A view of the mountains greets you as you relax here.

The entry hall is fully carpeted (and is due for an update) and wallpapered. Doorways on either side of the entry lead to a living room and parlor.

Turn right, and you’ll find yourself in this cozy living room. A bowed alcove drenches the room with sunlight; however, the new owner might want to pull up the carpet to see if there’s hardwood underneath.

The same goes for the expansive parlor.

Folding doors lead from the parlor to the dining room, which has hardwood flooring and painted-panel wainscoting. The opposite wall has double doors out to a small deck.

The kitchen is right off the dining room. It’s an interesting mix of new stainless-steel appliances, white wooden cabinets, and vibrant blue-marbled countertops.

There’s plenty of room to move around here, as one set of cabinets ends in a peninsula with a dining area. A door leads to a small enclosed porch, which also leads to the backyard.

This den/family room has a hardwood floor.

The main floor has a half-bath that’s a mix of well-maintained tile and paint. The sink and toilet are throwbacks, for sure, but they appear to be in great shape (minus the mismatched seat/lid).

The primary bedroom is large and bright with big windows.

This bedroom, too, has big windows and busy wallpaper.

The third bedroom has muted wallpaper and carved wall-to-wall carpet. The second floor also has a full bath, which isn’t shown in the listing.

There’s a full set of stairs to the attic…

…which is huge and ready for all sorts of storage—or expanded living space beyond the current 2,203 square feet.

A detached, one-car garage looks like it has a second story for even more storage. The house is on a quarter-acre—perfectly manageable in the village.

This house is walking distance to great restaurants like Tony & Nick’s Italian Kitchen and Aroma Thyme Bistro, and wonderful shows at Shadowland Stages. The grassroots community group COFFE has sponsored the popular Market on Market as well as various pop-ups in the village that have united both newcomers and old-timers.
