In both its style and size, this home has the feel of an old Dutch stone house yet built in 1940! Like most structures built during World War Two, this Huguenot-inspired stone house, with solid thick walls to screen out any traffic noise, is both fortress-strong and aesthetically pleasing, incorporating as it does the massive beams, hardware and deep-set windows of the period that inspired it. What's more, the property is zoned commercial-industrial so the sky's pretty much the limit as far as usage is concerned. Perhaps the highlight is the double-height addition with its bluestone floor and fireplace, the room blessed with an abundance of light. Or maybe it is the sprawling formal living area in which a grand piano seems a smallish piece of furniture. And although some buyers might choose to update certain elements in the home, perhaps others might be entirely happy with its original irreplaceable wallpaper, such as that seen in the grand foyer with its handsome staircase. Certainly, anyone ought to be happy with the home's many built-ins. Although technically a three-bedroom home, there is plenty of opportunity in its 3,400+square footage to configure additional bedrooms; meanwhile, above the garage, accessed by a breezeway, is a charming and outfitted guest space. The huge original kitchen could be a spectacular renovation project for the discerning eye, or else kept more or less as sweet as it is. Both upstairs bedrooms are generous spaces and one of them has a fireplace, the third in the house. Lovingly landscaped, the setting is private and its 3+ acres are plenty to build other structures, especially if its new owner chooses to use the property commercially as well as a residence. All the stone you see on both the exterior and the interior was quarried locally and the beams came from a local barn. This home has the spirit and feel of a time long gone by when New Paltz was all farmland, but it has the infrastructure of nowadays with a furnace and hot-water heater that are practically brand-new. The convenience of the location could hardly be bettered: both the NYS Thruway exit and the village of New Paltz are literally a few minutes away. Priced as it is in the current market, and especially if someone has a commercial use for it, this is an extraordinary value. At this amazingly reduced price for a house of this nature, the property is being sold as is.
