Set in a commercial-industrial zone a few minutes from the NYS Thruway and the village of New Paltz, this fascinating house, in both size and style, has the feel of an old Dutch stone house, yet built in 1940! Given three acres to work with and plenty of road frontage, the property should be able to accommodate other structures and within its level footprint could also accommodate plenty of parking. 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. 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. 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. It would seem a bed-and-breakfast could be an easy conversion. The huge original kitchen could be a spectacular renovation project for the discerning eye. Both upstairs bedrooms are generous spaces and one of them has a fireplace, the third in the house. 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. 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.
