Ripe for Re-invention... Antique Dutch Stone Colonial awaits the vision of its next caregiver. With acreage, frontage on major flowing water (Stony Creek) multiple old fireplaces (not currently serviceable) wide board floors, large beams and a scale not often found, this house surely fits the bill for those awaiting a home to create in their personal style. Sited diagonally, on a corner parcel, it features rather heavy landscaping in the front yard and thus offers privacy within the yards during the seasons one is apt to be outdoors, and a setting that certainly enhances its ‘Charm’ factor. With a Cedar shake roof, historically correct shed dormers front and rear (with standing seam metal front edges) handsomely re-pointed exterior stonework, bluestone walkway and a fenced in yard...its pretty as a picture. The creek will certainly knock your socks off. It could be spectacular with landscape design in the rear yard enhancing Mother Nature’s bounty. All we think the house needs added outside is a roomy rear deck, off the main floor living room, and some expansive exterior doors to bring the outside world indoors. And, of course, we would improve the open, though covered porch on the ground level, making it a screened room for summer’s balmy weather. Imagine the view of the rushing creek, and its sounds filling the indoors with those doors open to the main level. Totally enchanting possibilities and little to no distraction from the country roads outside. The upstairs is currently configured as 4 bedrooms plus walk-through spaces, with two staircases (one to the kitchen) and a pull-down stair to the large attic. This layout could easily be re-thought for a more 21st century flow pattern and additional bathroom(s). Additional land and a very large barn are available across Ashokan Road for added price. Please discuss these options with the seller’s agent for clarity.
