A unique live-work opportunity in one of the Hudson Valley’s hottest areas: This renovated 19th Century church in Kingston’s waterfront Rondout district features 6,500 square feet of stunning space on 2 levels -- the main sanctuary space with its original Gothic timber trusses and stained-glass altar windows, plus a light-filled and spacious ground floor that's being renovated to include an open kitchen and luxury bathroom. Once home to the Parish of the Holy Name of Jesus, a staple of community life when the Rondout was home to workers on the D&H Canal and Kingston’s bluestone industry, the building still stands out as an architectural treasure among the hip restaurants, galleries, kayak launch points and other attractions that are transforming the Rondout today. The building is tucked away on a quiet street, with Rondout Creek views and ample parking, making it an ideal live-work space for visual artists, musicians, designers or other creative professionals. And unique among many church buildings, this one features remarkable light and architecture but in a wholly manageable scale, without a towering steeple or other hard-to-repair features. Zoning is R-1 (single-family residential) but with a variance that allows for certain types of light manufacturing. The long list of recent improvements includes a brand new seamless metal roof with snow guards and copper gutters, repointed brick, plus landscaping and a redesigned perimeter drainage system. Additional work is currently underway on the ground level, including the new kitchen and bath and a new boiler, and will be completed ahead of sale, unless a new buyer wants to adjust the plans to suit their own needs. The work is being done by one of the area's most reputable general contractors and premier electrical and plumbing subcontractors.
