This is a Kingston classic with an abundance of original and special details – plus a little modern personality and convenience thrown in. An absolute abundance of chestnut woodwork, a coffered wall in the foyer, French doors in perfect condition, two finial post lights, original brass doorknobs (complete with skeleton keys), half-round gutters and a formal garden in the backyard help to make it a really special home. A complete energy-efficiency makeover in the past four years -- new storm windows, storm doors, insulation, hot water heater, and a high-efficiency natural gas furnace – means that you’ll live in comfort while enjoying its vintage appeal. Additionally, there’s a mini-split air conditioning unit on the first floor to keep you cool during the summer months. A rarity in midtown Kingston, the one car garage with its long private driveway provides plenty of room for a vehicle and/or a workshop/gardening area. The good soil and ample sunlight make for a gardener’s paradise, but be forewarned: Plants grow like crazy on this property! There are three types of lilac bushes, a good variety of hydrangeas, two flowering dogwood trees and a privacy wall of lush arborvitae. The basement has a cozy room perfect for family game night or jigsaw puzzles, with a second well-appointed room for laundry, mechanicals and plenty of cabinets for storage. The attic is large and interesting, complete with its own foyer and chestnut staircase, and could become a perfect project to create more living or "creative" space. The two full bathrooms have been updated, one with a skylight and the other with an enormous amount of storage and double sinks. The kitchen has handcrafted wood cabinets and new appliances, including stove, dishwasher and a roomy double sink. This cozy and charming house is perfect for nesting in the winter, and entertaining and gardening aplenty in the warm months.
