Happy Halloween, Hudson Valley! Monday’s don’t feel nearly as bad when it also happens to be Halloween- and we’re still excited from all the great Halloween Events and Fun Things to Do that we’ve been at all weekend (and we’re looking forward to hitting up even more events tonight!) So, in honor of it being Halloween, we thought we’d share some treats- a rundown of some of the newest listings in Ulster County to have hit the market this October!
26 Josephs Drive in Saugerties, NY is located in the highly sought after and well-manicured Bishop’s Gate community of Saugerties. The 1,660 square foot, two-story Colonial is only 20 years old, but with plenty of recent updates, and has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an attached 2 car garage, rocking chair front porch, back deck and tree-lined backyard offering additional privacy. The interior of the home features a full finished basement for even more space, hardwood flooring, gas fireplace, central AC, and a modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances. On just under ½ an acre, this lot too has plenty of space for you and the family to enjoy time outdoors, with lots of space to entertain. This home has been meticulously maintained and updated, and with all that it has to offer, it’s at a steal of a price, hitting under the $300,000 mark. A gorgeous, move-in-ready home, just in time to settle into before the snow flies!
Saugerties is continually proving that it is a hot contender in the current real estate market. Not only is the picturesque maritime village a hit amongst visitors, Saugerties’ appeal has only heightened further over the past years due to the extremely popular HITS on the Hudson Horse Shows, the opening of the Diamond Mills Hotel and the many awesome events and festivals, including the annual Garlic Festival. Saugerties prides itself on being a riverfront community with a rich water-based history, and 26 Joseph’s Drive is a great place to experience it. While not directly on the water itself, this property is located a mere half mile from Scenic Hudson’s Falling Waters Preserve; a beautiful park along the riverfront where you can get up close and personal with the river and enjoy the soft sounds of trickling waters from the tiered waterfalls you’ll find there (If you want to read up on and see more photos of Falling Waters Preserve, check out its feature in our 2016 Fall Hikes Guide!)
This 2,672 square foot rustic styled, contemporary ranch sits on just over 2 acres of private, wooded splendor in the heart of historic Stone Ridge. With 4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a full finished basement, there’s plenty of room at 24 Albright Lane in Stone Ridge, NY to spread out and enjoy the sunny, open floor plan of this home. Two separate stone fireplaces, in the living room and finished downstairs give a cozy country feel to this ranch, complimented by the large wooden beamed ceiling and rustic wooden details around the home. Double sliding glass doors and ample windows let the light shine through and a large side deck connects the indoors and outdoors together. There is also a shed hidden in the treeline of the mature woods, and beautiful stonework landscaping and stone walls that create a magical feel surrounding the home.
At 24 Albright Lane, it’s all about the central location, which puts you in walking distance to pretty much everything that this historic little hamlet has to offer, including restaurants, banks, shopping and a pharmacy. The beauty of this property is that despite being in the heart of it all, the home is located on a private road, just off of Main Street and the mature woods backing the home means total privacy. Stone Ridge is also a great place to take in the many festivals, arts & crafts fairs and flea markets that surrounding communities of Rosendale and High Falls put on, and is also located near a string of local farms and markets. Whether a full time home, or a weekend retreat from Manhattan, 24 Albright Lane is sure to please with it’s ease of access.
877 Lapla Road is a 1958 Cape style cottage, sitting on just under 2 acres of land in this highly desirable Marbletown location (don’t let the Kingston mailing address fool you here, 877 Lapla Road is all about stunning country living!) Rolling hills and mountain views await residents of this area of Marbletown, and despite having the best of Ulster County country living at your fingertips, New York City is still less than two hours away. This cottage is also only 10 minutes from historic Stone Ridge and only 15 minutes from Kingston and Woodstock. Despite being convenient to reach all of these great locations, at 877 Lapla Road, you'll feel as if you're miles away from it all, surrounded by the pristine natural landscapes of rolling hills, mountains, and just a short drive to the beautiful Ashokan Reservoir.
This two bedroom, one bathroom, functional cottage contains 1,258 square feet and plenty of new updates making it move in ready! All appliances in the home have been replaced within the past 5 years and in 2015 the exterior of the home was given a facelift with new paint. In 2016, the new upgrades were numerous, including new roof and gutters, installing extra drainage around, and sealing the foundation, a new 200 amp electrical system, as well as a new water softener and hot water heater. The eat-in kitchen features a beautiful wooden breakfast bar and plenty of built-in pantry space for a kitchen of its size. And mechanics, artists and hobbyists take note- a detached workshop space/ garage with existing electric and with a built in mechanics pit in the floor is the functional space you’ve been looking for.
