Winter is on it’s way here in the Hudson Valley and some new Ulster County homeowners will be settling into their new digs long before the snow begins to fly! Let’s take a look and see what the Taft Street team has been up to this October...
123 Bedell Avenue, Highland
123 Bedell Avenue in Highland closed on October 18th, 2016 for $497,500. This farmhouse, built in 1848, is a rare gem, ready to transport you back to the simpler days, but with an updated interior that leaves no doubt that this home is 21st century modern, but still keeping its charming farmhouse feel. With 3+ bedrooms, two living areas, spa-like bathrooms and even a finished attic space, there’s lots of room inside this charming farmhouse, and directly behind the home sits the three-story, 5000+ square foot barn, that housed some very unique items one wouldn’t expect to find in a barn. The farmstead continues outside on the 8.1 acres of land surrounding the home, already complete with the makings of a personal, self-sustaining farm, including an organic garden, heated chicken coops, fruit trees and bushes, large maples for tapping syrup and plenty more space to house animals. 123 Bedell Avenue is the home for a true ‘Renaissance’ man or woman, with endless possibilities on how to enjoy this beautiful space.
123 Bedell Avenue is located in the town of Plattekill, near the small hamlet of Clintondale, between the more notable village areas of Highland and New Paltz. Here the settings bounce between small communities and vastly rolling hills of apple orchards and farms. Still only a short drive to the Poughkeepsie Train Station, living in this area is super convenient for travel to New York City and other destinations.
126 Sundown Road, Kerhonkson
126 Sundown Road in Kerhonkson closed on October 20th, 2016 for $155,400. This two bedroom, two bathroom, charming one story country home ticked all the boxes that our clients were looking for in their mountain vacation home. Located on just under two acres of rolling meadows, the spacious and open backyard contains lots of room to roam, organic garden beds and a scenic pond. Inside the house, an additional gathering room contains a wood stove and multiple sliding glass doors and windows open up to the back deck, overlooking the pond. The eclectic, artsy kitchen is the central hub of the home, with intricate tilework throughout, open cabinetry and hardwood flooring that can be found throughout the home.
If you’re looking for a rural retreat to escape to the mountains in Ulster County, with plenty of privacy, pristine nature and access to hunting and fishing, then Kerhonkson is probably for you. There’s isn’t a whole heck of a lot of going on in Kerhonkson’s sleepy ‘downtown’ area, but if you’re living in Kerhonkson, chances are, that is exactly the way you’d prefer it. Only minutes away from the sprawling Minnewaska State Park, you receive all the benefits of being so close to this beautiful area, but without the tourism and traffic of New Paltz, that sits just beyond the other side of the mountain.
191 Mossybrook Road, High Falls
191 Mossybrook Road in High Falls closed on October 20th, 2016 for $215,000. This property was a hit amongst potential buyers as soon as it hit the market and an offer was accepted in just over a week of being active. The main feature of this property isn’t so much the one bathroom, one bedroom cottage, or even the iconic red barn, but the true highlight here is the 12.5 acres of beautiful land, exactly what 191 Mossybrook’s new owners had been searching for. A pristine mix of mature woods and peaceful meadows that offers multiple building sites within it, this property’s potential is unlimited. This property is made even more desirable with it’s great location, in the historic hamlet of High Falls, minutes from the Mohonk Preserve and the magical scenery and vistas that area of Ulster County has to offer. We here at Taft Street couldn’t be happier to see these deserving buyers finally find the property they had been so desperately seeking!
