Once upon a time in the late 1880’s three grand and beautiful homes were built and became a part of New Paltz’s history. They were built up on a high hill with commanding views of the Shawangunk Mountains and the famous fire tower with stunning Sunsets. Walking distance to the heart of the brisling Village of New Paltz where the many shops and eateries reside, this home is also a stone’s throw to some of the worlds best climbing, hiking, and trails in the world. At 3400 sf this breathtaking Victorian was built in 1890 with three bedrooms and 1-1/2 baths in the main house with one currently being used as an office, art and music room and has a ½ bath (ensuite) then there’s 2 bedrooms with 1-1/2 baths in the Airbnb. The apartment is completely private with its own paved parking and entry but can be used as part of the main if you choose it. This house at Serendipity Orchard Heights has great privacy with mature and established gardens of more than 30 years and 4 giant black sugar maples that runs syrups in the fall if you are so inclined. Many locals have no idea this house is even here in the summer once the many maples trees fill out and on a ½ acre of beautiful property and a recent addition of a picnic area on the back of the property that was reclaimed 2 years ago. The large kitchen is a beautiful Modern/Victorian with custom cabinets the sellers designed including a laundry center. The kitchen has a gourmet flair with its reclaimed stainless countertops from a restaurant and all stainless appliances including the Knock Knock door on the brand-new Refrigerator with 2 ice makers for entertaining. The house itself needs nothing but new occupants. On the back of the property is a new and charming “She Shed” with a full length purple deck next to the new garden beds and picnic area that’s perfect for BBQ’s and on the other side is the frog pond. If you’ve ever desired to have your own Airbnb then this property is perfect for you. Three years ago part of the house became a beautiful and successful Airbnb that pays for the mortgage and the taxes so it’s practically free to live here. There are 4 beautiful porches on this house, four bays and in the back is the fairly recent addition of a deck with beautiful plantings and attached planters! For more information go the Serendipity’s Airbnb main page. The apartment is approximately 1200 sf and a real treasure in the main section of the Village. (read the reviews) The Bakery can be seen from the Romeo and Juliet porch on the 2nd floor. We will never want to leave for a “vacation” and if you are an avid Bird lover as we are we have a gorgeous assortment year round. This is a must see in the vibrant Village of New Paltz!
