In The Future, You Can Live Beautifully, In The Past. In a rare and wonderful 1870 Victorian country home that transports you to the charm and craftsmanship of another time. With TLC, you can make your mark on this gem. Update it or restore it to its former Victorian beauty when it was known as Twin Cedars Farm. Cedar trees and an old stone walkway lead you to the inviting, classic, covered rocking chair front porch and double front doors. Walk in and be greeted by original wide board floors, staircase, carved bannister, and many more original period details throughout. This is a warm, spacious, inviting retreat or a full-time home, beautifully set on a winding country road with almost 8 acres of lawn, woods, a small stream, and fields. To one side of the entry hall is an inviting formal DR with original tin ceiling and a large bay window bordered by bookshelves. On the other side of the entry hall is the living room. The country kitchen and pantry have original wood shelves. One small room on the first floor could be used as an office, a studio or library. The four bedrooms on the second floor include the large master bedroom with its dressing room and walk-in closet and three more spacious bedrooms provide enough space for a large family or quests. A proper staircase leads up to the full-size attic with gabled roof. The fifth bedroom is on the first floor just off the dining room for one level living. This area is known for its hiking, biking, rock climbing, kayaking, its farms and orchards, as well as the famous Mohonk Mountain House. Country living, but still convenient to the town of New Paltz with shops, library, restaurants; also convenient to Kingston's waterfronts and amenities, Rosendale, Stone Ridge, High Falls, and Woodstock. A short drive to all commuter routes - Thruway Exits 18 and 19, Trailways Buses. Metro North trains at the Poughkeepsie station is about 25 minutes away, 1½ hour drive to NYC. Mature trees, fields, and a small stream cover the land, which is subdividable should you wish – plenty of room for a large vegetable garden and even an orchard, if you please! A patio off the side of the home with a pergola makes outdoor entertaining a pleasurable activity. Don't miss out on becoming a part of history!
