Lovingly cared for by the current owner, who has done multiple upgrades and improvements. Thanks to meticulous, tasteful landscaping and 16 evergreen trees, this property affords privacy and peace despite nearby neighbors. Almost completely fenced, it's a paradise for dogs to play along the river or enjoy a game of fetch in the front yard. The property includes approximately 320 feet of private river frontage. The house on one level and wheelchair ramp that slides out from under the deck, over the front steps, are designed for aging in place. The tranquil, tree-dappled deck overlooking the winding Wallkill River and the riverbank is the perfect spot to unwind, sip wine, drink coffee, or grill. The backyard is completely private – all you see is the river and surrounding greenery -- and the picture window in the living room affords a striking tableau of the river and the field across from the house. After building a hill on the riverbank, the current owner, who has lived there for 10 years and through many hurricanes, has experienced zero flooding issues. The house is attached to bedrock with four helical piles, so it is as sturdy and solid as a riverfront house could be. This fix was done in 2015 at a cost of $80,000 and included rebuilding the basement and foundation. The home's interior features an airy, open floor plan with a vaulted ceiling in the kitchen and is painted in soothing Navajo white and sage green tones with honey-hued bamboo floors. Even the large, appealing bathroom has a river view. Opportunities for outdoor recreation abound here – just push a kayak or canoe into the river or cycle on the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail, only half a mile down the road and home to the charming Rail Trail Cafe. Minnewaska State Park is just a 20-minute drive away, yet you can be on the thruway in 10 minutes (via flat, easily navigated roads) and in New York City in 90.
