Huguenot Street is a village-dweller's dream, situated within easy walking distance of everything that makes the eclectic village of New Paltz magical! The historically preserved portion of Huguenot Street, the “oldest street in America”, begins just to the south of the house, allowing you to walk into the heart of the Village past a row of beautiful stone houses dating back to the late 1600’s. The Village is steps away, with its dozens of diverse shops, restaurants, bars, and the Denizen Theatre. The Wallkill Valley Rail Trail is accessible one block from the house, connecting into the Village of New Paltz, Gardiner to the south, and Rosendale and Kingston to the north. The house’s back yard also borders a little league baseball field you can use as a park, and the Moriello Pool and playground is a short walk away. New Paltz Village is the perfect blend of charming small town and artistic haven: there are indie bookshops, espresso bars, beer halls, used record stores, galleries, a pool hall, tacos, sushi, and bike shops. 118Huguenot Street is ideal for a family looking for a small locally supported village, with access to hiking, climbing, skiing, horseback riding and long-distance bike riding. The recently completed River-to-Ridge Trail, accessible within a 10-minute walk of the house, connects New Paltz Village to the 8,000-acre Mohonk Preserve in the Shawangunk Ridge and is truly beautiful in its own right. The SUNY New Paltz campus ,located on the southern end of the Village, adds to the intellectual flavor and vibrancy of the New Paltz scene. The house itself has been lovingly renovated by the current owners in a historically sensitive manner. Current owners have invested approximately $150,000 into the house, with major improvements that include a full kitchen renovation, new front porch with a swing, new French Drain system, new main roof, new bathroom, new sump pump, and new basement insulation. A full solar panel system was installed, which produces more electricity than the house currently uses, including the new electric car charging station. The large yard features apple trees, flowering gardens, open lawn, and a cedar fence along Huguenot Street. A truly special home! A must see only 90 Miles north of NYC!
