This Uptown Kingston beauty sits in a quaint neighborhood and is walking distance to Forsyth Park, the historic Stockade District, the Trailways bus station and minutes to the NY Thruway Exit 19. This solidly built 1930’s 2 bedroom, 1 full bath, arts and crafts cottage has been well kept and updated over the years. The deco era cut glass doorknobs, black and white checkered bathroom tiled floor, arched doorways, handmade front door with original hardware, and brick fireplace are still intact as well as pristine hard wood floors throughout most of the house. New windows were installed by the previous owner equipped white wooden shutters that provide privacy while letting in ample light - a sensible yet elegant solution to window treatment. This is a tight house that needs very few improvements. The current owner renovated the kitchen with custom cupboards, a hideaway cabinet for electric appliances, marble counter top with carved washboard drain, and a floating island with stone counter that can be moved around. The stackable washer dryer is conveniently housed behind the door in the kitchen. The layout is ideally planned; an entry hall way with bedrooms and the full bath to one side, a bright, sunny living room on the front, the mudroom, kitchen, dining and a bonus room currently used as a study and overflow guest room are all along the back side. There is a full size, dry basement easily accessed from the mud room stairs. The furnace and oil tank are less than 10 years old. The house has central AC but the system was drained by the current owner and not used. The wood burning fireplace has also not been used or inspected by the current owner. The property is on municipal water and sewer. Outside you will find a bird sanctuary in a naturally enclosed backyard. Tall trees buffer the back end of the yard, and a handsome stone wall is to the other side. A one car detached garage is on the other side. Stone steps lead to a pergola. There are two small decks off of the house inviting you to step outside, or just pick a few fresh herbs for cooking. The plantings around the house are just about to explode into spring. Enjoy strolling to the famous Kingston Farmer’s market, bookstores/pub, bike shop, vintage clothing and furniture, records, guitars, wine shop, coffee bars, bread bars, bar bars. The list goes on! Forsyth park has multiple resurfaced tennis courts, a playground, picnic area, trails and even nature center.
