Renovated but preserved in all the best ways: The Palmer Canfield house, built by a prominent 19th Century construction merchant and Kingston mayor, retains a remarkable amount of original detail, including elaborate front-porch fretwork and roof brackets, while also embracing modern life with a stylishly updated layout that makes the most of its large and sunny backyard. The brick 3-story, a mix of Federal and later Victorian architectural elements, features a classic townhouse feel now opened up to create a graciously integrated living room, dining room, full bathroom (with stream shower) and renovated gourmet kitchen on the main floor, opening to an end-to-end deck and bluestone patio in back. Upstairs are spacious bedrooms and a stunning, spa-worthy bathroom with soaking tub. Reconfigured by the current owners from 3 bedrooms to 2 bedrooms (plus large dressing room and laundry), the second-story layout can be easily converted back to 3 bedrooms. On the third floor are 2 additional large and light-filled rooms, ripe for use as office or studio space. The finished walk-out basement opens to the bluestone patio and includes a 27-foot long family room with 2 original fireplace openings, half bath, and a wide hallway perfect for additional work space. Modern systems include radiant-floor heating on the ground and basement levels and in all bathrooms. Outside, the property includes a wonderful concrete-brick 2-car garage building with 13-foot ceilings, a new standing-seam metal roof and window openings, plus ample off-street parking on a long paver-blocked driveway. Historic but also modern in feel, this is a unique and move-in ready opportunity, 2 hours by car from Midtown Manhattan and minutes by foot to all the restaurants, galleries, festivals and boat and kayak launches that have made the Kingston Rondout one of the Hudson Valley’s hottest neighborhoods.
