About 158 New Salem Road
Take a close look at this lovingly renovated, updated 2-story/victorian style home. A total of ten rooms to gather in or retreat to. The main level offers a kitchen, laundry room, 2 full baths, dining, living, and family rooms. The den, or parlor, called back in the day, is currently used as a bedroom. Off the living room, there's an elevated covered porch the full width of the house. Perfect for enjoying your morning cup of coffee, birdwatching, or napping in the cool of the night. Across the road is the Rondout Creek, but only seasonal small vistas allow for water views. The greenery around the Creek has taken hold and grown at several spots along the waterway. Birds do love to visit there though. Four bedrooms and a half bath complete the second story. Wide board gleaming wood floors in the bedrooms, no carpeting. Ceramic, vinyl, and laminate flooring in high traffic areas. Located on New Salem Rd. just over the picturesque red Eddyville bridge. A lot of attention to detail is evident in keeping with the style and flavor of the year built. A few area senior residents say there was a store in what is now the basement, the cellar of the house. Double doors that served as the front of the store are still there. Owners said they could see the words "Lamb's Grocery", on the stone lintel over a single doorway. One local said he was born in the house in 1911, older than public records' construction date. He said his grandfather moved there to work on the Creek's Lock System. Part of the house was a post office as well. The store owners bought ice from the Eddyville ice pond, and channels in the floor were used to drain the icebox. The basement is large, and a section has a high ceiling, check it out. The owners have lots of information to share with the future owners on all the things they have done to the house. The rear yard is charming with lots of flowering plants, sitting areas, and small paths. The barn/garage has ample space for storage and a car or truck, perhaps a small car as well there's a loft too. The historic Rondout waterfront is just minutes away. Fine dining, marina, museum, art galleries, park, cruise ship excursions (Hudson River Cruises). It's a great location, just on the edge of the City of Kingston, the entrance to the town of Esopus on the Hudson, and routes to Rosendale and New Paltz. Come take a look.
