About 526 State Rte 32 South
This idyllic 1880 farmhouse has been transformed into a lovely cottage that maintains its 19th century charm and history while offering all of the creature comforts of modern living. Large 6 over 6 windows fill this home with light all year long, and take in views of the flowing stream that runs along the northeast property line. Unique period details make the spaces special: solid wood doors, gorgeous antique knobs, original steel heat registers, painted wide-board floors, beadboard wainscoting and cabinetry. The main floor features a renovated eat-in kitchen with glowing pine floors, a cozy formal living room, master bedroom/bathroom suite with pocket doors for privacy, and laundry room complete with storage. A sleek black metal banister and railing add a modern touch to the renovated staircase leading to the second floor. Upstairs you'll find a wonderful room, useful for an office, playroom, or guest room, as well as a second bedroom/bathroom suite replete with a full bath and a clawfoot tub. The rooms feature flawlessly finished paint work, walls and trim. Updated electrical, plumbing, and heating systems offer peaceful enjoyment of this historic home. Adjacent to the cottage is a fully renovated home office perfect for remote work. Situated on a beautifully landscaped 1/2 acre that blooms from the beginning of spring to the end of summer, this property is a gardener’s delight. The patio, fire pit, wall of lilac, and active creek make it a perfect place to enjoy the tranquility of your own little slice of heaven or host intimate dinners and parties in total privacy. Simply a delight, this property is just 90 minutes to NYC and minutes from fine dining, shopping, local farms, world-class rock climbing in the Gunks, wineries, and a social scene that makes New Paltz one of the most sought after towns in Upstate New York.
