About 31 Upper Whitfield Road

Built in 1764 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Krom Stone House sits majestically perched atop a hill with views of the expansive lawn, a barn, a pond, mature trees, meadows and, in the late fall and winter months, the Shawangunk mountains. The 3BD/3BA main house, currently a profitable short term rental ($70K in 2020 and $85K in 2021) retains much of its old world charm including high ceilings, original Dutch doors, exposed hand-hewn beams, deep set 'wavy' windows, large bedrooms and wide plank floors. The first floor features the living room with a wood burning stove, a large eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a second wood burning stove and a breezeway with an attached stone patio that provides indoor-outdoor dining and entertainment options. The second floor includes a large en-suite primary bedroom as well as two additional bedrooms and a bathroom. Built in 1874, the 1BD/1BA addition connected via a hallway to the main house, currently serves as the owner's full-time residence. The first floor includes a kitchen and dining area, a living room with a wood stove and an inviting outdoor porch that looks out at the barn. The second floor includes an en-suite bedroom as well an office space. The 'cabin' is perfect as a nanny or mother-in-law suite or to offer overnight guests a separate living space while having a direct connection to the main house. With minor adjustments, the two spaces could be re-integrated into a traditional 4BD/4BA single family home. Additional unfinished studio space above the 4-car garage could be readily converted to a yoga studio, home office or gym. The grounds adjacent to the house include a large lawn, a 25x30 barn with electricity and water that can be converted to a guest house or studio, a productive vegetable garden, a sugar shack located at the base of a hillside full of sugar maples for maple syrup enthusiasts, a pond, a fire pit, a large covered porch and a very private back patio. An active chicken coop provides a plentiful supply of fresh eggs. Recent interior improvements include new picture windows in the second floor of the cabin, an upgraded septic tank, new mini splits throughout, a new 80-gallon smart electric water heater. and a fresh coat of paint. Exterior work includes the installation of annual, perennial and vegetable gardens, a chicken coop, 200 feet of privacy fence, a gravel driveway, a fire pit and reconstruction of the stone walls. Recently featured in Travel & Leisure and Afar, the town of Accord continues to be a big draw for buyers. Westwind Orchard, Arrowood Brewery, the Accord Market and Inness are all a short distance from the property. Outdoor activities in both Minnewaska and the Catskills as well as the larger towns of Woodstock, Kingston and New Paltz are a 25-35 minute drive. IG: @freshairny
