  • $399,000

  • 7.79 Ac.
C. 1910 beautiful grand victorian home on 8 acres with studio outbuilding and in ground pool. Countless historical details inside and out. The foyer, and second floor landing are huge - they are literally rooms unto themselves. A one of a kind feature is the 4 sided brick fireplace - with 4 separate hearths serving the foyer, den, living room, and dining room. Two of the bedrooms have private balconies, and with unique nooks thanks to the turret design of the house. There are plenty of updates too. Most windows are relatively new, the roof was installed fairly recently, the exterior was recently painted, and the kitchen has been rehabbed nicely. The property is beautiful with large trees and gardens.

    Looks like a barber design…very similar to design no. 53 from the cottage soulvenir planbook. Perhaps a modified version of that design?

    Matt, I was thinking the same thing…the tower roof has a very Barber-esque look to it and the interior has a Barber flavor to it as well. What say you, Chris?

      By the way, I just want to thank Kelly for pulling out all the stops and going above and beyond this week-we old house enthusiasts are so fortunate to have someone so hard-working and dilligent. There is no way I could even come up with half as many examples and I’m about as hard-core old house (mainly Victorian) “nut’ as you’ll ever find. My sincerest thanks and appreciation for all you do, Kelly!

        Thanks John!

        It does have some similarities but the interior floorplan of #53 is pretty different than this one looks to be. But who knows, maybe Chris will pop in and clarify.

        Ditto! There are no comparisons to you, Kelly! Your interest and time are so very appreciated! 🙂

        I agree. This is one of my very few go to sites. I thoroughly enjoy it and have learned so much. It’s not just me. I have shared this link with a few friends who love this site too. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve called over a colleague at work and said “come and look at this house.”

        All my friends and coworkers still agree though. Our favorite house we’ve seen is what we call “the yellow one in Maine”. Right down to the George Washington portrait and the Queen Anne lace.

          Thank you for sharing the link to “that yellow one in Maine”! That might be the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. The totality of it…including the setting…is to die for. Wow. You and your colleagues have terrific taste!

        Me too, what John said! This week I’ve been glued to the OHD site, such a great variety of old homes to peruse.

        So much fun, Kelly!

    Posted in 2011, it sold since but recently came back on the market. I kept three old listing photos because it had a better view of the entrance and the tower.

    The house doesn’t seem to have changed much since the 2011 listing. I can’t find any history though I’d guess 1890’s. Here’s a street view of the place, tucked in the woods off the highway in the rural Town of Wawarsing, about 3 hours from NYC: https://binged.it/2paYlJ9

    In Ulster County records, the property sold in 2012 for $180k. The owner of record died in 2015. The market value assessment for 2016 is $208k, including the 3 small lots across the road included in the 7.8 acres.

      Back then it was listed as 1900 but I supposed that was the usual for old house dates. I didn’t keep any of the old exterior listing photos, they were pretty poor then anyway.

    It does have the looks of a Barber house. If it is plan #53, It’s been expanded a bit but a lot of the features on the exterior seem to fit.

    I hope Ross sees those floors!

    What a beautifully charming home! Love the turret! And I really like that wooden cathedral arch in the hallway.

    All I can say is OMG and WoW! What a beautiful old home! I’ve never
    seen a home with a fireplace like that, lol!

    yes Kelly– thank you so much for all your efforts! I truly enjoy looking at all the homes.I’m enjoying all the comments from others out there too. I’m more of a Greek Revival fan than Victorian- but this one is gorgeous and not too ornate for my taste. Nice area too.

    With a little work (especially repainting and kitchen) this could be a great bed and breakfast assuming the town would allow. 7 beds and 5 baths is a good start on that. And I would think the Hudson Valley would be a good place for such an establishment.

    I love the massive arch leading to a tiny tower room on the second floor landing. Also, I really like the diy industrial style kitchen-it’s simple and functional. The eclectic mix of furniture works well here. And since it’s Kelly appreciation day–thank you Kelly! I really appreciate the work you put in here, and all the work you likely do moderating comments. It’s wonderful to have a neutral place where everyone can share their love of old houses. Good job!

      Appreciate that, hopefully it will always be! 🙂

      While that second-floor wooden arch element is certainly dramatic, to my eye it’s an “interpolation” from another building.

      It looks earlier than the rest of the house’s interior fittings, and its level of elaboration seems at odds with the rest of the fairly restrained interior woodwork. I’d be very interested to read John Shiflet’s opinion on this…

  12. Colleen Johnson says: 1156 comments

    Kelly I can imagine you’re feeling the love. I know I appreciate all you do, hubby is watching Bering Sea Gold right now, so I get to enjoy going through all the historic homes and read and learn from all of you. This house is no exception. Grand old gal!

  13. JJ says: 96 comments

    There look to be two kitchens maybe? I would have a frustrating time cooking in either one, but the rest of this beautiful house makes up for it. Just gorgeous!

    And I hope it’s not too late to jump on the Kelly Love Train. Thank you, Kelly, for letting me know there is hope that my dream home is out there and it’s not too late to find it. I’ve had some frustrating times recently and your site gives me a chance to relax and dream and leave all the nonsense behind for awhile. Your site has been a blessing to me. Thank you! ?

    Love the floors and the rest of the beautiful wood trim. With two kitchens it may have been subdivided. One picture of sinks is just a tip of the bathroom iceberg in a home with five of them. I adore the homework nook! Kelly, I have dreamed on this site for quite some time before commenting. All three of my grown daughters love to spend time here as well. Thanks!
