2911 Route 209, KINGSTON
Historic, yet appealing to minimalist modern tastes, the James Oliver House is a welcome addition to the Kingston area renaissance known as "Brooklyn North." This massive stone colonial, conveniently located between Kingston and Stone Ridge, boasts a grand foyer, an elegant, generous stairwell, large spaces, high ceilings, and a dramatic open third-floor which reads “loft," with exposed beams and cathedral ceilings. The large, well-appointed kitchen does contemporary justice to the building's vintage, exposing a three-story stone wall and two-hundred-year-old wood paneling. Throughout the house, you will find the original wide floor boards, over-sized closets rare for the era, ample and large, well-lit bedrooms, and many original details — chestnut beams, forged hardware, deep-sill windows, Dutch doors, four working fireplaces. Every room is its own adventure. Currently configured for a single family, the home can easily be taken back to a three-family residence (its actual zoning), making it a prime investment property, or candidate for cooperative living. The top floor, with its own kitchen, bathroom and separate entrance, can provide enough income to fund a mortgage. Currently a highly successful Airbnb, it earns between $2,000 and $2,500 a weekend, and $5,000 to $10,000 for special occasions. The grounds feature lovely landscaping, perennial gardens and mature specimen trees. The property includes an enormous, vernacular early Dutch barn in excellent condition, a stone smokehouse, a chicken coop, among other studio/workshop outbuildings. Artists and makers, aspiring B&B owners, and those interested in seeking to start a small working farm will recognize this as a unique opportunity to own a part of history — New York State's first Senate meeting occurred here. For the buyer who can no longer find this kind of real-estate in Kingston or Hudson, this is the property that has been awaiting you.
