    Description

    RARE C. 1695 STONE. Sited along an old native american trail leading from present day Kingston all the way to the Delaware Valley water gap, the once 'Old Mine Road' or 'Trade Path' takes you back to a much simpler time, one with far less distraction and deeper appreciation for fertile land. Legend has it that this old "King's Road" and connecting Rest Plaus Road were the midway point for travelers heading between Ellenville and Kingston. Rest Plaus, a Dutch term for resting place, became a historic agricultural mecca and local hospitality hub at the time, according to local historians. From there, a few centuries later, this present day time capsule is a history hunter's dream. Modern day conveniences added to old world charm of yesteryear, all wrapped up into one of the most interesting offerings to hit the market in many years. Significant period details include original wide board floors, large hewn beams, old dutch style doors with hand-wrought iron hardware including box locks, sliding cigar bolts, and knocker latches. Rumor has it that there's a good chance the main doors were actually originally from Holland and brought over, each having specific style and wear built possibly dating back some 500 years ago. In 2000 a seamlessly blended wood frame addition designed to mimic the early period details is now the oversized kitchen/dining area with massive Rumsford fireplace. 3 full bathrooms and 5 bedrooms make this a very comfortable and versatile home to be in, with plenty of room for family and friends. 2nd floor laundry and a large master bedroom with ensuite bath are just some of the rare perks to find in such a historic stone home. Period barn and separate garage/workshop with new electric service offer the creative outlet for the author, composer, designer, or maker. Genuine and unspoiled, this home is literally one of the oldest homes in the Hudson Valley yet comes with updated plumbing/electrical/heating systems, newer roof, and centrally located between popular hot spots of Stone Ridge, High Falls, Kingston and New Paltz. Also nearby to Saunderskill Farms, one of the oldest contuniously family operated farms in the country since 1680. Today's community offerings now include local craft breweries and orchards, excellent artisan shops, farmers markets, and other local fare. There's a special something here and the current owner wants to pass the torch to someone who will appreciate where it all came from, someone who wants to further restore and preserve in 2020 and beyond.
