734 Old Post Road Road, New Paltz
The former Grace Line Estate, a classic center-hall colonial, was built in 1895, with two identical wings added in the 1930s to create a rambling and elegant home the likes of which are rarely found west of the Hudson. Perched high on a hill with seasonal mountain views, this stately home is surrounded by over 14 acres of magical forest and dramatic rock outcrops. While beautiful wood floors, interior and exterior details and the workmanship of an earlier time are evident throughout the house, new infrastructure has been sensitively put in place without compromising integrity. The gracious floor plan includes many public and private spaces of varying proportions, ideal for large groups or more intimate gatherings. The well-appointed kitchen opens to the rear patio for outdoor dining in warmer months, and to the spacious formal dining room, where large numbers of guests are easily accommodated. Three wood-burning fireplaces add loads of atmosphere – one in the capacious family room, one in the library, and one in the living room, a space adorned with the most beautiful moldings. There’s also a 3-room suite on the first floor with a stunning bathroom with a steam shower, which would make for a private in-law or guest space. Up on the second floor there are bedrooms and bathrooms for a crowd, all light and bright, including an ensuite master, a Jack-and-Jill set up, and space for a nanny too, at the top of the back staircase. The finished walk up attic, with its own full bathroom, makes for an ideal playroom, office, workout space or studio. An enormous dry basement adds plenty of storage space to a house that already has lots of closets. The beautiful grounds lend themselves to quiet walks in the woods, game playing, gardening and, by night, stargazing. There’s plenty of room to add a pool or tennis court as well. The central location makes access to the city easy, whether by train from Poughkeepsie, bus from New Paltz, or a ride down the Thruway. Nearby towns and attractions are plentiful, including Kingston, High Falls/Stone Ridge, The Culinary Institute, Fisher Center at Bard College, Smorgasburg, farmers markets and local points of interest galore.
This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
