About 1883 Main Street

Introducing The Rifton, a fully restored & masterfully renovated 1876 stone residence perched above the Walkill river between Kingston & New Paltz, in the hamlet of Rifton, NY. Over the years The Rifton has served as a church, a town hall, and the btiment canards for a local duck farm, and the current incarnation beautifully preserves this spirit of gathering throughout all the living, entertaining & work spaces spanning over 6,000 sq ft. Preserving original elements from each of the iterations, The Rifton has been artfully restored with wabi-sabi modernism resonating throughout the space in the perfectly imperfect details like exposed beams & bedrock ledges, original stone walls & antique doors layered in timeless patina. Down a gravel path, the entrance to the home is shielded by a gentle canopy of lush foliage that plays whimsically against the stone facade. The front door opens into a vestibule & mudroom created from bedrock & imported terrazzo tile. Light from the 7ft tall original windows streams into the living room and eat-in kitchen, bathing the space in natural light and accenting the exposed beams and custom staircase constructed from reclaimed wood. Off of the open-concept living space are three bedrooms & two full baths. The primary bedroom suite offers a walk-in closet & full bathroom with glass shower, exceptionally designed to highlight the natural bedrock walls & ledges. Two tranquil guest bedrooms and an incredible 5-piece custom concrete bathroom finish off this level. The second level of The Rifton is comprised of a massive entertaining space with soaring 30ft ceilings and custom stone and steel firepit that looks plucked from a Viking mead hall. Views of nature abound through the thirty-two original windows set in natural stone walls & 16ft glass sliding doors that lead to a deck perched three stories above the Wallkill river. Lofted above the great room is a fourth bedroom with full bath, and adjacent is the vaulted atelier space dubbed The Tower'' as it spans five stories. Ideal for live/work applications, The Tower is a mix of stone & steel with open common areas, all connected by a spiral staircase.The grounds are a maze of stone walkways and wild gardens that feel centuries old.The paths connect whimsical perennial gardens with lounging & dining areas,and through patches of pink phlox you'll catch glimpses of the Rifton's stone facade & bright blue accents, transporting you to a provincial paradise 1.5h from NYC.
