Built in 1784 by Dr. William Wheeler, the first doctor for upper Red Hook, this Old Post Road Coach House was once a B & B and can be one again. The house is mentioned in several books. Eleanor Roosevelt spoke here and Mary McCarthy, the first major writer to teach at Bard, lived here 1944-1946. The main road location lends itself to not only easy access, but also a sense of a world gone by. The main house has 5 bedrooms, all en suite, and formal and informal living spaces. The kitchen has been completely updated and has a large brick fireplace. Its design, and other renovations are in keeping with the period of the house. There is a 3 unit apartment building as part of this B1 zoned property. 2 of the 3 apartments have 2 bedrooms and one bath, and the 3rd has a bath and a half and a sun porch. The income stream from the apartments could pay your mortgage, they could be perfect for guests, an extended family, or caretakers. There is a 2 car garage, shed, wood shed, machine shop, and beautifully landscaped grounds. This is a property with not only a varied and interesting history, but also one with an outstanding future.

Mortage Calculator

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.
