The 6-acre homestead known as Shadow Lawn includes a rambling, ca. 1730 stone home that’s been a focal point in the storied history of High Falls, NY, and has been sensitively restored and meticulously maintained by the current owners. Just across the road there’s a classic red two-story 19th-century post and beam barn, measuring 30’ x 60’, also meticulously restored by master craftsmen. The home is ideal for entertaining, with its proper entry foyer, grand dining room, gracious living room and oversized eat-in country kitchen with exposed stone walls and plenty of windows. Architectural details abound and the original wide-board floors are sensational. The former servant’s quarters is accessed by its own staircase from the cozy den and could easily become an additional bedroom or office. Light and bright, the heated sunroom opens to a delightful covered porch. Three upstairs bedrooms are all comfortable and a beautifully updated bathroom includes a marble shower with heated floors. The lower-level guest suite has its own entrance, kitchen and full bath, and has provided a reliable income stream for the owners via Airbnb. There’s a two-story guest cottage on the property as well, with one bedroom, full bath and kitchen, which has been rented on a full-time basis and will be delivered vacant. Out on the property there’s an orchard; a newly built cabana with terrazzo floors, hot tub and outside shower; and plenty of room to add a pool. Shadow Lawn has been a successful event and short-term lodging venue since 2004 and the barn, with a capacity for 100, has hosted scores of weddings and parties. That said, the barn lends itself to myriad uses and can return to its original use as a horse barn, as it abuts the O+W rail trail, which permits horseback riding; there’s a year-round stream that meanders through the barn parcel. There are views of the falls from the rear of the house property, and it’s a short walk over the bridge over the Rondout Creek to the hamlet with its shops and restaurants. Minnewaska State Park, the Mohonk Preserve and vibrant Kingston are a short drive away. Property is also available on 3.9 acres without barn at $950,000 – see MLS# 20190324.

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.
