98 Highland Avenue, Kingston
This is a Kingston classic with an abundance of original and special details – plus a little modern personality and convenience thrown in. An absolute abundance of chestnut woodwork, a coffered wall in the foyer, French doors in perfect condition, two finial post lights, original brass doorknobs (complete with skeleton keys), half-round gutters and a formal garden in the backyard help to make it a really special home. A complete energy-efficiency makeover in the past four years -- new storm windows, storm doors, insulation, hot water heater, and a high-efficiency natural gas furnace – means that you’ll live in comfort while enjoying its vintage appeal. Additionally, there’s a mini-split air conditioning unit on the first floor to keep you cool during the summer months. A rarity in midtown Kingston, the one car garage with its long private driveway provides plenty of room for a vehicle and/or a workshop/gardening area. The good soil and ample sunlight make for a gardener’s paradise, but be forewarned: Plants grow like crazy on this property! There are three types of lilac bushes, a good variety of hydrangeas, two flowering dogwood trees and a privacy wall of lush arborvitae. The basement has a cozy room perfect for family game night or jigsaw puzzles, with a second well-appointed room for laundry, mechanicals and plenty of cabinets for storage. The attic is large and interesting, complete with its own foyer and chestnut staircase, and could become a perfect project to create more living or "creative" space. The two full bathrooms have been updated, one with a skylight and the other with an enormous amount of storage and double sinks. The kitchen has handcrafted wood cabinets and new appliances, including stove, dishwasher and a roomy double sink. This cozy and charming house is perfect for nesting in the winter, and entertaining and gardening aplenty in the warm months.
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.
