Own a piece of history … and a unique live-work opportunity, too! This 2-house compound on 2.2 acres fronts NY 28 West, just 1.5 miles from the Exit 19 traffic circle, and could be your next home AND your next career. “Twin Locust,” a one-time lodging house, is minutes from Uptown Kingston, the NYS Thruway, and U.S. 209 to the Rhinecliff Bridge, and sees more than 17,000 cars pass daily on average, according to state DOT traffic counts, making it one of the highest profile locations in Ulster County. Home for decades to a successful antiques store, and the proprietor who ran it plus his family, the house is zoned "Highway Commercial" but can continue on as a combination home and business place, with a wide variety of commercial purposes allowed by right, including professional offices, retail, dining and hospitality, education or daycare, and more. The buildings themselves, owned and meticulously maintained by the antique dealer and his heirs since 1957, are as remarkable as the location. The original portion of the 3,128-square-foot main house is constructed of stone and dates to 1730, with ax-cut chestnut ceiling beams, wide-board hemlock floors and original hardware, all beautifully preserved. A gracious Greek Revival addition in the 1830s expanded the house to its current size: 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms (with one located on the ground floor), and a long porch room spanning the back of the house and overlooking rolling woodlands. The separate 2-bedroom Cottage-style house, built in 1932, is thoroughly updated, spotless and boasts a proven track record as a rental property. Each building has its own separate drilled well and septic system, and both feature young roofs, newly refinished floors, fresh paint, buried utility lines, updated systems (including a Buderas boiler in the main house) and two of the cleanest basements you’ll ever see in any house, regardless of age. Whatever new chapter you have in mind, this property is strategically located and move-in ready for it.

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.
