A rare and unique opportunity to own a piece of history in the Hudson Valley—this recently remodeled home was built in 1790 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Built from stone and called a bank house— since it was built into a rise in the earth and leaves a part of the basement exposed—this landmark home is known formally as the C.K. Schoonmaker House. Located on 4.2 idyllic wooded acres, the stately home sits back from the road and has a classic gabled roof that’s flanked by two chimneys. The elegant front facade includes a main entrance with sidelights and transoms, opening onto a central hallway. The original wide plank flooring and exposed wood beam ceilings can be seen throughout the home, while the original notice wood paneling in the stairway dates back to the construction of the home. Enter on the first floor to an open living area that includes a full bathroom with a claw-foot tub. The second floor houses a modern kitchen, a dining room with a wood burning fireplace, and a living room with a wood burning stove. The third floor has four bedrooms and a full bathroom with a step-in tiled shower. The lot also includes a barn that can be used for horses or vehicles, an in-ground gunite swimming pool, and a stone terrace. The family-friendly Kelder Farms is close by for picking your own fruits and vegetables, and the home is perfectly located between the popular towns of Stone Ridge, High Falls, Kingston, and New Paltz. The local community is friendly and charming and offers excellent artisan shops, colorful farmers markets, delicious local breweries, and dozens of orchards and farms. Genuine and unspoiled, the C.K Schoonmaker home is one of the oldest homes in the Hudson Valley. Yet it’s been lovingly restored with updated electrical, plumbing, and heating systems. The kitchen and all appliances have been updated as well—and the home has a new roof, too. A full detailed list of all recent improvements is available upon request.
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.
