About 72 Zandhoek Road
Set high on a gorgeous knoll this Colonial home, "Walnut Ridge" c.1875 has a curved driveway embraced by a canopy of 100 year old walnut trees taking you to magical grounds with impressive rock outcroppings, magnificent trees, a generous deck, and a screened room with roomy seating for 6. Meticulously landscaped gardens with bold pops of color and a "gathering" fire pit make for perfect outdoor spaces to entertain. Step inside and appreciate a perfect marriage of history and modern amenities. Updated thoughtfully over the years, this home was thoughtfully expanded and renewed maintaining the integrity of its original character. A sun-drenched great room with high ceilings, walls of windows and gleaming cherrywood floors flows seamlessly into a stunning eat-in kitchen with stone countertops and stainless steel appliances. The flow continues to a formal dining room or additional home office, with plank floors and French doors opening to the rear deck, making indoor/outdoor entertaining a breeze. There is a charming living room with original fir floors, exposed beams and a cozy brick fireplace focal point. Additionally, and especially timely, there's a cozy office or den, looking out to the front yard and lawn, creating the perfect haven to work remotely or to read a great book. There is also a very spacious first floor bedroom, ideal for guests or for a larger private office if that suits the next owner's lifestyle. To complete the picture is a smashing full bathroom. Upstairs are two bedrooms which share a beautifully renovated hall bathroom with freestanding claw foot jet tub, oversized porcelain pedestal sink and wainscotted walls. The primary bedroom, with walls of windows, and wood plank floors, enjoys an ensuite full bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and pedestal sink. Need a studio or a workshop? A recently updated and oversized 2 car garage offers such possibilities. This impressive home is very close distance (2 blocks!) to Main Street, Olde Hurley, with one of the oldest known collections of Dutch stone houses in the Country. There is 2 minute, easy access to extensive Rail Trails for walking and biking. And, it's a quick drive from all that Uptown Kingston, Stone Ridge, Woodstock, Rhinebeck, and AmTrak have to offer with easy travel access via I-87. Whether a fulltime home, a country retreat or a potential BnB, this unique property has so much to offer. Just make the interior your own.
