Built in 1784 by Dr. William Wheeler, the first doctor for upper Red Hook, this Old Post Road Coach House was once a B & B and can be one again. The house is mentioned in several books. Eleanor Roosevelt spoke here and Mary McCarthy, the first major writer to teach at Bard, lived here 1944-1946. The main road location lends itself to not only easy access, but also a sense of a world gone by. The main house has 5 bedrooms, all en suite, and formal and informal living spaces. The kitchen has been completely updated and has a large brick fireplace. Its design, and other renovations are in keeping with the period of the house. There is a 3 unit apartment building as part of this B1 zoned property. 2 of the 3 apartments have 2 bedrooms and one bath, and the 3rd has a bath and a half and a sun porch. The income stream from the apartments could pay your mortgage, they could be perfect for guests, an extended family, or caretakers. There is a 2 car garage, shed, wood shed, machine shop, and beautifully landscaped grounds. This is a property with not only a varied and interesting history, but also one with an outstanding future.
