For those who will not be satisfied by less than a true historic stone gem with all details intact, this home will hit all the notes! This 18th century Dutch Colonial had originally been built in 1755 by Benjamin Dubois, grandson of Isaac, one of the original New Paltz Patentees. Sitting next to the lazy and deep Walkill river, there will be any number of fantastic river related activities for the new owners, their friends and family. The house has a dynamic and cool layout which makes it feel modern, but the bones are old and incredibly solid. Additionally and unusually, this stone home has tons of light streaming in from the windows and doors. The current owner has maintained this home to perfection, with all new pointing of the stone work, and a state of the art cedar shake roof with the requisite copper flashing. Two generous living rooms, deep window wells showing the 2 foot thickness of these fine walls, relatively high ceilings for such an old dwelling, plenty of doors to the exterior from many different rooms, charming kitchen with fireplace, spacious dining room with fireplace, massive main living room with fireplace, master bedroom with fireplace, and a wood stove in the family room fireplace, which had been the original kitchen. So many charming details to mention such as the gorgeous plaster work, carved ancient doors, wide board floors… the list goes on. The place has a magic that is undeniable and will be an endless source of delight to the new owners and their visitors.
