Traditional c.1820 Ulster County farmhouse ripe for its modern-vision restoration. Currently tenant occupied, this home is being sold by the family which grew up here in the mid 1900s. Once an active farm with cattle, the property features a pond, stream, fields, hillside pastures that are now wooded, and some of the most wonderful views of the east bank of the Hudson River. (Including the Vanderbilt and Roosevelt Estates in Hyde Park). The County records indicate an additional bedroom on the upper level. There are currently 3 rooms up there, used for storage only. The main floor features living room with propane log fireplace, kitchen and dining areas, and the bath, plus a large utility area. (as there is no “basement” below grade) The second floor features 3 of the 5 recorded bedrooms. The house is currently inhabited and has some recent updates to the bathroom. There is tremendous potential for a 21st century vision of the house. (note the colorized photo of the house in an imagined dark grey) Or, if its purchaser prefers, the tenants may consider remaining (they have been there many years) if the purchaser's reasoning is to build on the land after securing an approved subdivision. There is substantial road frontage on both sides of Floyd Ackert Road, and the land has not been subdivided since 1970. It seems ripe for construction of one, or perhaps several new homes. Recently, several others have discovered this terrific location, convenient to Kingston, New Paltz and Metro North in Poughkeepsie: There are new homes in construction within 1/2 mile, mostly on Old Post Road, just above Floyd Ackert Road. And, there's currently a million dollar+ home for sale just two doors down. The property is located just 1 mile from Scenic Hudson's Shaupeneck Ridge public hiking trail and Kayak lake.
