Listed by Elizabeth Perez, BHHS HUDSON VALLEY PROP-KING
This cape-style house is conveniently located near High Falls, the Mohonk preserve, and downtown New Paltz. This three bedroom, one bathroom has a front porch that overlooks forested land which becomes the Mohonk preserve. The back has a detached two car garage. The backyard is fenced in, but continues further out making the land open to additional uses. The closet space upstairs could double as a corridor between the bedrooms. The walk-in attic on the same floor also has a wide range of potential. The house and land successfully inspired the artist Marc Chagall who lived here with his lover, Virginia Haggard. This period of his art has been observed to be more vibrant and lively. He would paint bouquets as well as images of sunbeams and lovers. The house was featured in The New York Times in 2011 and again in 2023, continuing to be of historic interest. This house is full of possibility and ready to be an inspiration to the next person who calls it home.
