The owners were looking for a nice weekend home that was close to all the amazing park lands here in Ulster County. They found a beauty! This old gem was built at the end of the Craftsman Era of architecture and is a fine example of it. The previous owners had owned it forever and kept it in great shape. The old kitchen had quite frankly worn out and you'll be delighted with the brand new one in the house now. This style of home has a great floor plan. On the main floor you'll find that killer kitchen, formal dining room, 1/2 bath, open living room with fireplace and a huge porch on each side of the home. Back porch has been enclosed and screened. You can sit out there and hear the Coxing Kill stream as it splashes down below the home. It’s real pretty down there, but a challenge to reach. Great fishing for brook trout! Upstairs you'll find a large full bath with a full-sized tub/shower and three spacious bedrooms. One of them has a nice big crib. You'll find the house to be quite comfy and a great home base for all that the area has to offer. We have thousands of protected acres to roam between the Mohonk Preserve and the nearby Minnewaska State Park. There's a rail trail nearby that goes for about 20 miles for some scenic bike-riding, jogging or strolling. The Walkway Over the Hudson is a short drive as are the HITS show grounds in Saugerties. Eclectic towns like Woodstock and New Paltz are also nearby, as is the amazing Ashokan Reservoir. So come prepared to cook some delicious meals in this kitchen and to sleep well in the new beds. You'll need to do both to have the energy to explore what’s here.
Bedrooms are big and bright. Plenty of closet space and dressers for your use. Beds are new and quite comfy. We have two queen bedrooms and one with a king. One of the queen rooms has a real nice crib. ...moreless

Back in the late 1800's during the British Arts and Crafts era a style of architecture was born and brought to America. The Craftsman era as it's come to be known lasted into the 1930's. Some fine old homes were built in that era and this old beauty is one of them. This old beauty is well located at the end of a dead end road between Rosendale and High Falls and at the base of the Shawangunk ridge. In minutes you can be eating at eclectic places like the Eggs Nest or hiking the amazing Mohonk Preserve. Are you into huge Catskill Mountain views? Hike up to Smileys Point in the Preserve and drink it in. In a few more minutes you can be doing some big time shopping in Kingston or roaming the miles of trails in Minnewaska Park. You better plan on being here awhile!
Year Purchased: 2013
About: We needed a family escape and this is a gem. Our little one is getting old enough to explore and we wanted her to know the wonders of the country. We both have hectic jobs in the city and have gotten up to the Ulster County area every chance we could for our escapes.
Why High Falls: This place is perfectly sited and so convenient. We can climb the mtn and be in the Mohonk Preserve in 5 minutes. In the same time we can be in the coolest little villages like Rosendale or Stone Ridge.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse: Perfect spot for home base for a hectic visit to this special area. Good for some down time as well. Grab a book and sit out on the back porch. Explore your wanna be chef side in the kitchen. Chill and re-charge.
