Here’s an opportunity to live in the booming “creative capital” of the Hudson Valley. A restored 150-year-old cottage in Kingston has hit the market for $445,555. Located at 1143 Sawkill Road, the incredible property was built in 1870 and comes with an adjoining artist’s barn. The two-bedroom, two-bath home measures about 1,250 square feet and sits on one acre of land, surrounded by the nearby woods and waterfalls of the Bluestone Wild Forest.

According to the listing, the roadside cottage has been in the family for many generations and the most recent owner, an “artist/designer,” restored and modernized the home with the help of local craftsmen. Both the custom exterior and the interior, including the beams and built-ins, have been renewed and maintained.

When you enter the home, a central staircase separates the living and dining areas. Custom woodwork, a brick fireplace framed by a dark wood mantle and a sliver of stained glass windows, and beamed ceilings make this room unique.

A unique farmhouse-style kitchen boasts a tin ceiling, new appliances, and a handmade butcher block island.

A corner dining room is drenched in natural light thanks to two oversized windows. It also features a lovely beamed ceiling, corner built-in, and more custom woodwork.

Upstairs, the cozy cottage vibe continues with two open-layout bedrooms that are nice and bright thanks to multiple windows and skylights. You can access the wrap-around upper deck on this floor, which enjoys views of the surrounding woods and waterfalls.

Located in Ulster County, Kingston has been a hot spot of real estate activity in recent years, thanks to its low prices, foodie scene, and proximity to nature. As 6sqft reported in August, Kingston saw the fastest-rising home prices in the country last year, with some New Yorkers fleeing the five boroughs during the pandemic.

The home at 1143 Sawkill Road sits just north of the Bluestone Wild Forest, a 3,000-acre Catskills nature preserve with hiking and biking trails, and sits between Woodstock and hip downtown Kingston, considered “the new Brooklyn” by some.
