For years, New Yorkers have been drawn to the Hudson Valley city of Kingston for its rich history, arts and culture, and proximity to nature, ideal for both a weekend getaway and year-round residence. A new hotel just north of New York City is set to open this spring that will offer 31 individual cabins across 73 acres of lush landscape, providing a coronavirus-safe escape for city dwellers. Located on the site of a former brick factory, Hutton Brickyards has been transformed from a manufacturing property into a laid-back but luxurious riverfront resort with private cabins, a spa, restaurant, and events space.

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.

A report by the National Association of Realtors cited in Bloomberg found that Kingston has the fastest rising home prices in the U.S.
