Uptown Kingston - Convenient Historic Home For Sale

“Location, Location, Location” – may be Real Estate’s greatest cliché. There’s a reason that so many Real Estate agents emphasize the importance of location; because they’ve seen it all! They’ve seen the couple who have come from the city to start a llama farm on 50 acres in the middle of nowhere, who then go quietly insane when the only “people” to talk to are their llamas. They’ve seen the country mouse who buys a house right near an 8 lane highway because they love its kitchen so much that they think they’ll be able to ignore the sound of “semi’s” passing by as they whip up shrimp tacos on a Saturday night, and find that those “semi’s” are hard to ignore. Real Estate agents encourage their clients to consider the pros and cons of a property’s location because they know it will strongly affect whether or not they will be happy with the home they choose. And they want them to be happy!

Uptown Kingston is a pretty popular location at the moment! The average sale price in Kingston is up 16% over last year at this time and the median sale price is up 12%*. For many people being able to get to restaurants, shops, galleries, parks and events without getting into their car is the desired lifestyle. Maybe they come from the city and want to live more quietly (and cheaply) but don’t want to give up “city life” altogether. Maybe they’re coming from a more rural place to increase the level of convenience in their daily life. Maybe they really love a style of home that’s traditionally built in an urban setting. Maybe they want to be able to walk their poodle at night without wearing a headlamp and a glowing suit!

Enter 136 Wall Street, Kingston.

In 2012 Wall Street was singled out by the American Planning Association as one of its “10 Great Streets in America”. They make their selections based on historical character, “pedestrian scale”, and variety of uses. This is a “location” with a national stamp of approval! Once the home of an influential Kingston doctor and built prior to 1887, 136 Wall Street is a stunning Brick Victorian just waiting for a little primping. While it retains many of its original details like hardwood floors, tin ceilings, window seats, and exterior trims and shutters, the interior is ready for the renovation that will make it the crowning glory of the historic district. 3 well-lit bedrooms, 1.5 baths and 2190 square feet, it also has an enchanting attic with 3 large rooms and some delightful secret spots which are not part of the listed square footage. The attic could be turned into more living space, a studio, or provide lots and lots of storage and a magical spot for hide and seek. Old-home enthusiasts will delight in the details and the possibilities this home offers.

Get to sushi, tacos, museums, bookstores, the farmers market, your bank, fresh chicken, concerts, beautiful flower arrangements, fresh doughnuts and awesome grilled-cheeses by your own volition, 136 Wall Street is just a short distance from the Historic Uptown Stockade District, the bus station to NYC, and the on-ramp for the thruway.

Sometimes the choice to live in-town means trading outdoor space for convenience. That’s not the case here, the home is located on a rare double lot. In front are mature trees and lovely plantings, and the fenced rear yard is ready to become an escape, play space, party space, or a combo of all three. 2 majestic trees that have been standing watch over the yard for decades, have been cared for by an arborist, and are waiting to shade whatever good times come in the future.

If the convenience of in-town life is for you, and you love homes with a history , come take a tour of 136 Wall Street and make it yours.
