Renovated Historic Home For Sale in Kingston NY
Kingston’s “cool factor” is reaching a fever pitch. It seems a week doesn’t pass without some magazine adding Kingston to their top 5 or 10 best places to move or visit list. I think we all know why. Kingston IS INDEED cool! Those of us who have lived and done business here for ages feel that cool in our bones. Each new restaurant, shop, community organization and initiative make it a better place to call home. Now the rest of the world wants to join us here in the Hudson Valley!
The attention isn’t just an illusion. Kingston’s real estate market is being affected by the rise in “cool factor”. In the months of January through March the number of properties sold in Kingston this year was up 21% over the same period last year, and the average sales price was up 17%. People are attracted to the rare dichotomy of city amenities and small town spirit that Kingston presents. Buyers want homes with historic character, walkability, and a maintenance level that won’t overwhelm them so they can have the freedom to enjoy life and participate in the community. What they want is a home in Kingston just like this one.
23 Lindsley Avenue is 100% buyer-ready. It has just undergone a head-to-toe, gutted-to-the studs renovation. The new systems, roof, windows, floors, bathrooms and kitchen are sure to keep whoever snaps it up worry free for years to come.
The appeal of this two story home starts with the exterior. The traditional L shaped two-story structure has clapboard siding that has been freshly painted in subdued Victorian colors – very charming, but not too crazy. The wrap around porch is the first standout feature, with room for card games, neighbor watching, and brewing sun tea on the front steps. Out back is a deck for enjoying coffee and bird watching, and a back yard that is just the right size for playing and/or creating a landscaped oasis without breaking the bank.

If you were to step through the welcoming red front door you wouldn’t be anything but completely pleased with the renovation. Everywhere you turn there is light. The historic character of the home remains; with lovely trim, paneled doors and colors that harken back to the home’s history, but fit perfectly with today’s aesthetic. The kitchen is truly lovely. New cabinets, tile, windows, and warm butcher-block counters invite you to whip up a masterpiece of locavore cuisine (with produce from the Kingston Farmers’ Market, of course). The two bathrooms have been redone with an elegant simplicity that is perfect. A vase of flowers from the same Farmer’s Market and you’re work is done! Four bedrooms give you plenty of space for family and friends. Here’s the best part, the price is so affordable, and the home in such perfect condition, that you could have it furnished in real style with fabulous historically appropriate or mid-century antiques from nearby Saugerties and Hudson for well under $200,000 and be ready to jump into the Kingston lifestyle with both feet in just a couple of fun-filled, treasure-hunting weeks.
This home is situated perfectly to enjoy that lifestyle. Lindsley Avenue is walking distance to the Rondout district with its laid-back waterfront vibe, shops, restaurants, and wine bars. It also sits amidst several of Kingston’s parks. If you’re coming from NYC it will be as if you never left home (except the number of times a day you’ll hear a car horn here will likely be somewhere around .005). There’s Kingston Point Park with a dog park, a great playground for kids, a BMX park, and access to the Hudson for Kayaking (they even launch Kayak lessons from the park!). Rotary Park is right across the street, with a pavilion, charcoal grills, and waterfront walking trails, you can have a house party that extends beyond the bounds of your property!
If you too think Kingston is cool then now is the time to snap up a great house like this one. For more information contact Karen Sullivan, or Timothy Hurley at Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty in Kingston at 845-331-5357.
