So many people come to Hudson Valley - Catskills Real Estate Agents looking for their “place in the country”. Sometimes when we delve deeper, we find their dream is really “small village living”, or “small city living”. Luckily Hudson Valley Real Estate and Catskills Real Estate offer up options for all these lifestyles. For those people who truly want to lead a peaceful, bucolic, country life, there’s a particularly nice home on the market right now that fits the bill perfectly.
One of the nicest things about living in the country is being able to enjoy the byway that brings you home. 231 Hardenburgh Road in Ulster Park is approached via a lovely winding country road that takes you past a Christmas Tree farm, and over a bridge above the Swarte Kill Creek. The Swarte Kill is known not only as a fishing creek, but as a hotspot for birding. Hardenburgh Road is a wonderful place to take a stroll, a bike ride, or an excursion on the small motorized vehicle of your choice.

The current owners of 231 Hardenburgh Road invested a lot of care and love in the gardens and bluestone patios that surround it. Flowers and bushes attract birds and butterflies, and there are two sheds. While the adorable sheds serve their utilitarian purposes well, they also serve an aesthetic one; together with the cape style home, the sheds and gardens create an impression of a comfortable homestead carved carefully from of the country landscape. This homey sanctuary is perched at the edge of a beautiful forested, private hillside. Wouldn’t it be nice to call 2.4 acres of this captivating countryside yours?
Tasteful thought and detail went into every element of designing this home - no feature was overlooked. Outside, the sage colored siding complements the landscape in every season, and the large circular driveway has plenty of room for parking, and makes plowing easy in the winter! A feature that’s easy to appreciate once the snow begins to fall.
Inside, warm natural light and Northern Maple wood flooring welcome you. The interior has a cohesiveness of design that is quite restful – it was thoughtfully devised to avoid overpowering the views of the landscape through the many windows. The common areas have a nice open flow, without sacrificing space and functionality. There’s a mudroom area at the entry, which is key for convenient country living. There’s a breakfast bar that delineates the kitchen from the dining room. This could be used traditionally or as an office/computer space - a household hub. The spacious dining room connects to a screened porch. We have to pause here in order to let the “wonderfulness”of this screened porch fully sink in………….
Everyone who visits 231 Hardenburgh Road is carried away by the screened porch. There couldn’t be a nicer place to sit and chat, read a book, take a break from puttering in the garden, or to birdwatch incognito. In short, it’s lovely porch.
All in all the home has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2,173 square feet. Plenty of space! The second floor has a bonus living area, a bedroom, and a very large office space. The dormers and double windows on the gable ends make the second floor as bright as the first, and contribute nice architectural detail. Custom Wide Strand Bamboo flooring ads warmth and further interest. Just six years old, this home is in pristine move-in condition and lends itself to almost any interior design preference, from antique country, to ultra-modern.
Another attractive element of this home is its location. While it’s pleasant to live in the country, it can be a bit trying when it means sacrificing convenience. That’s not an issue here. Hardenburgh Road is in the Esopus area of Ulster County and just minutes to Woodstock, Kingston, New Paltz, and to Poughkeepsie!
If you’re truly looking for your “place in the country”, don’t overlook 231 Hardenburgh Road in Ulster Park.
