Historic Stone Homes For Sale in The Hudson Valley

Hudson Valley Historic Homes For Sale 

The historic home shopper is a special breed. Buyers of historic homes are often willing to put aside the perceived minor inconveniences of buying a home that’s been on this planet longer than they have, in exchange for a look or a feeling they can’t get from newer construction. Sometimes it’s the romance evoked by passing through hand-planed doors with antique knobs as they go through their day. Sometimes it’s cooking in a wide-open country kitchen where generations have kneaded their bread and plucked their chickens. Sometimes, it’s the opposite of what new construction enthusiasts would imagine, it’s the peace of mind that comes with knowing that a structure from the early 1800’s is still square, and solid, and likely to continue be so as it stands the tests of time. Sometimes it’s the chance to use a post and beam barn as a home for their passion, be it painting or raising pigs. The point is, every historic home has any number of features with the power to obsess the right buyer. 

Here are five historic homes that are currently on the market across the Hudson Valley. From different periods in our history, they have one thing in common, details that delight!

Highland Colonial Home For Sale

Colonial Revival For Sale | Highland NY Real Estate

1 Tillson Avenue, Highland - $425,000 

1 Tillson Avenue, a circa 1910 Colonial Revival, is wonderfully grand. A deep front porch invites conversation, card games, and ice cream socials. This home’s most distinctive feature is the generous unpainted American Cherry and Oak trim work throughout – it’s quite rare, and it’s likely to be the first thing here to spark an obsession! Enter the foyer through a massive oak door flanked by 2 sidelights. A classic turning staircase leads to the second floor and wide cherry embellished entries open on parlors to either side of the entry. The grand scale of the foyer continues throughout the large, understated country kitchen, an open second floor hallway and huge airy bedrooms with Palladian windows and beautiful doors. If adherence to period details is important to you, you won’t be disappointed here, even the light fixtures are restored classics. Outside, lush perennial gardens with flowering trees, bushes and flowers such as peony, hydrangea, lilac, wisteria, and azalea abound. If you want to single-handedly bring back Victorian “garden parties”, this is the garden for it. If, in addition, you’re looking for a place to pursue passions there are a couple of options here: the detached 2 car garage and a separate outbuilding (approx. 24’x14’), which currently serves as a charming studio space with electric and plumbing.

213 Lapla Road Stone House in Hudson Valley

Historic Marbletown Stone House For Sale | Kingston Real Estate

213 Lapla Road, Kingston - $1,000,000 

This 1800’s stone house is not only sited in Marbletown, which is known for its density of historic homes (just in case you feel the need to be surrounded by other historic home lovers), but also sits on a parcel of land that fits the period - 29 private acres with a large pond and barn that recalls a time when land was wealth. All that acreage is enhanced by an in-ground gunite pool. Inside, historic details abound: wide board floors and ceilings, exposed beams, exposed stone walls, deep window wells, dormered nooks, and three fireplaces enchant, while careful updates to the kitchen and baths will appeal to those who are looking for just a bit of modern luxury. The clapboard barn both adds to the romance of the property, and presents opportunity to spread out and be creative.
