Welcome to the Thomas L Southwick House in the Old Stockade in historic Kingston, New York. This is a Mixed Use Property with Variances that go with the property. The storied Thomas L. Southwick house is located on stately Fair Street in Uptown Kingston. On Fair street and surrounding blocks one finds many fine examples of America’s early colonial and Victorian architectural history. This Victorian home was completely renovated with superb attention to historic details and is a few minutes’ walk from the Senate House State Historic Site. While this mansion-like home is on a quiet residential block amongst other stately homes, it is just steps away from many new shops, restaurants and cafes that are blossoming in the best neighborhood in Uptown Kingston. The City is thriving with planned and proposed development including boutique hotels, artist lofts and new walking & bike trails which will transform the urban landscape. The location is steps away from many shops, historic sites, restaurants, cafes, music venues, and location of city festivals and the Kingston farmers market. The current owner renovated the 3,974 square foot home and established the exceptionally reviewed “ A Kingston Bed and Breakfast and the affiliated “Kingston Tea Room.” While maintaining a private owner's suite, the bed and breakfast is spread over two floors with museum like tall ceilings and has Five rooms with private baths, all beautifully restored and maintaining original Queen Anne style elements. This property has mixed use zoning allowing for offices, and the Bed and Breakfast and tea room permit opens up many creative possibilities for unique live work situation. There’s multiple entries to the first floor allowing many configurations. There’s a wonderful gourmet kitchen in the home with enough space to have an office area, separate dining table and a private living room that leads to the outside. There’s a charming, private, fenced backyard to the property accessible from both sides of the house with patio and outside sitting area with many plantings and trees. The partially finished, full basement has a half bath, laundry area and storage rooms to store all those cases of wine you need to entertain and regale guests upstairs. While parking on this part of Fair Street is available, there is also a private driveway that can comfortably fit two cars and enable easy off street deliveries. A variance that runs with the property allows for additional on street parking rights. Come see this one of a kind home and be among the new creative residents flocking to Kingston, New York State's first capital, injecting new energy into this vibrant, historic area.
