85 Wurts St,

Kingston, New York

$875,000

5 Beds
3 Baths
4,889 Sqft
0.14 Acres

A truly stunning 1863 brick Italianate home on a beautiful, tree-lined street in the historic, quaint and very fashionable Rondout District of Kingston is perfectly located, just a 3-minute walk to the vibrant waterfront, with restaurants, shops and the lively music, art and cultural scene that exemplifies Kingston, New York. Rich with history, this former parsonage was built by Turck and Burhans on the hilltop donated by Thomas Cornell to site the Romanesque Wurts St. Baptist Church and its rectory. His mansion sat diagonally with views of the Hudson River and the company's steamship harbor. Seventeen ministers and their families lived here until 1957 when #85 Wurts became a private residence. Today, this 3264 sq. ft 5 BR, 3 Bath home, has been completely renovated, preserving the exquisite historical details, but with updates to all the important things like the furnace, 200-amp electric service, plumbing, heating, central AC, roofing and architectural features. It has 11 ft. ceilings, 10 fireplaces, a Unico air handling system, 16-zone alarm service, front & back staircases, butler's pantry, pocket doors, raised paneling, 26 windows, storm windows and shutters. A former servants' wing has been converted to His and Her bathrooms with exquisite touches and high-end plumbing and finishes. The third bathroom, also on the 2nd floor, has a charming 3- foot tub and fine detailing. The home has 3 covered porches, a vine-covered loggia, 30 ft. sunken garden with waterfall (which at one time was a lap pool and could be easily converted back to a lap pool again), plus mature trees and perennial beds. The beautiful back yard, garage and driveway are enclosed by a 6 ft iron fence. The sidewalks are bluestone, and the landscaping includes gorgeous specimen trees. Incredible care and great expense has been taken in every aspect of restoring this masterpiece. For anyone who has a passion for history, and beautiful architecture in a fabulous setting, this is a must-see property!
