This Light and Bright Hurley Home Is a Historic Property

On over 12 acres of picturesque land, this Hurley home blends historic charm with modern amenities, including a saltwater pool.

New on the market for $2.35 million in Ulster County is a Georgian stone house on Hurley Avenue. The picturesque property, which is nestled on just over 12 acres of verdant land, was originally built in 1688 before being rebuilt in 1803. Listed by Upstate Curious, the home exudes history and charm, having been involved in notable Hudson Valley events from the 1700s.

According to former historian for the Town of Hurley Jim Decker, the property, historically known as the Schepmoes House, is really two houses in one. “The present kitchen area is the original building, a one-room cottage owned by Derik Schepmoes in the 1680s. The original house was burned by the British troops during Vaughn’s Campaign on October 16, 1777. It was the last house to be burned on Hurley Avenue as the troops moved towards the hamlet of Hurley,” notes Decker.

In 1803, the remains of the original building were repaired and enlarged to include the two-story rural Georgian structure that characterizes the house today. With five bedrooms and two full bathrooms, the Hurley home contains a meticulously updated interior that honors old-world charm.


On the first floor, a spacious eat-in kitchen, fitted with modern appliances like a Wolf gas range, Sub-Zero fridge, and wine fridge, is complemented by radiant heat floors, abundant counter space, and custom cabinetry. Moving into the grand double parlors, tall windows high ceilings, and built-ins highlight these entertaining spaces. In the living room, a wood-burning fireplace adds warmth and ambiance, while a dining room, full bathroom, and office complete the first level.

The 12-acre property also includes a two-car detached garage with additional loft or studio space, a serene saltwater pool, and a barbecue on the patio. In the heart of Ulster County, this Hurley home is only a short trip away from beloved Hudson Valley towns like Kingston, Woodstock, and Rhinebeck.
