As New York State’s original capital, the city of Kingston has been known for its preservation of history with a forward-thinking approach, as investors breathe new life into old buildings. This Queen Anne Victorian home is a prime example; as a National Historic Landmark that’s more than a century old, meticulous attention has gone into preserving architectural details like tin ceilings, voice tubes, original hardwood floors with inlaid patterns, and ornate wooden panels, stair rails, and decorative accents.

You might even forget you’re in the busy city while you lounge in the back yard among fruit trees and a Koi pond; that is, until you decide to walk a few blocks to grab a pint at Keegan Ales or shop Uptown Kingston’s various boutiques. But this stately home also features a recently updated kitchen, new roof, and leased solar panels — proving you can teach an old home new tricks.

Though Kingston’s waterfront Rondout neighborhood is quaintly historic in appearance, it’s truly an ever-evolving scene. New shops, eateries, and inns continue to open and flourish in revitalized buildings. Seasonal visitors arrive from near and far by boat to the marinas along the walkable Maurice Hinchey Promenade. People of all ages watch in awe as sailboats and trolleys roll in and out of town.

You’ll find everything from museums to wine bars to soul food within a stone’s throw of each other. Just around the corner from all the happenings sits this nearly-hidden gem of the past, with preserved period details such as ornate iron radiators, hand-carved wood accents, built-in cabinetry, sliding pocket doors, and more.

With a wraparound porch, front and back parlors, and a grand dining room, this is an ideal home to host family and friends before walking to one of the neighborhood’s lively parades or heritage festivals.
