Description: Natural escapes top the list of reasons people flock to the Hudson Valley. Surrounded by verdant woods, quiet Ulster County towns like Lloyd offer quite a bit of charm.

This property stands on a quaint cul-de-sac in the Hudson Valley, with 1.2 acres of mature trees adding to the sense of privacy and tranquility. Originally constructed in 1984, the entirely remodeled three-bedroom home features plenty of modern elements.

Fascinating architectural details enhance the jet-black exterior. Spend early mornings and late nights on the expansive front deck. Whether you’re seeking summer stargazing or fall leaf peeping, this cozy outdoor space will be used all the time.


Upon stepping into the home, the 1,410-sq-ft interior continues the black motif with highly effective accents. The synergy between natural wood elements—like exposed beams—and ultra-modern design perfectly reflects the spirit of the region.

An open concept floor plan, cathedral ceilings, and breathtaking skylights generate a comfortable, spacious living area. In addition, natural light from massive windows pours into the home throughout the day. During the cold winter months, warm up next to the stunning wood-burning stove. It’s truly the centerpiece of a lovely living room.


This space leads right into a sizable dining room. Artistic modern lighting fixtures sweeten the scene for communal meals. Picture windows look out into the backyard—perfect for parents who want to watch their kids playing outside while they prepare dinner.


In fact, Hudson Valley home chefs will adore the gourmet kitchen. Gorgeous white quartz countertops contrast with bronze hardware and black cabinets. Plus, the breakfast bar is convenient for quick morning meals.

In addition, the main floor also includes a den and one of the home’s three bedrooms. The den is an ideal candidate for a home office, with its own glorious window. Adjacent to the ground floor bedroom, a fully remodeled bathroom boasts an ultra-modern floating vanity. Likewise, the custom tile shower is dreamy and luxurious.


Up the staircase—a statement piece with cable railings—residents will find an additional two bedrooms. One of these bedrooms includes a full private bathroom with its own shower tub and double vanity. Of course, it also has appealing custom tile floors. The other bedroom on the western side comes equipped with vast walk-in closets and a brand-new en suite bathroom.


Asking price: $650,000

Selling Points: In under 15 minutes, residents of this beautiful remodel can be strolling through downtown New Paltz. Likewise, the magnificent Walkway Over the Hudson State Park is an even shorter drive away. Incomparable privacy makes this custom home a romantic retreat for couples and a natural wonderland for families. Similarly, young professionals working from home will appreciate the peace and quiet.
