Friday Real Estate Porn: Residential + Commercial in Shokan, $965,000

Is your dream to open a restaurant upstate? A furnishings store? Upstate’s first drive-thru wine bar (just joking). I’m loathe to proselytize, but I have to admit this place looks pretty cool. It’s on Route 28, the main drag west of I-87 from Kingston, and has two acres with a contemporary residence behind it. The original building, from 1948, seems to have been a curio shop, a restaurant and a garage in its past lives, and it would be great if someone would buy it and open an animation studio/educational video company (then hire my husband so we can move up there). According to the listing, some 15,000 people drive by it every day. If you could get 10 percent of them to stop by…. Stats on the jump.
