Upstate Jane: New Paltz MCM Gem with Great Bones: $265K and Dropping!

I had my eye on this gem for a while, but decided I liked living in Woodstock too much to even visit it. I feared I would get a crush and then make some stupid rash decision…Okay, okay, we DID cruise it, and it was pretty cool in person and in a cool neighborhood. But we never went inside and got to know the house. I did keep updating myself on its price though, and even though I have already signed contracts on another house I thought of this pad for all of YOU out there reading Upstater.  With clean lines, a vaulted ceiling, a wall length stone fireplace and original details plus windows galore  this is a great house.  Click here for full listing.

Address: 15 Cedar Ridge Road, New Paltz NY 12561

Stats: Beds:3 Bed Baths:2 Bath House Size:1,884 Sq Ft Lot Size:2.55 Acres

Price: currently $265k Taxes: (according to Realtor.com) $7697

I believe that with some trimming in the backyard of your 2.55 acres- you may even get views of the Gunks! It has some GREAT bones and just needs a little updating. Naturally no pics of the bathroom leads me to the anticipation of walking into a carpeted bathtub surround, or something equally disturbing but let’s not get negative! It could be WONDERFUL! Not sure what those shoji screens are there for, but they were adamant in the listing info that they are NOT included- Nooo problem. For those unfamiliar with New Paltz, it is a cute college town, home of SUNY New Paltz. It has some great restaurants, bars and cute shops. It also is very close to Mohonk trails, wineries and the Gunks for those climbers out there. Although not on the train line, it is about an hour and half to hour 45 with traffic from Manhattan and is on the Trailways bus route!  The house rather reminds me of these killer digs below, owned by designer Amy Butler and her husband David. It has all the makings to be just as fabulous! For a full house tour of their home via Apartment Therapy, click here.

  1. If those are cork floors, I’m going to have to go look at this place myself! I have a house crush!

  2. Megan, you’re freaking me out. I’ve looked at every house you did…..Jen

  3. Part of me wishes I would have bought this place! If I had an extra lump of cash laying around I would! It has so much potential. It is practically perfect for a someone who wants to do a little renovating and decorating. It is a slam dunk.

  4. i love this house so much it hurts.

  5. I know, I am having buyers remorse on my new house…DOH! It used to be more money, which helped me choose another place but at this price??!??!?!
    Please someone buy this place so I can help you renovate the bits, decorate it and turn it into a SPARKLING DIAMOND JEWEL!!!!
