About 1655 Old Kings Road

The Parsonage is an outstanding & brilliantly preserved example of 18th-century stone architecture in the Hudson Valley. This stately home was established by the Palatine Germans & Dutch in the early 1700s as the clergy house for the Katsbaan Church a couple of miles down the road. Perched on 32 acres, the stone-clad farmhouse overlooks the Catskills with an unobstructed view of the Kaaterskill High Peak, a favorite subject of the Hudson River School painters during the late 19th & early 20th centuries.The Parsonage was built using a rare combination of blue stone & limestone, simple gable trims, original anchor plates peppered throughout the facade, & wavy-glass windows. The French-blue front door leads to a foyer with a light-filled dining room to the left & cozy living room to the right. Ceilings are unusually high for a stone house, with taller windows that allow natural light at all times of the day. A large fireplace anchors the dining room, outfitted with a wood stove. The living room is lined with built-in bookshelves & cabinetry & features a wood-burning fireplace with brick surround. The house has a fully renovated kitchen with beautiful detailing- including reclaimed wide pine wood floors, Bertazzoni appliances, custom cabinets, & exquisite slabs of lightly-veined soapstone. Above the kitchen is an office with mountain views. A recently renovated powder room completes the first floor.The second level has three bedrooms, the primary bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, & the other two bedrooms share an additional full bathroom. In this home's nearly 300 years of existence, its breathtaking view of the Catskills has not changed. Approximately 15 of the 32 acres are meadows with walking paths meandering through it. Two well-seasoned blue stone patios, off the kitchen in the back, create spaces for a relaxing & peaceful outdoor experience. Surrounding the house are mature plantings that bloom from spring to autumn, a stone fountain, & a fenced vegetable garden. Impressive trees are interspersed throughout the property, from an enormous & ancient Catalpa tree to the twin oaks that frame a perfect view of Kaaterskill Peak. An additional structure with electric & featuring barn trims & an exterior woodshed is currently used as a workspace & tool storage, as well as a garage.The Parsonage is located 5 minutes from Saugerties, 15 minutes from Kingston & the village of Woodstock, 25 minutes to Hudson, & under an hour & 45 minutes from New York City.
