537 Main Street, Kingston, NY 12401
Located on a sleepy country road sits this fully furnished, entirely turnkey enchanting 1800s schoolhouse that has been converted into a sophisticated loft-like residence. Currently a weekend home and highly profitable short-term rental (#6 on AirBNB's Global "Most Liked" properties), the home is the perfect blend of old-world aesthetics and new world amenities. If you're looking for a profitable short-term rental and/or a second home in close proximity to Kingston (10 mins) this property is not to be missed. Interior details include a slate floored cloak room with original 'boys' and 'girls' entrances, an open floor plan with 20' high tin ceilings and an abundance of 12' windows providing ample natural light and evoking a NYC loft vibe, 200-year old hard pine floors discovered and rehabilitated by the current owners, expansive original wainscoting, a stylish raised kitchen area with high-end appliances, cathedral ceilings in the spacious ensuite primary bedroom (part of the recent addition), two full bathrooms outfitted with antique fixtures and a chandelier, as well as many additional period details throughout. Outside you'll find a heated in-ground saline pool and cabana, a large front porch, raised flower and vegetable garden beds, stone walkways and lovingly landscaped grounds. In addition, there are two standalone cottages, one the year-round third bedroom and the other currently a home gym that could serve as a fourth bedroom or home office by adding insulation and a heating source. Unique properties with this mix of charm, character, functionality and proximity to Kingston rarely hit the market. It's a one-of-a-kind of property that needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
