The Upstater: Going Gothic

Fridays at 11, the Upstater website brings you a selection of houses north of New York City. This week: homes with a Gothic touch.

 

88 Stormville Road, Hopewell Junction

 

Hopewell Junction is lousy with McMansions, but there are a few stand-out properties that remind you of upstate pre-housing boom. This is one of them.

 

88 Stormville Road in Hopewell Junction sits on five acres and is close to the Taconic: not much more than an hour from NYC, depending on traffic. It has three beds, 1.5 baths and 2,230 square feet. Taxes are estimated at less than $7,000, which is pretty good for upstate. Any thoughts on the hand-painted mural in the entryway?

200 Route 9H, Claverack

Claverack is a beautiful spot: a rural hamlet just outside of Hudson, and a short drive to Great Barrington. And although this is on what passes for a main drag in those parts, it’s a pretty beautiful property.

It passes the kitchen test, and there’s a pool, views, wraparound porch, eight beds, four fireplaces. We could go on. They’re asking $595,000 and the taxes are less than $10,000 a year.

196 Montgomery Street, Newburgh

Now just to torture you, this amazing Calvert Vaux Gothic Victorian, two blocks from the Hudson, was recently listed for $315,000. We were interested in it ourselves, but apparently it’s just off the market. Still, the pictures are worth ogling.

  • Love the Newburgh house. Actually, I love Newburgh! I was there last week for a pint at the Newburgh Brewing Company after the Route 218 Hike & Bike (West Point to Cornwall).

    • We’re big fans of the brewing co. And there are a couple of other houses for sale on this street, and near it, that are amazing!

      • I will be sure to visit Montgomery Street when I am there next. We usually stick by the Newburgh waterfront: the gorgeous esplanade, by the waterside restaurants, and we are planning to see a show in September at the Railroad Playhouse, at a converted historic railroad station (the theater shares space with a pizzeria, just on the ridge above the river). My friend’s kids row with the Newburgh Rowing Club and I went to a regatta there recently and took a gander around, but somehow missed Montgomery Street. Since this is a Brooklyn blog, everyone might be interested to know that Chris Basso, the owner of the new Newburgh Brewing Company was, for many years, a part of the Brooklyn Brewery. Delicious peat moss ale, I think that’s what it was called. Anyway, yay Newburgh. Troubled, but cool. Kind of like Sunset Park, ha ha! (my fave unspoiled BK nabe)

  • That mansion is insane. I love it too. Also love the yellow in the Claverack kitchen.

  • LOVE the Newburgh house. Going to have to find that one someday and see it up close. How absolutely charming!

  • Wow, didn’t realize houses in Newburgh were going for that much.
    It sure is a beauty.
