Fully Remodeled Historical Home in Upstate New York Cohousing Community

General Information

Built in 1840, this unique millkeeper’s house has been updated, expanded and modernized to offer the best of character, charm and modern convenience. The private driveway and large property overlooks the Esopus Creek waterfall.

The house for sale is the oldest (original to the property) in the community. It has eight rooms, with an open living room, dining and kitchen floor plan. There is one bathroom on the main floor and three rooms/bedrooms upstairs. There is a finished lower level, decks overlooking the waterfall and the "rapids,” and a large private yard, creating beautiful indoor and outdoor possibilities. The house has been extensively remodeled and updated since last sold.

This home is one of 19 individually owned homes, which collectively share 10 wooded acres, an organic community garden, a water-front beach on the Esopus Creek, a boat house, and a wood-working shop. The Common House is central to the community (in non-pandemic times) and is the place where community members gather to socialize, dine together a few evenings per week, attend meetings and activities, or use for private purposes.

The Common House boasts a professional kitchen, living room with lots of seating and a gas fireplace, a large dining room that seats 40, a laundry room and kids’ playroom. All these amenities are available to our homeowners and all were built since the 1990s.
An interested purchaser should intend that the house be their primary residence rather than a vacation home, and will be expected to contribute to the community fabric by participating in monthly meetings and groundswork days, committee work, sharing meals, and general neighborliness.
