Located on a sleepy country road in a turn-of-the-century hamlet, this enchanting and historic 1800s schoolhouse 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” Top 10 properties), the home is the perfect blend of old-world aesthetics and new-world amenities.

Entry through a large covered porch leads to a slate floored cloakroom with original ‘boys’ and ‘girls’ entrances – then into an open floor plan with 20’ high tin ceilings. An abundance of 12’ windows provides ample natural light and evokes New York City loft vibes. A cozy wood stove sits between the dining space and kitchen, and the living room, offering warmth and atmosphere to many areas of the house.

Other spectacular details include 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, a heated in-ground saline pool and cabana are the centerpiece, complimented by stone walkways, raised flower and vegetable gardens, and lovingly landscaped grounds.

In addition to the home, there are two cottages: one that is currently a year-round third bedroom and the other 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. For those seeking a turnkey, short-term rental, and/or a second home in close proximity to Kingston (10 mins), this property is not to be missed.
