Times' article is included in the home's website. www.633ridgeburyroad.com. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places the home c.1709 is fully restored and includes tax credits for appropriate historical enhancements to the property and has received a professional home inspection rating "above average."
Yours will be the only home in the neighborhood and region built in 1709 including some rare select antiques and completely restored with all the conveniences of a home constructed in 2013. Originally, this 'house in the country' of the Colony of New York was a one room home which today is a 12 room house listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Many of the antique or replicated furnishings are unique to the house and will be included in the house's sale such as the farm table, pantry and other period items in the keeping room valued at several thousands of dollars. Other antiques which will be included in the purchase will be discussed at a showing of the house which can be arranged by phone call or email listed here. Many other 'in house' antiques are integral in the construction of the house which should be seen to appreciate their value. These include an array of 18th & 19th century American architectural features: wide-plank hard wood floor boards, a keeping-dining room with the original hearth and fireplace adjoining a modern kitchen with new Jenn-Aire appliances, a 6 burner gas stove & grill along a 22' granite countertop. Two parlors, Federal and Victorian, sit on either side of the Greek Revival center hall also containing several antique qualities. An office and bathroom complete the floor plan on the first floor. Upstairs are the master bed and bathroom with 3 walk-in closets, three more bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms with enameled 'old fashioned' cast iron enameled claw-footed tubs, laundry room, storage room and hall sitting area. All only a 70 mile drive or metro train ride to Manhattan. Local stores and services are nearby in Middletown, NY.
