About the property

Sweet old stone home set on 7 plus acres in mint condition with pool and cabana

If you got out a dictionary and looked up the word 'character' you'd find a picture of this place. If only the walls could speak to us and tell us all the things this old home has seen. It's owners have taken over the care of her and are gracious enough to share her with you. Parts of the home such as the stone work and wide board floors give a hint to it's true vintage. Other parts like the new kitchen will delight your urges to create that perfect meal. You will need some fuel because you're going to be very busy here. The Mohonk Preserve and Minnewaska State Park would take you weeks to see it all. The countless miles of old carriage trails and breath taking Catskill Mtn vistas will impress you and they will bring you back another day. Our old beauty is a perfect home base for your adventures here. You will find lots of comfy spaces to read or relax, nice fire place to sit beside, wireless and flat screens and all the comforts of home. The bedrooms are bright and comfy. The main bathroom is spacious. You'll have a covered side porch and an open porch and lets not forget the big pool to play in, complete with cabana. The home sits on 7 plus acres of gorgeous land that is nicely landscaped and has acres of open lawn for the kids to rumble. The village of New Paltz is only 3 miles away and has everything you could need. Plenty of shops to browse and soooo many good places to eat. If you need a good walk the Rail Trail in the village goes on forever. Bring your bikes! The Wallkill and the Hudson Rivers are close by for excellent fishing. You better figure on a few more days here! Do know that I-87 borders the property and makes some back ground noise.

About Bruce Stalnaker

We truly love this piece of heaven we found a few years back. We're working to restore and protect the old girl now. We're happy to share it with folks who will respect and treat it like we do.

Bruce Stalnaker purchased this chateau / country house in 2010

The yard is gorgeous and the home has such amazing lines. The new kitchen is a dream to work in.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Close to NYS Thruway. 90 minutes from deep in the city. Gorgeous old home. Pool. Huge yard. Pond. Hard to find a better vacation escape.

We spend as much time as we can here and work towards making it a bit nicer every year. This year it's the pool and cabana getting a work over. Last big project was the kitchen. You'll find this home to be very comfy and that it has everything you'll need as a home away from home. Hardest part will be finding the time to see and do it all while here.

Few places cooler than New Paltz. The village is alive and the buzz there never stops. Walk around and try out the excellent restaurants and check out the small shops. Our beautiful old stone home is minutes from the active village and minutes from the train or major highway that will bring you here. Once here you won't have enough time to truly see it all but do squeeze in Minnewaska State Park and the Mohonk Preserve somehow. This home will be an excellent home base for your adventures.
