Approximately 40 years ago, a young couple found a house that many would have passed right by. It was dilapidated, and nearly unlivable. But they saw the beauty underneath the rough exterior, and decided to save that home from certain death.
In the years since then, that couple provided plenty of elbow grease and love to what was once a boarded-up building. They restored what they could, and improved upon what they could not. And now, nearly four decades later, the time has come to give her up to the next owner; hopefully someone who will love her as much as they have.
220 Dosen Rd in the town of Walkill is a 2000 square foot Victorian beauty built in 1897. She has original yellow pine hardwood floors, thick pocket doors, beautiful stained glass windows, two usable wells - one hand dug and one drilled, two heating sources – propane and coal/wood, built-in-bookcases and hutches, chestnut moldings and a fabulous wrap around porch. In addition, a sunny breakfast nook with a ventilating skylight and radiant heat was added, with access to a native stone patio, flower beds and mature landscaping. The kitchen was updated to include cherry cabinets and a JenAir stove. Not only that, the house sits on 10 acres which has been perc-tested and may be sub-dividable. The property also has stone walls, large rolling fields and woods with a stream and pond.
To make this home even more valuable (if such a thing is possible), there is also a one car garage under the house, and two separate pole barns. The 16’x24’ building is currently set up with one bay, and the 32’x48’ barn has three-bays. The right hand bay is insulated and outfitted with heat for use as a work shop and also comes with an air compressor.
The home is located in the Pine Bush school district and has been listed at the fantastic price of $280K.
