The Oldest Home For Sale in America is Located in New Paltz
The oldest house in the country to hit the market happens to be right here in the Hudson Valley and it's spectacular.
Realtor.com recently released a ranking of the ten oldest houses hitting the market this week and a beautiful New Paltz home from 1707 tops the list. Over 300 years old, the home is located on Hugeont Street, famous for its historic stone houses.
Located on over three secluded acres overlooking the Wallkill River, the listing describes the area as "idyllic," noting its view, "spectacular sunsets" and abundance of peace and quiet. After owning the home for over 70 years, the current owners have reluctantly decided to put it on the market, creating a rare opportunity for someone looking to own a piece of history.
The main living area is in a structure that used to be an artist's studio. The architecture blends perfectly into the style of the original stone house located just behind it. Features include tucked-away bedrooms, vaulted ceilings and a massive studio-sized window to let in the Wallkill River views.
There's also a barn on the property next to rolling fields and a wooded dell. All of the structures are being offered as-is for $550,000.
The original 1700's stone house is currently serving as a garage area, but has been lovingly maintained by the current owners for over seven decades. Those who are interested in the home will need to schedule a viewing, but if you're just interested in peeking inside this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity you can scroll through the photos below.
