in­for­ma­tion! oca­tion, Lo­ca­tion, Lo­ca­tion’ may be Real Es­tate’s great­est cliché. There’s a rea­son that so many Real Es­tate agents em­pha­size the im­por­tance of lo­ca­tion; be­cause they’ve seen it all! They’ve seen the cou­ple who have come from the city to start a llama farm on 50 acres in the mid­dle of nowhere, who then go qui­etly in­sane when the only ‘peo­ple’ to talk to are their lla­mas. They’ve seen the coun­try mouse who buys a house right near an 8 lane high­way be­cause they love its kitchen so much that they think they’ll be able to ig­nore the sound of “semi’s” pass­ing by as they whip up shrimp tacos on a Satur­day night, and find that those “semi’s” are hard to ig­nore. Real Es­tate agents en­cour­age their clients to con­sider the pros and cons of a prop­erty’s lo­ca­tion be­cause they know it will strongly af­fect whether or not they will be happy with the home they choose. And they want them to be happy!

Up­town Kingston is a pretty pop­u­lar lo­ca­tion at the mo­ment! The av­er­age sale price in Kingston is up 16% over last year at this time and the me­dian sale price is up 12%*. For many peo­ple be­ing able to get to restau­rants, shops, gal­leries, parks and events with­out get­ting into their car is the de­sired life­style. Maybe they come from the city and want to live more qui­etly (and cheaply) but don’t want to give up “city life” al­to­gether. Maybe they’re com­ing from a more ru­ral place to in­crease the level of con­ve­nience in their daily life. Maybe they re­ally love a style of home that’s tra­di­tion­ally built in an ur­ban set­ting. Maybe they want to be able to walk their poo­dle at night with­out wear­ing a head­lamp and a glow­ing suit!

En­ter 136 Wall Street, Kingston.

In 2012 Wall Street was sin­gled out by the Amer­i­can Plan­ning As­so­ci­a­tion as one of its “10 Great Streets in Amer­ica”. They make their se­lec­tions based on his­tor­i­cal char­ac­ter, “pedes­trian scale”, and va­ri­ety of uses. This is a “lo­ca­tion” with a na­tional stamp of ap­proval! Once the home of an in­flu­en­tial Kingston doc­tor and built prior to 1887, 136 Wall Street is a stun­ning Brick Vic­to­rian just wait­ing for a lit­tle primp­ing. While it re­tains many of its orig­i­nal de­tails like hard­wood floors, tin ceil­ings, win­dow seats, and ex­te­rior trims and shut­ters, the in­te­rior is ready for the ren­o­va­tion that will make it the crown­ing glory of the his­toric dis­trict. 3 well-lit bed­rooms, 1.5 baths and 2190 square feet, it also has an en­chant­ing at­tic with 3 large rooms and some de­light­ful se­cret spots which are not part of the listed square footage. The at­tic could be turned into more liv­ing space, a stu­dio, or pro­vide lots and lots of stor­age and a mag­i­cal spot for hide and seek. Old-home en­thu­si­asts will de­light in the de­tails and the pos­si­bil­i­ties this home of­fers.

Get to sushi, tacos, mu­se­ums, book­stores, the farm­ers mar­ket, your bank, fresh chicken, con­certs, beau­ti­ful flower ar­range­ments, fresh dough­nuts and awe­some grilled-cheeses by your own vo­li­tion, 136 Wall Street is just a short dis­tance from the His­toric Up­town Stock­ade Dis­trict, the bus sta­tion to NYC, and the on-ramp for the thruway.

Some­times the choice to live in-town means trad­ing out­door space for con­ve­nience. That’s not the case here, the home is lo­cated on a rare dou­ble lot. In front are ma­ture trees and lovely plant­ings, and the fenced rear yard is ready to be­come an es­cape, play space, party space, or a combo of all three. 2 ma­jes­tic trees that have been stand­ing watch over the yard for decades, have been cared for by an ar­borist, and are wait­ing to shade what­ever good times come in the fu­ture. If the con­ve­nience of in-town life is for you, and you love homes with a his­tory , come take a tour of 136 Wall Street and make it yours.
