Welcome to the historic stone Hasbrouck House, a true gem dating back to 1846 — minutes from the town center of Highland, which the New York Times called, “A Small Community with a Feel-Good Spirit.”
Situated majestically high on the lot on a 1.4-acre oasis that abuts the Hudson Valley Rail Trail — yet just a ¼ mile to the town center — this property truly is the best of both worlds.
Upon entry, you'll be delighted to find a modern kitchen with new granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. A delightful built-in breakfast nook adds a cozy touch, perfect for enjoying your morning coffee. The home also features a formal dining room, an elegant living room complete with a fireplace, and a study with built-in bookshelves — ideal for quiet moments of reading or an office space. A convenient half bath rounds out the main level. You'll also discover the covered balcony that provides a serene view of the massive front lawn, creating an ideal spot for an afternoon tea break!
The upper floor offers a spacious ensuite primary bedroom that’s light and bright with new skylights. Two additional bedrooms provide comfortable accommodations, while a full bathroom and a convenient laundry area add to the overall functionality of this historic beauty. The recently installed carpet adds a touch of modern comfort, but underneath lies the original wood floors, preserving the home's timeless character.
The walk-out lower floor is a true treasure, housing two generously sized flex rooms with a fireplace that creates a cozy ambiance for various uses. An additional bathroom and ample storage space complete this level.
The exterior of the home has seen thoughtful updates, including a new metal roof and a rebuilt chimney, ensuring both beauty and functionality. Privacy fencing graces the majority of the backyard, providing a sense of seclusion and security. A single-car detached garage and a spacious barn with an additional garage space (plus large loft) offer plenty of room for vehicles, storage, or creative projects.
The yard is a true outdoor paradise, featuring mature trees and plantings surrounding a large stone patio perfect for outdoor entertaining. Best of all, this property borders the Hudson Valley Rail Trail in the back, providing a direct connection to enjoy the beauty of the local landscape.
Conveniently located between the thruway and the Hudson River in Highland, this home is close to so much! It is just down the street from Hudson Ale Works and surrounded by some of the area's best orchards and farm markets, most of which now also offer food and special programming like concerts, dances, etc. like Wilklow Orchard, Twin Star, and DuBois Farms (market, cafe, tavern). It’s also just 10-15 minutes to dining and shopping in New Paltz and Poughkeepsie and 25-30 minutes to other popular towns such as Kingston and Beacon. Getting to and from the city is also a snap — just under a 90-minute drive to the George Washington Bridge, or via Metro North in Poughkeepsie or the Trailways Bus in New Paltz.
