Circa 1930 Fraleigh Schoolhouse

The construction of this charming and light-filled residence was started in 1929 on land purchased from the Fraleighs, a well-established farmingĀ  family of Red Hook. It remained in operation until 1939 when Red Hook centralized their school district.

Sited on 6.2 acres on the eastern gateway of the Village of Red Hook, it enjoys pastoral views to the West on a quiet, country road.

The front entrance opens to a foyer that leads to an eat-in country kitchen. A hallway leads to a gracious living room with views to the neighboring farm fields. The home offers a master bedroom with sitting room and a newer bath to the rear; two additional bedrooms, and a hall bath. To the rear of the kitchen is an inviting three-season porch for outside dining and rear brick patio. There is also a studio/workshop accessed from the rear porch with half bath as well as a two-car garage. The lower level offers storage and mechanicals.

Its unique architectural features include 9' ceilings, vintage light fixtures, handsome maple flooring and arched doorways.

The acreage is open around the home and features established ornamental shrubs such as hydrangea and rose of sharon. There are also mature hardwoods and fruit trees. The property features walking paths and there are several good locations for a future pool.

The residence is located minutes from the Village and is convenient to Rhinebeck, Amtrak and Bard. This unique and well-maintained home is ideal as a full-time or weekend residence.

Offered at $425,000.
