A Happy Home, Where History Meets Modern Comforts. Stone, wood, and the perfect blend of antiquity & modern conveniences, Thornwood, c. 1770, has been meticulously and lovingly renovated & restored preserving historic elements at every delightful turn. Thornwood is set back on one of the most desirable roads in New Paltz and privately sited on 5.5 gorgeous acres with a large pond, sprawling lawns, mature trees, established perennial gardens, and just the right amount of woods with direct access to rail trail. The heavy lifting has been done! Just move in and enjoy all Thornwood has to offer. In addition to the restoration of the original portion of the house, the current owners, stewards of this magical property, added three dormers, two porches, and a two-story wood-frame, sun-filled 1,156 square foot addition with mudroom, eat-in kitchen, and screened-in porch. The fenced veggie and herb garden is a few steps from the kitchen door. Two original dutch doors grace the front of the house. One leads to a front foyer and sports an antique doorbell, the second creates a warm welcome to the spacious kitchen that includes a mudroom with cubbies, a half bath, and Vermont Casting woodstove. The entertainment-sized kitchen features soapstone countertops, 2 dishwashers, 3 sinks, 6-burner stove, 2 ovens, 30" deep base cabinets for extra storage, and a wall of 9-over-6 windows (matching originals) overlook the patio and pond maximizing light. A pass-through window is handy for outdoor entertaining. Conveniently located next to the kitchen is a spacious dining room with a one-of-a-kind commissioned mural in the 19th-century itinerant-painter style of Rufus Porter. It tells the story of the house and its habitants as it evolved over 240+ years. Continue the tradition and add your story in this unique way. First floor also includes, a living room, a library with built-ins and a box-bed that houses a Murphy bed, a family/game/music room (the former kitchen), foyer, laundry room, and one of TWO master ensuite bedrooms with bidet. All of the bathrooms feature high end fixtures & finishes including polished marble, rustic stone, heated floors blending old & new. The second floor master ensuite bedroom includes stunning views of the pond, vaulting ceiling, reclaimed hardwood floor, built-in cabinets, stunning bath and a lovely sitting room to ensure privacy and comfort. Other bedrooms share the same comfort & warmth as the rest of the house with wonderful views from every window. The details of this house must be seen to really appreciate. Massive beams, wide board flooring, deep window sills, original and locally hand-crafted hardware and lighting, copper downspouts, flashing and dormer roofs. The new addition had several additional treatments to ensure it blended with the historic portion of the house. No detail has been spared in the renovation and restoration to create this incredibly charming and warm home and property. Don't miss the one-hundred-year-old carriage house recently renovated to include a stunning second floor studio. The ground floor features a heated workshop with sink, two storage bays, and room for one to two (tightly parked) cars if needed. Upstairs you'll feel like you're in a tree house and will never want to leave! Original restored floor and ceiling, heat/a/c, bathroom, and a wall of windows overlooking pond are just a few of the features awaiting the new owners. This property has direct access to the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail and is a easy walk to Mountain Laurel Waldorf School and the vibrant Village of New Paltz and all a university town has to offer. In addition, this home is an easy stroll or bike ride down the street to one of the area's most beloved organic farms for seasonal veggies, eggs, berries, flowers and more!

More About Me


Helen knows the area thoroughly and showed us a number of properties in New Paltz. She was extremely patient as we decided to not pursue a few, often after multiple visits. Then, for the property we bought, she called us minutes after it became listed, got us the first showing, and we made an offer that was accepted. The house was not shown to any other parties and we had a signed contract and closed quickly. Through every step, including about the mortgage application, we received excellent guidance. Helen really came through for us and we now have a house we are truly happy with. Allen Ross
A joy to work with. Really not what I had come to expect. Straightforward, an advocate, not treating my small sale as anything lesser. I hope I have the opportunity to work with her again. I will definitely pass her name along! Itty - New Paltz
