Kingston is a historic city of 23,000 in Ulster County. This quirky little house is about half a mile from Rondout Creek, in the revitalized district near the waterfront. It is a block from Broadway, a major commercial artery that runs through the city, and two miles southeast of the Stockade District, another node of development, with boutiques, galleries, bars and restaurants. The cultural and recreational attractions of Woodstock, N.Y., are about 20 minutes northwest. The George Washington Bridge is about 90 miles south.

Size: 1,508 square feet

Price per square foot: $258

Indoors: Masonry walls exposed in the living room and kitchen suggest that the rear portion of this house is solid stone. (It would also explain why floor plates don’t line up.)

The main level has exposed rafters and wood floorboards. The home’s single bathroom is to the right of the staircase, just opposite the front door, and includes a tub with a flat, rectangular shower head.

Turning right from the foyer takes you into the living room. At the end, an archway in a stone wall and a couple of steps conduct you down into the kitchen, which has a wall of cabinets with open upper shelving and room for a small breakfast area near a window overlooking a courtyard. Beyond the kitchen is a laundry room and a mechanicals room.

At the top of the stairs is a bedroom with a painted-tile ceiling, a walk-in closet and a windowed niche off to the side. A few steps down is a windowed space that could be another bedroom. It connects to a third room that is currently being used as a studio and has unfinished wood floors and a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and a storage loft.

Outdoor space: The studio has a new glass door that brings light into the room and steps down to the courtyard, which has a koi pond and a storage shed. The brick driveway parks two cars.

Taxes: $5,749 ($5,102, if the house is used as a primary residence)
