    Description

    You Cant Buy The Bricks For One Point Six! Be fourth in a short line of owners of this magnificent neo-gothic style building in the heart of Rosendale. Completed in 1896 by the Rosendale Reformed Church during the boom years of the Rosendale Cement industry. The new church and parsonage replaced a wooden colonial structure that burnt in a devastating 1895 fire that consumed about 25 buildings in town. The Church held the building through 1971, until the three congregations of Rosendale, Tillson and Bloomington consolidated in Bloomington as the United Reformed Church. After a 14-year ownership by the Volunteer Firemens Association, it was purchased in 1985 by a young artist who established a hot glass studio and turned the parsonage into a two family. The building became known as The Belltower. The Belltower Glassworks operation was situated in the nave and attracted many community members and visitors from all over the world to experience the dance of glass blowing. In 2012, the 60 x 40 open space was reconfigured and renovated to allow for weddings and events in this inviting environment while the art studio operates on a smaller footprint of the 5,000 square feet of the first floor of the former church. The soaring ceilings and original fir flooring, a stunning front window and the original corner pulpit (a great stage) in addition to a 1950s curved wet bar make for a splendid setting to come together and celebrate. In the rear, there are two tool rooms and a spacious staging area with loading dock and ramp to the parking area. Two restrooms, one wheelchair accessible, and two offices complete the picture. On the second floor of the main building is a 1 BR loft apartment, about 1,600 sq ft. The two 1 BR apartments in the former parsonage are about 900 sq ft and 1,100 sq ft. Situated on half an acre with established gardens, adjacent to municipal parking and the Willow Kiln Park and Joppenbergh Mountain trail. The Empire State Trail that connects NYC to the Canadian border, runs through Rosendale via the famous Rosendale Trestle. The Event Venue is town approved and is operated as an added revenue source to the art studio and residential rental income. In addition to the event venue use, there are many possibilities for this 8,600 sq ft gem on Main Street of this vibrant Hudson Valley Town on the Rondout Creek between Kingston and New Paltz. Be in good neighborhood of the Rosendale Theatre and the Redwing Blackbird Theater, The 1850s House Inn and Tavern, several successful restaurants and eateries, stores, creative places (pottery, candles, pickles and tattoos) and, rumor has it, a soon to open smoothie parlor. Only a few miles from Williams Lake, a planned and to-be-built 800 acre modern, sustainable resort and residential community on the site of the former Williams Lake Hotel.
