The Rachel Dumond House is one of the Stockade District’s oldest post and beam constructions. Built in 1811, this Dutch vernacular home boasts original clapboard siding, a gable roof, wavy glass 6/6 pane windows, and hand-planed doors. The spacious rooms have 12″-18″ wide board floors, 8′ ceilings, plaster walls, two working fireplaces, and a Federal-style open staircase.
The 2300 sq ft. house is designed elegantly – minimal, peaceful and tranquil. The furniture is inspired by the functionality and form of mid-century modern.
The outdoor patio is bordered by historic lime and bluestone drywall; enclosed natural backyard provides refuge for birds and wildlife.
Located on a quiet tree-lined street only one block away from the Stockade’s historic corner of four stone houses, the next block brings you to the shops and restaurants of Kingston’s bustling uptown district.
