New Paltz, New York, in Ulster County, is a little over a two-hour drive from the city. It's a thriving college town, thanks to SUNY New Paltz, and outdoor enthusiasts can find lots to do here. There's Mohonk Mountain House, a sprawling 1869 Victorian resort where you can try winter activities like snowshoeing and ice-skating, or just chill in the spa. Other New Paltz highlights include Historic Huguenot Street, a living history museum that shows how New Paltz's first settlers lived; proximity to several state parks, including Minnewaska State Park and the Mohonk Preserve; and a number of wineries, farms, and art galleries.

If any of that sounds appealing to you, consider this three-bedroom, two-bath modern house at 11 Van Kleeck Ave., now on the market for $419,900. The house, built in 1984, was inspired by minimalist Scandinavian design, and has clean lines and lots of light-colored wood.

The living space has an open plan, with big picture windows and recessed lighting.

There's a deck just off the dining room.


The kitchen has Quartz countertops, artsy light fixtures, and an island.

The master bedroom is spacious and light-filled, with light wood floors.

Here's one of the baths, which has been recently remodeled.

It looks like this one of the other bedrooms.

The lower level is finished, with a kitchenette and extra bath.

Here's the deck, which overlooks the house's wooded private property.

The house is secluded, making it a real nature ramble.

Other highlights include a one-car garage and a finished mud/laundry room. The house is located about a five-minute drive from downtown New Paltz, and a two-and-a-half hour drive from the city.
