Hudson city in Columbia County is no slouch in the Historic Homes department. The city, located east of the Hudson River, is bursting with beautiful old homes of all stripes, from Italianate Victorians to Dutch Colonials to fancy brick rowhouses. This particular specimen of Greek Revivalism was built in 1825, making it nearly 200 hundred years old. Kudos on not looking a day over 100.
The James T. Haviland House is a bona fide landmark in Hudson, which is part of the reason it’s been a popular vacation rental. The other reason it’s a popular vacation rental? A quick look at the 3000 square foot interior might answer that question. Includes all of the perks of an historic house: Original double front doors, plank floors, windows, hardware, and pocket doors (FYI: Pocket doors are the kind that slide into the wall). Modern conveniences appear in the form of central A/C, humidified heating system, and solar-heated water with electric back-up. The den also offers a splash of modernity thanks to the blue grasscloth cloth wall coverings, as does the kitchen with stainless steel appliances. The icing on the cake is the landscaped backyard with stone patio.
Location is key, and this property sits within two blocks from Hudson’s bustling Warren Street, where you’ll find all the good eating and shopping. The Amtrak station is less than a mile away.
