With some tweaks, this Troy Victorian could be even more of a shining jewel than it already is…
Move right in. No, it’s okay. This is not a rambling old fixer-upper Victorian that needs major rehab, although you might think so, based on the price. So, bring in your stuff, or get all new stuff, it doesn’t matter, because you can move right in.
Furthermore, the five-bedroom, 2,824-square foot house includes a dizzying array of c.1870s details like moldings, ceiling medallions, wood floors, arched doorways, floor-to-ceiling windows, fireplaces, high ceilings…the list goes on.
There are some remodels and updates here, including the main bath (there’s one bath and two half-baths, total), furnace, hot water, and the slate roof serviced last year. While the kitchen looks perfectly functional, we would consider an update in crisp-white or robin’s egg blue with stainless steel appliances and new cabinetry. We know; all very expensive. Fantasizing about it, however, remains free of charge.
All five bedrooms are located up the original center staircase of the home to the second floor. They’ve been carpeted, so a vigorous de-rugging/floor refinishing is in order, as well as a fresh coat of paint. No dark, tiny bedrooms crammed into this house, however. Check out the large windows and high ceilings…
In case you missed the announcement yesterday, Upstater will be spending the week in Albany and Troy, and this is just the type of house we’d be hoping to find. Located in the east-of-Hudson city of Troy, two miles west of the city’s waterfront area. There, you’ll find shops, restaurants, and the Troy Farmers Market during the warm season. Russell Sage College and RPI are also in Troy.
