As we begin our week in Not Quite the Capital District, we understand that the thought of heading that far north might be a little intimidating for some potential homebuyers. So, we decided to ease you into things a bit with this Colonial in northern Columbia County, about 40 minutes southeast of Albany and 40 minutes northeast of Hudson city. It’s also about 2.5 hours from NYC. Not so bad, right?
The antique home does not disappoint. In spite of its 1880s pedigree, the 2000+ square interior is awash in modern touches, including updated kitchen with stainless steel everything, dining room with built-in bookcases, living room with fireplace + large windows + double French doors leading to a bluestone patio, refinished wood floors, polished steel banister/handrail in staircase, and tile floors. The home’s three bedrooms on the second floor, as well as updated master bath. Lot size is 1 acre and comes with mature plantings, a fenced organic garden, stream,and garden shed.
Located in the town of Canaan, which is most definitely rural territory, but it’s still convenient to Interstate 90, Massachusetts, and the Taconic State Parkway.
