A c.1900 Brick Victorian on Saugerties’ Main Street: $625K

  |  February 26, 2024

The town and village of Saugerties conjure descriptions like “quaint,” “charming,” and a little bit “sleepy.” But Saugerties pulses with art, culture, and historic attractions—and being on the banks of the Hudson River doesn’t hurt, either.

Today, Upstater is at a pretty, c.1900 brick Victorian on Saugerties’ Main Street. There’s curb appeal galore here: blue-striped awnings complement the red brick, and cream trim pops on the bow window and roof brackets.

Pardon the virtually staged front porch; past the fake furniture and plants, traditional porch elements can be picked out, like carved columns, gray-painted wood flooring, and a thick stone threshold.

The main entrance opens from the porch into the living room. Whitewashed walls and original hardwood floors are a welcome sight. A cream-toned fireplace sits against a wall opposite a wide landing for the staircase that leads to a hall and the dining room.

Here’s an opposite view of the room.

Built-in china closets flank the doorway from the landing to the dining room. The new owner can update the knotty pine wainscoting and metallic wallpaper if they desire.

Here, the French doors from the living room accordion into a den/office. There’s a lot of wood paneling in here; the bow window can be prettied up with the right decor.

A whitewashed-brick fireplace with built-in bookshelves highlights the den/office.

The eat-in kitchen’s wallpaper and floral tile backsplash all need updates, as do the countertops and some appliances. But it’s a great size, and the new owner could do a lot with the cabinetry.

Beyond the irrelevant virtual staging, the eat-in section of the kitchen is relatively spacious. A half-bath tucks into one corner and a door to the backyard fits into the opposite wall.

The second floor contains four bedrooms. The primary bedroom has a black marble fireplace, and is a generous size.

The full bath has thick, wooden, Shaker-style cabinetry and a beautifully vintage tub. The 3D tour online shows a ’70s-era shower stall next to the tub. Some updates are needed here: If the new owner doesn’t mind painting the cabinets, we could see them in a charcoal tone, with a black-and-white mosaic tile snazzying up the floor. We’d swap out the wall tile for plain white.

This skinny room between the primary bedroom and main bathroom could easily become an ensuite bath.

Lots of windows brighten the third bedroom. In the corner (out of the image frame here), a frosted-glass door opens to a private, raised, wood deck.

This bedroom rivals the primary bedroom’s space, and comes with a decorative fireplace.

The detached garage is delightfully vintage and has lots of space, from its lean-to addition to its single bay and second floor.

The house sits on just under a quarter-acre, on a quieter part of Main Street that’s just down the street from drinks at The Dutch or a show at Upstate Films. The Saugerties Lighthouse, down a half-mile hiking trail that closes during the Hudson’s high tides, is under a five-minute drive from here. And when the weather warms, spend the day at Opus 40, a stunning outdoor stone sculpture park that’s 15 minutes away.
