Welcome to the Hudson House Estate, a c.1905 house in Columbia County that was most recently a wedding venue.
It’s got four bedrooms and more than 2.5 baths (we’ll explain later), according to the listing. The exterior is a cheery green, accented with yellow trim and dramatic black shutters. The top roof peaks have decorative spindles. There’s a covered porch that spans half the width of the house and includes entry to the front door.
Once inside, you’re struck by the original wood flooring and the bountiful sunlight in the living room.
The dining room, too, has its share of sunniness. Pale walls and trim amp up the brightness.
With a wood-planked ceiling and wood floor, the kitchen is dramatic and spare at the same time. White cabinets are topped with butcher-block counters, and a mix of stainless-steel and black appliances lend some contrast. An iron shelving unit serves as a center island.
Upper cabinets sit above some lower ones, while open shelving fills the wall space above some others.
There are a lot of seating options throughout the 1,850-square-foot home, including this conversation nook.
This bedroom has white wainscoting below moss-green walls, with a stocky radiator for winter warmth.
Nearly all of the bedrooms share the same color scheme, including this one…
The fourth bedroom is a departure from that, with light walls that contrast nicely with the wood floors.
This bathroom is just off the fourth bedroom. It’s got hexagonal white penny tile; a white vanity with brasstone pulls; and an elegant oval mirror with equally striking sconces.
The second bathroom has a tub/shower tiled in gray/white subway tile.
Surprise! If we were in Florida, we’d call this a lanai. But here in New York, it’s…um…a glass pool house? The heated, enclosed pool pays no heed to the weather outside, so neither should you. That lil shed to the left holds a half bath. That bigger pool shed houses a cozy sofa, and a separate seating area holds court right next to it.
A marble-backed outdoor shower rinses off the pool water, or preps you for a quick dip.
The glass walls and ceiling are no impediment to Le Roi, so you can enjoy a sunny dip even when the temperatures dip.
The property measures a full acre; it’s closer to Claverack, although it has a Hudson mailing address. Still, it’s only eight minutes to Hudson and a book and brew at Spotty Dog Books & Ale.
