North Albany Craftsman Colonial with Appealing Woodwork, $389,900

  |  January 9, 2019

Antiquity fans will be drooling over this Albany Craftsman’s details.

Built in 1915, the six-bedroom country home comes with 3,600 square feet of original wood detailing, like wall wainscoting, sliding pocket doors, etched glass windows, built-ins, and moldings. In fact, according to the listing, this house was designed by Walter Van Guysling, the early 1900s architect behind Albany’s Public School 15, Hudson River Dayline ticket offices, and other buildings in the Capital District. Historic house achievement unlocked!

Check out the wainscoting in the living room…

…and those classy glass doors…

…not to mention floor-to-ceiling double windows in the parlor…

…and the wood trim around the staircase, and the exposed beams and brick fireplace in the family room…

It does appear that most of the hardwood floors look good but need refinishing in some spots. The kitchen, which could use some updating, includes a breakfast nook and pantry.

An enclosed porch rounds out the first floor,

The bedroom and another full bath are on the second floor, plus an additional large bedroom with cathedral ceilings and recessed dormer windows.

And perhaps the sweetest details of all? Hearts, carved into shutters, in the interior and exterior of the house. How can you not be charmed by that?

There’s an acre’s-worth of land here, too, with a stacked stone wall, rolling front lawn, and a stream that borders the north end of the property.

Intrigued by what else the Capital District has to offer vis-a-vis residential listings? See more from Upstater here, here, and here, and stick with us for more this week!
