Classy, Quirky, and Full of Surprises in Albany, $838K

We can picture Bess Houdini holding a seance in the parlor of this spectacular Albany Victorian…

…and, that’s definitely a good thing as far as we’re concerned. Furthermore, this 5,200-square-foot abode boasts more nooks and crannies than we can count, which is also a check in the “pros” column. Original woodwork, blue bullet glass window panes, pocket doors, custom cabinetry, parlors, fireplaces, in-laid wood floors…the “pros” list is getting longer by the minute.

Built by the town of Colonie’s founder in 1880, this home includes five bedrooms, a wrap-around porch, over-sized eat-in kitchen with seating area, plus a formal dining room. Long story short, this home was built to suit a crowd because you could get positively lost in it…

Several of the bedrooms include a fireplace, and the master suites come with private balconies…

And, there are lots of modern comforts that come with this vintage house, including central air-conditioning, stainless steel kitchen appliances, and commercial wiring and hook-ups with separate electric panels for a full-house generator. You know, just in case the spirits (or a snow storm, Bess Houdini, calm down) knock out the power.

Enjoy the 1.1-acre lot from the stone patio, puttering in the gardens, or languishing in the hammock. Located just north of downtown Albany, close to well-regarded public schools and convenient to I-787, I-87, and I-90.

Can’t believe this house is listed for less than $1 million? Neither could we! All week long, however, we’ve found lots of properties listed for under a million that offer just as much class, style, and comfort as those seven-figure homes. See more here, here, here, and here.
