We are back in the historic area of Coxsackie today with this aging beauty on the aptly named Mansion Street.
The five-bedroom, two-bath home dates back to 1848. It’s been well maintained while keeping some cool details…
…like the pocket doors leading from the foyer into the living room, and the sculptural newel post.
The living room has bicolor hardwood flooring and floor-to-ceiling curved bay windows, with built-in shelving above the old-fashioned radiator.
Across the foyer is this parlor, with equally high ceilings and a black fireplace.
This sunroom, currently being used as a breakfast room, has fuchsia carpeting, tons of windows, and a huge pass-through to the kitchen.
Speaking of the kitchen, it could use an update, from the mismatched flooring to the cornucopia of appliances. But it’s a big space, where your imagination could have lots of room to flex its muscles.
The dining room has a beautifully patterned wood floor, cafe-height shutters like those in the parlor and living room, and a simple-but-classy chandelier.
Head up the staircase to find knotty pine floors and a roomy hallway with enough wall space to satisfy a gallerist.
The bedrooms are all big and bright. The pendant over the bed in this room is seriously funky-cool. And hey, there’s a closet—not too common in a house of this age.
The white walls are a great neutral, and contrast well with the warm pine floors.
Overall, the house measures almost 3,000 square feet.
Between the hollow-core lauan door, basic fixtures, and seafoam paint, this bathroom might need an update…
…but this one is a show-stopper, from the piney floors to the gargantuan tub to the soaring ceiling.
As expected, the house has been expanded over the years. But each addition has snuggled nicely into the overall ethos of the home.
A detached garage has room for storage, too. Like Ely Street, Mansion Street is close to Coxsackie’s downtown historic district and within a stone’s throw of the Hudson River. Its fabulous price point makes it an easy choice for older-home lovers.
