For the past 126 years, this Ancram Victorian has been so well-maintained that it includes all of its original details, lovingly-restored. 

The historic hamlet of Ancram, NY in eastern Columbia County, NY is home to a cluster of gracious antique houses and buildings, like Simon’s General Store in the middle of town, or the Ancram Opera House (built in 1927 and used as the local grange hall) just up the road. This 2,184-square-foot Victorian is a stand-out even among these notable structures, thanks to a proliferation of c.1894 features in pristine condition.

The listing purports that all of the trim, moldings, doors, parquet floors, and woodwork have been carefully-renovated over the years. Looking for something timeless? Lots of natural light, high ceilings, and understated fixtures never go out of style.

Spread out on the first floor in the great room, cook in the huge kitchen, and serve it up in the formal dining room. The first floor also includes a laundry room/bathroom combo.

All four bedrooms plus a full bath are on the second floor…


The half-acre property also comes with out-buildings, one of which is an outhouse. Thankfully, indoor plumbing exists, making the need for such a structure unnecessary. The old barn could be repurposed into a guest house or studio.

Ancram is convenient to the rest of the Hudson River’s east side (Hudson city is about a 20-minutes’ drive from here), as well as Connecticut and Massachusetts. Need to visit northern Dutchess County or Ulster County on a regular basis? Rhinebeck village is a 30-minute drive, and Kingston is 45 minutes away. Here, you’ll never have to choose between the Catskills and the Berkshires ever again.
