Spring is on the wing, which means we’re focused on flowers like the kind that come with this Athens Italianate house.

If you’ve been perusing seed catalogs since New Year’s Day, you might be ready for spring. Here at Upstater, we can’t wait to start digging in the dirt and cultivating some beautiful blooms, so this week, we’re featuring residential properties with gardens already included. And, today, that search has brought us to the Greene County village of Athens, NY, where this classy Italianate is surrounded by flower beds.

Things might be a bit overgrown in these listing photos, but with a little manicuring, these gardens could be ship-shape.

Speaking of ship-shape, the circa-1870s, 2,345-square-foot interior looks good as new, with well-preserved details like stained glass, an ornate banister, built-ins, arched pocket doors, and refinished pine floors.

In addition to all of these antique goodies, the house comes with updates, too, like the remodeled kitchen, new HVAC, high efficiency electric heat pump, windows, and roof.

Need a ton of interior space? You’ll have your share here, thanks to twin parlors, and ten-foot ceilings…

…as well as three light-filled bedrooms, a walk-up attic, and three baths.

Fun fact: The potting shed on the property used to be a privy. These days, its much more suited for storing your gardening equipment (thank goodness). All of this lushness and Italianate glory is situated right in the center of historic Athens village, walking-distance to town.
