Let’s Time-Travel to 19th-Century Athens, NY for this Second Empire Victorian, $395K

You can do your part to preserve a Hudson River village by scooping up a detail-packed Athens Victorian. 

Even if you don’t have household staff to attend to your every whim, you can still appreciate the original c.1860s switchboard that comes included with this antique home. In fact, the 3,256-square-foot interior boasts a number of original features, like ornate light fixtures, wood trim, pocket doors, and etched glass, just to name a few.

The house also includes seven fireplaces, tin ceilings, and the the kinds of tantalizing nooks, crannies, and hiding places that come with these grand old Victorians…

While everything looks to be in fairly decent condition, some painting and restoration/repair work seems necessary for the pressed tin ceilings. Includes three bedrooms – wood floors throughout – and two full baths with claw-foot tubs.

A large kitchen with built-ins gives you plenty of space for meal prep…

…and the home’s exterior wrap-around porch is just right for doing a little village people-watching while the Hudson River flows by. Athens, NY is situated in Greene County, ten minutes north of Catskill village, along the shores of the river.

If you’re in the mood for more water views, set sail with Upstater this week for more splashy real estate listings in the Hudson Valley and Catskills, like this New Windsor three-bedroom house, or these two Garrison properties right on the water.
