Breathe New Life into this Cold Spring Village Historic Property, $900,000

  |  November 17, 2016

Lovers of abandoned properties are going to want to take a look at the inside of this c.1826 Colonial in Cold Spring, Putnam County. This place is a true faded beauty with the details still in tact, even if the wallpaper and paint are peeling off right the walls.

It’s a big rambling farmhouse with four bedrooms, three baths, and nearly 3000 square feet, not to mention high ceilings, large windows, and glass doors to let in the light. A full restoration is needed here, but keep those original moldings, window trim, and doors with the house.

You’re probably scratching your head over the $900,000 listing price, given that the house, good bones though it may have, needs so much work. The location has something to with it. Situated right in the heart of Cold Spring village, the property includes 9.42 acres of land and views of the Hudson River and West Point. Further, the property comes with a conservation easement that requires the house maintain its historic character while allowing for additions like a pool, garage, tennis court, etc. Walking distance to the Cold Spring train station (and it’s not up the hill that is Main Street!).

We’ve got a soft spot for old houses like this. Will someone please come and rescue this one? Let us know if you do.
