There’s no other like it, that’s for sure: A six-bedroom, brick Queen Anne Victorian  from the 1870s, sitting on the shores of the Hudson River.

Built by a 19th-century railroad magnate and recently-operated as a B&B, the Stockbridge Ramsdell House offers over 4,700 square feet of interior space, drenched in historic Victorian details like ornate wood trim, hardwood floors, pocket doors, and stained glass windows.

While all that historical detail is great, we’re looking for something more modern in the kitchen, which comes with a commercial range from its days as an inn.

Both the kitchen and formal dining room come with fireplaces, and there are five more fireplaces throughout the interior…

…or, by simply stepping outside.

According to the blue historical marker outside the property, this is one of the first five brick houses built on the east side of Montgomery Street, saved from demolition in 1924 by Elizabeth Lyon. If you’ve been searching for a piece of Hudson Valley history, this is it.
