If you’ve got cash and renovation know-how, this brick Victorian mansion in Beacon, NY is begging for a serious beautification. 

Granted, this is no beginner’s project, but that’s why experts in restoring historic homes exist (seriously, just Google it; you’ll have your pick of experts). And, just imagine the pay-off in this 3,024-square-foot, c.1900 Victorian situated about three blocks from the center of the Dutchess County, NY city of Beacon.

The gut-work is essential complete, leaving behind a number period details like pocket doors, moldings, time, and windows. Note the sky-high ceilings that would look smashing with some tasteful chandelier-ing…

…plus exposed brick that could be left exposed.

There are four bedrooms here, plus three full baths framed out and ready for finishing, all spread out over three stories…

…with the upper level rooms offering views of Mount Beacon.

What we love about this property is its optical-illusion-like exterior, a literal “facade” of just how big this house really is. From Davis Street, it’s a two-story home with an attractive mansard roof…

…but, around back, the mansion shows its true size.

According to the listing, this is a cash-only or rehab-loan sale, and the porch depicted in the photo is no longer there.

From here, Beacon city’s amenities are a short stroll/bike-ride away, and the Metro-North station and Hudson Riverfront are a five-minute drive.
