Car-Free Country House: Hudson Colonial Revival, $695,000

We lost count how many fire places there are in this gorgeous Queen Anne Colonial on the city of Hudson waterfront. Suffice it to say, there are a lot, and they’re all lovely. Of course, the rest of the house is lovely, too, with a grand staircase, ornate woodwork, enclosed porch, two parlors…we could go on for a while.

Located on about a half-acre just a few steps from the Amtrak station and walking distance to everything Hudson has to offer, including the Basillica Hudson, a very cool industrial art and performance complex that once housed a factory in the 19th century (if you like industrial architecture and factory ruins, the Hudson waterfront is a great place to explore; one of our favorites, in fact).

The taxes are rough at $12,600/year, but it’s such a big place with seven bedrooms, it could be transformed into a B&B, which might help out with the tax fee. Maybe.

Oh, and there are seven fire places.
