Even the patina of time can’t dim this Castletown townhouse’s inner shine. Will you be the one to bring it back to life? 

Be careful: You might just fall head-over-heals with the potential that’s packed inside its 2,640-square-foot, three-story interior. If you just can’t shake its pull on you, gather up your dollar bills because this week’s Five-Figure Friday pick is cash-only. Situated in the southern Rensselaer County village of Castleton-on-Hudson, the circa-1860s brick Italianate features a slew of originals, starting with the double-transom doors, which open onto the interior’s foyer and staircase.

The center-hall layout includes French doors, hardwood floors, high ceilings with medallions, and trim. You can still see its charms despite the layer of grunge…

…and the fact that the kitchen needs a complete overhaul.

This gorgeous stained glass window has stood the test of time…

…even though the three bedrooms need some help.

Good news is, at least one of the two fulls baths is in working condition, which makes the mid-renovation living situation a lot easier.

The townhouse sits on a quarter-acre property right in the middle of Castleton village, just steps from the Hudson River on the east side. It’s also convenient to the Capital Region, northern Columbia County, western Massachusetts, and northern Greene County and the Catskill Mountains.
