The Castleton village firehouse, converted into a private home, is ready for a new owner…could it be you? 

The Seth Wheeler Hose Company was built in 1908, but its brick facade is hidden behind a number of more recent additions. Quite frankly, we like it better in its older form.

Nevertheless, the 2,040-square-foot Italianate residence sports a ton of cool features. First and foremost, we love the arched windows and entryways. Over on the addition, there’s a double-sided brick fireplace dividing a sitting room and dining room…

…plus, a galley-style kitchen.

Our favorite portion of the house is – you guessed it – the original part. How can we resist those period paned windows, wainscoted ceilings, built-ins, and three light-filled bedrooms?

And, while it may not be the most popular of opinions, we fancy the retro yellow fixtures in the bathroom.

Just look at the size of the master bedroom!

Closets come included, too…

Need a second kitchen? Maybe you can fix up this one, which includes some seriously 1970s wallpaper…

…and, there’s even a sun room where you can enjoy the views of this historic Upper Hudson Valley village of Castleton-on-Hudson, situated along the eastern side of the Hudson River in Rensselaer County.
