Former Odd Fellows House Turned Charming Athens NY Townhouse, $275K

This big brick Athens NY townhouse is filled with light. It also contains over 2400 square feet of lofty, open space. Home studio, perhaps? Who wouldn’t be tempted?

Situated in Athens village in northwestern Greene County, the townhouse was originally built in the 1850s and owned by the Odd Fellows order. The building still maintains an old-fashioned sensibility and original features like marble and stone fireplaces, pine floors, moldings, and high ceilings.

Just to clarify: This listing is for the whole building. It’s currently set up as a two-family residence, but the listing states that it could be “easily converted” to a single-family. The exterior trim and scrollwork is gorgeous, but it looks like the back of the building might need some TLC.

The Athens NY townhouse is located one block from the shores of the Hudson River and walking distance to village businesses. The nearest I-87 Thruway exit is less than 10 minutes away, as is Athens’ Greene County neighbor to the south, the village of Catskill.

Curious about the Odd Fellows? The Independent Order of Odd Fellows is a US-based fraternal order founded in the 19th century. Wiki it up, y’all!
