It’s hard to pick our favorite room in this Claverack Colonial home sitting on six acres of land just outside of Hudson, NY. 

Could it be the glorious entryway, resplendent with leaded and etched glass surrounding the Dutch transom door, or the dual parlors with original fireplaces, mantels, moldings, and hardwood floors? Do we really have to choose? Because this c.1818 Palladian-style house has got a lot to love about its 3,700-square-foot interior, and, if you’re planning to homeschool this kids this fall (or have to classroom teach remotely), you’ll have you pick of rooms to transform into a home classroom.

Take over one of the parlors for music class or quiet reading time…

…or, if you don’t need an office, make it your educational nerve center.

Meanwhile, incorporate some practical life skills into your lesson plan in the kitchen wing of the house, complete with a massive country kitchen and equally-generous formal dining room that opens onto an attached exterior dining deck.

There are four bedrooms, plus three full baths, each with plenty of space and situated on north, south, and rear portions of the house (the rear section is accessible via its own back staircase).


The six-acre lot comes with a barn and brick smokehouse…

…as well as an in-ground pool with its own little poolhouse. Hey, it can’t be all work and no play, even with homeschooling.

Located just a ten-minute drive from Hudson in Columbia County, NY, the property is convenient to the Taconic State Parkway, the Berkshires/Western Mass., and the villages of Catskill and Athens on the west side of the Hudson River.
