If you can take over the restoration work, this c.1900s Copake Queen Anne Victorian can be yours for a mere half-million bucks. 

We’re not pretending that a half-million is any kind of bargain, especially for a house that includes unfinished renovations. However, the Astor Guest House (not to be confused with the Astor Gatehouse) is a special case. Built at the turn-of-the-century for American’s first multi-millionaire‘s estranged grandson and his wife, the Queen Anne-style home features a stunner of a front porch, with ornate details and decorative windows.

On the other side of the front door is this impressive staircase…

…as well as a stripped-down sitting room still possessing of its fireplace and hardwood floors. There’s also front room that also includes an original fireplace.

Make the kitchen of your dreams in this welcoming space complete with exposed brick and plenty of natural light…

…and, up the staircase to the second floor are the home’s bedrooms, plus its striking arched windows.

This week on Upstater, we’ve been featuring homes with finished attics. While this one isn’t quite finished yet, the intention to do so is clear. Our favorite part of the attic is the eyebrow dormer window, which takes up a place of prominence in the home’s exterior.

A newer addition was added to the back of the house, and it includes a framed-out kitchen, bedroom, and marble-clad bath. As for the property itself, it’s nearly three-quarters of an acre in size, situated in the rural Columbia County town of Ancram, NY. If you want the seller to finish the renovations, that work will be included in the price of the home. Contact the realtor to discuss these intriguing details.
