A Coxsackie Victorian Mansion on Mansion Street, $449,000

  |  August 2, 2017

Take a look at this Greene County Victorian and allow yourself to harken back to a time when stately homes lined the Coxsackie village streets, bedecked with manicured lawns and gracious front porches perfect for sipping a julep and watching the neighborhood pass by on a summer’s afternoon.

Well, harken no more, because that’s exactly what’s happening in Coxsackie right now, in 2017, and not just in 1811 when this Victorian was built. Stunning vintage homes still exist in Coxsackie, which is situated on the west side of the Hudson River just north of Catskill. And, with those vintage homes come manicured lawns, at least in the case of this Victorian.

Located on Mansion Street, this home is more of a mini-mansion with six bedrooms and 3000 square feet. It’s practically a Tiny House compared to actual mansion, but it’s plenty enough space for a big family. The interior sensibility definitely sticks close to period in which it was built with hardwood floors, floral wallpaper, crown moldings, window seats, twin parlors, built-in cabinetry/shelves, fireplaces, and large kitchen and adjacent dining room.

The third floor has been transformed into an additional family room/master bedroom/guest room with lots of natural light.

Meanwhile, on the outside, the .77 acre property features a fenced-in yard with bluestone patio and in-ground pool, plus a two-car carriage house. Located walking distance to the village and the riverfront park.
