This classic Second Empire Victorian in rural Stuyvesant, NY is made of sturdy stuff, but it’s still a sight for sore eyes. 

Here at Upstater, we can’t get enough of exposed brick. That’s why we’ve been spending the week on our favorite brick-built residences from the local listings. Today’s journey brings us to the rural town of Stuyvesant, situated in western Columbia County, NY, less than a mile from the Hudson River’s eastern shore. Originally built in 1862, this 3,448-square-foot comes with plenty of updates, like the modernized kitchen in the home’s newer addition…

…while maintaining some 19th-century charms like the rocking-chair front porch and interior plank floors. The living also comes with a very contemporary gas-powered fireplace. Who doesn’t love a fire that can be turned on and off with a single throw of a switch?

On the second level are three bedrooms, plus a full bath…

The garage out on the property is set up as a gathering place during outdoor shindigs…

…and the basketball court and pool contribute to a summer-camp-like setting. There’s even four acres of woods and forest in which it play and explore. The town of Stuyvesant is a twenty-minute drive north of Hudson, NY.
