This 1810s Federal house was home to Captain Joseph Allen, his wife, and their nine children. And, now, it can be yours. 

Don’t worry: You don’t need nine children to appreciate the early 1800s details that come with its 3,000-square-foot interior. All you need is a penchant for rocking-chair front porches with ornate wood trim, transom and leaded glass windows, arched entryways, fireplaces, and crown moldings. Need a place to display your impressive array of Federal-era antiquities? This is it.

Sure, the old girl could use some polish and rehab here and there, and the kitchen is large but begging for an update to bring out its full gourmet potential…

…one of which includes this impressive bay window that also makes for an eye-catching exterior feature…

…plus two more rooms on the third floor.

A screened-in porch provides a place for enjoying the outdoors protected from the elements. It overlooks the 1.6-acre lot that comes with an in-ground pool and tennis court. The Jefferson Heights neighborhood is situated just north of Catskill village in Greene County, and this property is close to the Mawignack Preserve on the Catskill Creek, convenient to the Rip Van Winkle Bridge and Hudson, NY.
