Happy Holidays from Upstater! Here’s a Germantown Gingerbread House…

In celebration of the season, let’s take a tour of this Germantown Gothic Victorian…

It’s Gingerbread House time! And, nothing makes us think of sugary, sparkly architectural confections like a Carpenter Gothic…

340 Northern Boulevard, Germantown: $1.4M

Stately, but with a fringe of whimsy, this Columbia County example of the classic style includes pointed arches, gables, decorative buttressing, and scroll-saw wood moldings to recreate the look of a High Gothic. That’s what make the Carpenter Gothic such an interesting style: It borrows details from grand, ornamental cathedrals of Middle Ages Europe and puts them on the 19th-century American farmhouse.

The Perry Homestead, as this property is called, dates back to 1835 and sits on 3.3 acres decorated with professional landscaping…

…and, on the inside, a breezy 3,100 square feet. Here’s the great room with marble flooring and vaulted ceiling with skylight…

…and, the adjacent kitchen with three sinks total, oodles of granite counter space, copper range hood, and subway tile backsplash, plus a large dining room with custom wood work. The kitchen divides the great room from the living room…

…which features hardwood floors, original moldings and fireplace.

Take the staircase to the second floor, where there are three bedrooms, plus two fully-updated baths.

Host your summertime dinner parties on the large pergola or the bluestone terraces accessible through the home’s great room, and take in the serenity of the surroundings from the lap pool with lily pond.

This property also comes with a two-story carriage house with comfortable-looking guest suite with vaulted cathedral ceilings.

Situated in southern Columbia County, east of the Hudson River, about 10 minutes south of Hudson, NY. The cute hamlet of Germantown is south of Perry Homestead, and there, you can grab a bite, go antiquing, get groceries from the market, or mail a package at the post office.
