A Gilded Age Gem in Kingston, $164,500

  |  December 24, 2015

One of the things we love here at Upstater is the unique embellishments that come with buying an old home.  Like when molding and floor boards weren’t ordered out of a catalog, but were each individually hand crafted with old fashioned flare.  This 1898 jewel in Kingston has all the visual splendor of an old home but has been updated to make it conducive to modern living. These modern installments include the comforts of a high efficiency gas furnace, new insulation and skylights in the attic, and central air.  It might look like an old Victorian, but it certainly won’t feel like one.


Inside, each room is perfectly adorned with antique doorway molding fit for a king and woodwork that they just don’t make like they used to.  With almost 1,500 sq. ft, this Victorian home has oversized rooms with high-ceilings and large windows, bathing the rooms in natural light and highlighting the beauty of the elegant details.

We love the character and convenience that the built-in cabinets offer and the flare of the glass paneled doors.  Stained glass windows lead you up the stairwell into rooms that are not so ordinary.  This 3 bed 1.5 bath house thinks outside of the box, with rooms that aren’t rectangularly framed, but custom shaped.  Sometimes, Victorian is the way to go.
