Need a mood boost? This sunny-yellow Greek Revival home with a classy interior might put a smile on your face. 

Meticulously-preserved since its construction in the 1700s, this 4,000-square-foot mini-mansion stands out even by the town of Rensselaerville, NY standards. A socially-distant Google Streetview tour reveals that the Albany County town is packed with well-maintained, older homes. Still, there’s just something kinda special about this one, and special homes are what we’ve been all about this week on Upstater (like this Woodstock converted church, or this Catskills schoolhouse). The lemon-meringue exterior is part of its many charms…

…then again, so is the front entryway, with transom door and leaded glass window.

Take your pick of the yellow parlor…

…or the crisp-white one, both of which come with its own fireplace, hardwood floors, and period moldings.

Off the yellow parlor is the formal dining room with plenty of space for all those state dinners you plan to hold once it’s safe to do so.

Meanwhile, use the chef’s kitchen to make things like endless loaves of sourdough bread and kimchi…

…which you can consume with gusto in the breakfast nook (we’re using the term “nook” pretty loosely here; look at the size of it?).

Up on the second floor are four large bedrooms, some of which come with fireplaces, and, according to the listing, the house even includes a working elevator.

Finally, out in the one-acre lot are three outbuildings: A guest cottage, studio, and billiards room.

Rensselaerville is situated in southwest Albany County, just a few miles north of the Greene County line.
