As we explore the mysterious Victorians on the market in the Hudson Valley and Catskills, we find ourselves in a northern Hudson Valley outpost called Athens. There, finding something like this Greene County second empire Victorian for sale is hardly a rare occurrence. The historic, riverfront village is packed with them. Even amongst all that grandeur, however, this one stands out.
The mansard roof with decorative slate tile and a widow’s walk with cast iron fencing is only the beginning. There also a couple of dozen windows situated around the three stories of this c.1860s historic beauty, as well as 3200+ square feet of interior space. It’s safe to assume that this house is bright, airy, and filled with alcoves and hidden corners. Also includes seven fireplaces, tin ceilings, pocket doors, ornate moldings, wood floors, wraparound porch, and carriage house. Speaking of the wrap-around porch, it comes with views of the Hudson River, right down the street.
Its location is within one of Athens village’s two historic districts, and it’s practically next door neighbors to the picturesque Stewart House situated right on the Hudson River. This is a dreamy spot, and it’s one we’re glad we know about in Greene County.
