Are you looking at your new B&B or intimate restaurant? Well, you’re already ahead of the game since this property is zoned mixed-use. And, Hillsdale is definitely booming, if you consider reasonably-paced growth in spite of rising popularity in a quiet Columbia County farming town “booming.” Read more about Hillsdale hamlet here, and there’s even more to come in the spring 2016 edition of Upstater Magazine. Suffice it to say, we are officially as enchanted by Hillsdale itself as we are with this house.

Located in the hamlet’s historic district, this c.1780 two-story is classified as a Federal by the local historical district survey (you’re welcome for that little rabbit-hole, historic architecture nerds!) and is part of a package of truly cool old homes all around Hillsdale. This one does need some work, but the character of the period is alive and well inside and out, with all the marks of the time: Plank floors, rough-hewn support beams, big fireplace + wood stoves, formal parlor, and unique curvaceous bedrooms on the upper floor. Includes a quarter-acre semi-private backyard, too. Could be a worthy investment…
