Historic Victorian Alert: Kingston’s Hutton House, $339,000

Upstater Magazine   |  By

Built in 1895, the Hutton House in midtown Kingston came during the end of an architectural age. The ornate Victorian style was giving way to the more simplified Colonial Revival by the end of the 19th century, so while Hutton House still has Victorian flare, it lacks the gaudiness of its predecessors. Inside, the juxtaposition continues with splashes of fancy here and there (decorative arched windows, banister finials, dramatic bay windows, parquet floors with wood inlay), but with Craftsman-like woodworking. Fireplaces abound, and forced to choose, we;d say our favorite is the one with the green tile backsplash. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and includes a walk-up attic, updated kitchen, high ceilings, and a quarter acre of land in a quiet residential street near Kingston amenities. Kudos to the current owners for the home’s immaculate condition.
