Historic Honey South of Hudson, NY, $595K

Can’t resist the allure of an older home? This historic stone Colonial is one of the oldest in Columbia County, NY, still in impeccable condition. 

Built sometime between 1695 and 1710, this three-bedroom home is a case study in Dutch Colonial architecture, kept in pristine condition with exposed interior stone walls, wide board oak and pine flooring, a beehive chimney, cathedral ceilings, chestnut support beams, and two wood-burning fireplaces…

…one of which is a handsome floor-to-ceiling fireplace with attached built-ins.

The kitchen could use a good update (we prefer gas ranges over electric, and some of the cabinetry looks a bit beat-up), but there’s plenty on offer that’s already been updated or improved, like a new air conditioning system, full-house generator, new furnace, and a fire/security system.

The 2,450-square-foot interior includes three bedrooms, our favorite of which is the master bedroom with vaulted ceilings and wood floors…

…not to mention ample closet and storage space…

…more of which you’ll find in the detached garage, complete with a second-floor artist’s loft.

The 4.1-acre property rounds out our week exploring Homes with Gardens in the Hudson Valley and Catskills, with perennials, old-growth trees, and fern flourishes surrounding the bluestone patio.

Conveniently-located just a few miles south of Hudson, NY, the property is close to the Rip Van Winkle Bridge to the west side of the Hudson River and Catskill village. Note: The listing mentions that there are income-producing billboards on the property. We found all five of them on Google Streetview, situated to the south of the house, next to the garage.
