Dripping with historic details, this Hudson Greek Revival building would be the perfect addition to your Maximalist lifestyle. 

Minimalism is a nice thought, but we love an old, lived-in manse overflowing with antique details, original hardware, and some Greek-inspired columns thrown in for good measure. Looking to explore your Maximalist side? Be prepared to put in some hard work, because the listing for this residence says, in no uncertain terms, that the restoration project needed here is “not for the faint of heart.”

If that didn’t scare you away, go ahead and check out the details, like the columns-upon-columns right from the get-go, followed by a tall transom front door bedecked with stained and leaded glass windows.

Originally built as a summer residence for some city dwellers, the residence features three stories, with a main floor occupied by two parlors, a sun room, formal dining room, two bathrooms, a kitchen, and a storage room. Period moldings, eleven-foot ceilings, French doors, and floor-to-ceiling windows abound.

We are nuts about the art-nouveau wallpaper…

…as well as the embossed trim and this nifty butler’s pantry.

Even the bathroom has its retro charms.

The upstairs portion includes three bedrooms and another bath…

…as well as a second-floor sunroom.

There’s also the third-story attic, which we’ll have to use our imaginations to envision what it could become.

In addition to the house, the property includes a 2,000-square-foot carriage barn that needs its own restoration. However, once it’s all completed, the live/work potential looms large, especially considering the property is zoned mixed-use and sits right in the middle of popular Hudson, NY. It also qualifies under the Opportunity Zone investment program, according to the listing.
