Fans of finery: You might find this Kinderhook Federal house to be a phenomenal example of classic 1830s design.
We’re continuing our week in the Columbia County town of Kinderhook this week with another historic home. This time, we’re jumping forward in time to the 1830s for this well-preserved Federalist home with all the bells and whistles, like a stately and satisfyingly-symmetrical facade, Greek-Revival-inspired front columns…
…and a center hall layout within the 3,769-square-foot interior with polished plank floors throughout, as well as original trim, moldings, and wood details.
The sitting room on one side of the hallway includes bay windows, working marble fireplace, ornate trim, ceiling medallions, period-style chandeliers, and built-in bookshelves.
The formal dining room is opposite the front parlor, with yet another working marble fireplace, trim, et al…
…connected to a gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances, copious cabinetry, and acres of counter space. The kitchen opens onto a second, more casual dining room/study area, but it still includes its own working fireplace.
Rounding out the first floor is a library/media room, a full bath, and various nooks and crannies.
There are also five bedrooms, two of which come with working fireplaces…
…and a primary suite that comes with this luxurious full bath with a private balcony. Add that feature to the growing list of “Things We Need in Our House That We Never Knew We Needed ‘Til Now.” The house comes with many other modern comforts, like updated HVAC and electric.
The lush property is 1.84 acres in size, but don’t worry about having to water all of that lusciousness by hand; the grounds come with an automated watering system. They also come with a three-car garage/carriage house.
This dreamhouse is located in the middle of Kinderhook village, walking-distance from local businesses and eateries, and right across the street from Jack Shainman Gallery: The School.
