Head toward the Capital Region where you’ll find this Rensselaerville Greek Revival situated in an historic hamlet.
Rensselaerville, NY is a bit of a hidden gem. Located about a half-hour drive from Albany, the country hamlet with a population just north of 1,800 residents offers a quiet and charming main street with historic buildings and mom-and-pop businesses. On the west side of town is a local brewery, as well as the Rensselaerville Falls Trail, which crisscrosses its way around a nature preserve and over the streams that run off of Myosotis Lake. And, north of town is the Carey Institute for Global Good, a humanitarian organization. If all this doesn’t make Rensselaerville sound like a slice of small-town heaven, we don’t know what does.
And, in this gem of a town is a gem of a home. More specifically, this c.1850s Greek Revival home with four bedrooms, 1,550 square feet, and a fresh and comfortable interior filled with natural light.
The first floor offers plank floors throughout, with high ceilings, French double doors, and a formal dining room…
…and a crisp-white, updated kitchen with south-facing views from the wall of windows.
In addition to a guest room and bath on the lower level, there are three upstairs bedrooms, one of which is a huge master bedroom.
Head out the rear of the house through the garden door and into the enchanting terraced backyard with stone retaining walls.
Convenient to both I-88, I-90, and I-87 and about 2.5 hours’ drive from NYC.
