Second Empire Victorian

Dating back to 1875, this Second Empire Victorian home features 5,765 square feet of pure drama and elegance.

In a way, this home is the ultimate find for fans of antiquity: It’s the last remaining mansion of a trio of mansions built by the Jonathan Stott family, founders of the hamlet in which this dreamy house is located, situated along the Claverack Creek. Over the years, the seven-bedroom home has been restored and maintained, keeping its impressive array of original details in fine condition.

Arched double doors open onto the checkered foyer and a three-story circular staircase that practically begs you don a flowing gown and diva your way down from the second floor…

…and into the dark and ornate confines of the study, complete with wood floors, fireplace, ceiling medallion, original wood trim, and moldings.

Speaking of fireplaces, you’ll also find one in the formal dining room, living room, and four more working fireplaces in various places around the house.

This much house needs a whole-lotta-kitchen, preferably one equipped with modern stainless steel appliances, tile counter tops, and breakfast nook. Need servants’ quarters? Probably not, but we’re sure you can find another use for them…

In addition to seven bedrooms, there are five full baths, which inevitably leads one to thoughts of turning this into an inn or short term rental…

…and the backyard swimming pool with brick deck, wrap-around porch, English-style gardens, and a fountain would certainly entice visitors and guests.

Located in western Columbia County, east of the Hudson River, about five miles from the city of Hudson, NY.
