Southern Columbia County Colonial with Striking Dining Room/Kitchen, $250,000

  |  November 7, 2016

This c.1860 post and beam Colonial sits front and center in the Columbia County hamlet of Ancram, visible within a cluster of well-preserved two-story historic buildings at the hamlet’s main intersection, practically next door to the Ancram Opera House. In fact, it’s zoned commercial, but that shouldn’t stop you from considering it for single-family/two-family use.

The exterior is a study in creating curb appeal with very little curb to work with, thanks to the meticulously-renovated facade with double decker balconies. However, it’s the inside that has us all a-flutter. It’s larger than appears at 2200+ square feet, three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, cathedral ceiling in the dining room, and an impressive master loft with skylight. The old-fashioned kitchen looks big enough to feed an army. Terraced and landscaped .15 acre yard included, plus off street parking for three cars.
