Take a Stroll to Warren Street from this Hudson City Craftsman Foursquare, $335,000

  |  March 28, 2017

It hasn’t been easy to find affordable homes in the Columbia County city of Hudson for quite some time. At least, not right on Warren Street, Hudson’s main commercial drag that includes a-whole-lotta home design stores, art galleries/studios, cafes, and restaurants, not to mention antique shops, book stores, and yoga studios.

However, if you’re willing to look elsewhere in Hudson, you better your chances of finding a more affordable home than one of those brick Victorian beauties on Warren Street (don’t get us wrong; we adore those meticulously-maintained/renovated Hudson properties, but the listing prices are high, often beyond a half-million). Case in point: This three-bedroom Foursquare located on Prospect Street, just a five minute stroll east of Warren Street and all that it has to offer, priced at a semi-reasonable $335,000 with a yearly tax bill of around $4200. Not too shabby for the Hudson Valley!

The 2000+ square foot home looks good to us, with oak hardwood flooring, Craftsman wood details like window frames and doorways, stained glass, bay windows, formal dining room, and updated kitchen with farmhouse basin sink, stainless steel appliance, and a pressed tin ceiling that shine. Second floor master bedroom has sliding glass doors that open to a space that has potential as a roof deck. The fenced-in back yard looks family and pet-friendly. In fact, the whole big house seems like the perfect place to spread out with the kids or the furry companions, situated one mile from the Amtrak Station on the Hudson River waterfront.

TL;DR: It is possible to find an affordable home in the Hudson area, like this Craftsman depicted below. And this one, this one, and this one, too.
