Take a Private Tour of this Chic Troy, NY Farmhouse…

  |  January 7, 2019

This Troy Colonial farmhouse proves that you don’t have to go broke funding your dream of living in a fixed-up vintage home.

We’ve been awaiting this week here at Upstater for quite some time. For you see, this week, we’re featuring real estate listings in the Albany/Troy/Capital District, and we couldn’t possibly more excited about it. After all, we love a property that offers a lot of bang-for-your-buck, and the Capital District (which includes Albany, Rensselaer, and Schoharie Counties), and anything north of Greene and Columbia Counties provides a decent stock of housing, no matter your budget (we’re looking at you, five-figure-property-seekers). And, both Albany and Troy have most of what we require in populated area: Decent take-out, a good music store, a diverse population, lots of public outdoor spaces, and beautiful historic architecture.

So, let’s jump right into the deep end of the listings with this fab farmhouse, situated on 1.31 acres just a few miles east of Troy, NY, listed for $349K. Originally built in 1805, this three-bedroom home offers a country-chic renovation with 2,600 square feet, new electric, and high-efficiency furnace. Plus, it’s well-insulated, with city water and septic, and natural gas heat.

The kitchen recently received a full remodel with shiplap walls, soapstone counters, stainless steel appliances, and custom tile backsplash. According to the listing, Funcycled in Troy provided the kitchen renovation.

The corrugated metal walls add a splash of offbeat, modern flare…

…and the custom fixtures recall its country-fied roots while adding whimsy.

The living room, family room, kitchen, mudroom, office, and half bathroom/laundry room are on the first floor, and, on the second floor, three bedrooms and two full baths.

And, last but not least, the landscaped property features a patio with built-in grill and pergola…

…as well as perennial flower beds, fruit trees, and a creek. Also includes a tiny house and shed.

Curious about what else the Albany/Troy/Capital Region listings have to offer? Then stick around all week long to see more on Upstater.
