Looking for a river estate but don’t have an estate-sized budget? Here’s one that might suit you: An early 20th century Victorian in Glenmont (we posted about Glenmont this morning), Albany County. Van Wies Point is a fairly swank neighborhood on the Hudson, and this property is certainly a stand-out even among its neighbors. It’s 6000 square feet chock-full of old world and modern charm alike, right up to including the kind of room where one could place one’s baby grand if one were so inclined and, oh look, how about right here next to this intricate hand-painted mural? Yeah, it’s clearly a very special house. The crown moldings along make it worth the price tag, which happens to be less than a million. Just less than a million, but a bargain’s a bargain. And we say “bargain” with tongue firmly in cheek. Still, it’s a beautiful neighborhood just 15 mins. south of Albany, around 2.5 hours north of NYC. Includes a pool and property taxes that drive it squarely into millionair territory.
