The exterior of this 14-room Queen Anne Victorian was redone over 40 years ago. Evident details of its rich past are everywhere, including: 10′ high ceilings, elaborate mantels, fanciful woodwork, parquet floors, and tall original windows. The approximately 3000 sf structure consists of three floors of living space and sweeping views of the village and Catskill Mountains. Its nearly quarter acre parcel commands a prime location on William Street. Come see for yourself—its potential can only be truly appreciated in person. Maintain as a 3-apartment rental or restore as an impressive single family home. Walk to Main Street, 12 minutes to Hudson (Amtrak), 2 hours from NYC.

    Beautiful home!

    I’d undo all the updates from 40 years ago. The house just doesn’t look right at all on the outside.

    Oh my goodness, I would want to be a bajillionnaire and restore her to her original beauty.

    I’d definitely want to put the turret back.

    and that church next door must be the old vickerage. Explains the ‘cost effective’ reno.

    I always wonder, with homes like this, what the original kitchen looked like.

      If you image search “1880 kitchens” you will get an idea. Old kitchens were relatively sparse; a wood or coal burning range, storage hutch, work table, sink, water heater.

    How wonderful to have that old picture to work from if the new owners care to restore this beauty!

    Wow. Poor house really got slapped around over the years. I wish I had the money to buy that and restore it back to its original photo. I wish I had a better view of that old photo.

    I would want to open the porch up and get rid of all the siding. A girl can dream, can’t she?
    Oh, Santa I promise I have been good!

    What a Shane they destroyed a beautiful old home to make a rental income property. I too would restore it back to it’s original condition.

    The listing should more correctly state ” The exterior of this home was RUINED 40 years ago… What a pity!

    Breaks my heart to see what was done to the exterior, as well as the painted-over interior millwork. I hope someone restores her to her former glory!

    Take a tour up the street. It keeps going up and up and up. My goodness what a lovely town.

    Love a hilltop location for light and views. Pretty on the inside. Sad on the outside.

  15. William Walkington says: 57 comments

    The truncated tower is just sad. Would take a fortune to undo what was done 40 years ago.

    I lived in the first floor apartment in the late 80’s early 90’s. It was an amazing place.
