26 South Franklin Street Athens, NY 12015

My reaction to this house...

26 South Franklin St Athens, NY 12015
Beds:4 Bed Baths:2 Bath House Size:3,254 Sq Ft Lot Size:0.75 Acres

Wonderfully preserved in time, this 1873 Second Empire home is especially grand in her elaborate detailing, with patterned slate Mansard roof with center pavilion, hooded dormers and iron cresting. On the Greene County Historical Register, it has very spacious rooms with high tray ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, a central stair hall that climbs all three floors, gorgeous inlay parquet floors, and marble mantles in the double parlors and dining room. The large front porch with paired glass entry doors has been welcoming visitors for almost 140 years. The owner has invested 30 years restoring to its original opulence, and now it’s your turn to polish to her full potential. Prominently positioned on .75 acres plus a carriage house. South Franklin Street begins at the Hudson River and is the premier location for the most architecturally impressive homes in Athens, but you will not find a grander home in the entire village. Just 15 minutes from Hudson, Amtrak and two hours from NYC. EXCLUSIVE
15 mins from Hudson, 2 hrs from NYC
