ATHENS THREE-STORY BRICK TOWNHOUSE… $450,000
Wonderful 19th century building in historic village of Athens is just steps to the Hudson River. The beautiful front door entrance opens to the center hall with handsome wide board floors throughout… First floor dining room and living room have wood burning fireplaces, there is a decorative mantel in the front parlor and a spacious kitchen with French doors opening to the garden. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms and a full bath with laundry; the entire front width is one great room- a bedroom and workspace that had been the Odd Fellows meeting hall from 1927 until 1985. (Odd Fellows plaque is still at the front entrance). On the third floor, there is a large light filled sky-lit room, facing the Hudson River, with beautiful exposed brick walls along the width of the building, an ideal studio or work space. Also on the third floor, originally finished, but unused for years, are two bedrooms along with other spaces that could be completed for bathroom, work or storage. Much of the hard work has been done (new roof and skylights, new boiler and oil tank, repointing back wall); the townhouse is now is ready for final renovation and creative finishes. Walk to Crossroads Brewery, the Rooster for breakfast or lunch or enjoy dinner by the River at the Stewart House. Easy access to Catskills hiking and skiing.
