Columbia County Greek Revival 299K

HERE I GO, MILKING THE NEW YORK TIMES Real Estate section again…

Last Sunday’s “What You Get for…” column (in this case, $300,000) featured this nicely renovated Greek Revival in northern Columbia County, with Hudson River views.

It’s in the town of Stuyvesant, which, unlike nearby Hudson, is woefully short on cachet.

Hence, you can get a charmer like this 2,000 square foot, 3 BR, 2-1/2 bath house on 1/3 acre for what would amount to a $1,500/month mortgage payment (assuming you’d have to borrow every penny). Add $500/month for taxes.

It definitely bears a look.

To read the Times piece, which includes a slideshow, go here.

For still more info and a PDF brochure about the house (with a price of 349K), go to the website of Gary DiMauro, a real estate agent who specializes in antique houses. Lots to look at there, including historic-with-a-capital-H Dutch Colonial stone houses at prices that, from my Hamptons vantage point, look laughably cheap (I’m crying, rather, that I can’t buy them all).

About cara

I blog (for fun) here at casaCARA, and write (for money) about architecture, interiors, gardens and travel for many national magazines and websites.

    Thanks so much for this one. I’m a sucker for these sturdy, simply shaped houses.

  2. Dutch colonials. I just swoon at the sight of them. I’ll have to look at the website, only I’ll just wind up feeling deprived….
