I walk past this house every day while walking the dogs, and I adore it. I love the wraparound porch, the clapboard siding, and the stained glass windows. It even has a driveway (a rarity here) and a cute, fenced-in yard. It’s a block away from the bluff that overlooks the Hudson River. Such a special house.
Oh yes, it needs work, sure—plumbing, electric, and heating to start. The interior looks like it was subjected to a really slapdash sheetrock-fest “renovation” once upon a time, but those angled ceilings make me think that there must be fabulous crown moldings hiding underneath. I’ll bet all of the window casings are under the sheetrock, too. A good plumber, a good electrician, a lot of sweat equity (OK, and maybe a really good plasterer!), and this house would be absolutely stunning.
I hope someone comes along and saves this house before it falls into total disrepair. At the moment, the roof is intact and the house still looks sound. The longer it remains vacant, though, the greater the possibility it will just rot and fade.
