It’s hard to believe this stunning home is asking under $1 million, but it’s even more surprising that it’s available for the first time in over a century. Located in the Dutchess County hamlet of New Hamburg, the Victorian home was built in 1860 and underwent a full restoration in 2003. In addition to its great location, wrap-around porch, and tons of preserved historic details, the property comes with a separate guest cottage that’s just as lovely.

New Hamburg is about an hour-and-a-half drive or a two-hour train ride on the nearby Hudson Line from New York City. The town is located on a peninsula between the Hudson River and Wappinger Creek; this home is right in the heart of everything, near the marina, yacht club, and historic downtown.

As mentioned, this house has been owned by the same family for more than 100 years and is available for the first time.

The recent renovation preserved all of the home’s architectural history, including turn-of-the-century woodwork, three Carrera marble fireplaces, original wood floors, and beautiful moldings and ceiling medallions.

In the dining room, gorgeous built-ins, including a wet bar, steal the show.

The home has several sitting rooms and many lovely bay windows.

The eat-in kitchen has been modernized but retains the feel of the home.

The main house is 3,390 square feet and has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a full attic, and a full basement. During the renovation, it received central air-conditioning, new plumbing and electrical, a new roof, new siding, and new Kolbe-Kolbe windows.

In 1920, a charming cottage was added to the 1.5-acre property. It’s 600 square feet and has one bedroom and one bathroom.

As the listing says, “20 Main Street lends itself perfectly to full-time residence, a weekend getaway, or a Beautiful Hudson Valley bed-and-breakfast.”
