Overlooking the Hudson River in the heart of Athens, reaching to water's edge with 350' of rare riparian rights included, and surrounded by park-like grounds with beautifully designed gardens, this 1823 Greek Revival Manor successfully blends timeless architecture with today's sought-after style of living. Only a short walk to the ferry crossing the river to the town of Hudson, just steps to town shopping and restaurants, and coupled with Athens' vibrant resurgence, it's the perfect setting. 12' ceilings, irreplaceable moldings, ornately trimmed openings, 7 original working fireplaces, and lustrous hardwood floors combine with modern amenities; and with the flair of a historical provenance, it's a perfect setting for unlimited creative possibilities. With front and back sitting porches, a double living room with an ornately columned divide and two fireplaces, a sun-filled dining room with corner niche, a delightful kitchen with glass front cabinetry, entertaining is effortless. The second floor features four bedrooms (two with fireplaces), two full baths, and an office/sitting room with river views. The lower garden level with its own brick terrace entry could easily accommodate separate living quarters. Outside, set just past the raised-bed vegetable garden, a three-bay garage with its own separate driveway (and plenty of work and storage), has a spacious gabled second floor office, perfect as an artist's studio or additional living space.
