Look No Further...For A Touch of Class!
A classic Victorian home with lots of character in the quaint village of Altamont. This home still boasts some of the original touches when it was built over 120 years ago, such as a tin ceiling in the bedroom and hardwood moldings. It boasts an open floor plan, hardwood floors, enclosed porch, new outside patio and so much more! Keep cozy by the wood stove or stroll onto the new patio and deck to enjoy a view of the gardens. Great home for families and entertaining. Only a 15-minute drive to Albany. The exceptional Altamont Elementary School was just awarded the 2007 Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Award. Tranquil living with city convenience.
Although this home has an open floor plan, there are plenty of "nooks and crannies" throughout. Sitting porch and side porches off of the kitchen and second floor living room, downstairs den and mud room. There are first floor and second floor living rooms, 4 bedrooms, bonus room on first floor that can be used as a den or 5th bedroom. There are large front bay windows on the first and second floors that allow you to view quaint Main Street from the comfort of your own home.
Outside, the brick round stepping areas lead to the spacious brick patio that was built less than two years ago. Sit on the patio and face into the deep yard with bountiful gardens, appleblossom, lilac and magnolia trees. In the summer, take a dip in the above-ground swimming pool.
The sidewalks in front of the home lead you right into the heart of the village. Within a few minutes of walking you can have a meal at Hungerford Market or Homefront Cafe; then take a stroll to the park and gazebo. The old train station is currently under renovation for the new library. There is so much to do and see in Altamont. A little bit of "Mayberry" right outside of Albany!
