Nestled amid the natural beauty of the Hudson River Valley and with historic charm galore, not to mention a train station right downtown, Hudson, N.Y., offers intriguing possibilities for the day tripper and historic house hunter alike.
Today it has the reputation of a bustling, artsy town with galleries, antique shops and the historic homes of artists — such as the nearby Thomas Cole National Historic Site and Frederic Church’s Olana. But Hudson’s story is a cycle of boom and bust.
The success years of the 19th century brought a building boom, and much of the amazing domestic architecture survived the later bust years. Federal, Greek Revival, Italianate and Second Empire are all on display (in various states of repair).
We’ve found three intriguing mid-19th century properties currently on the market — all with period charm at price tags of $650,000 or less.
