About This 1870 Italianate For Sale In Rhinebeck New York
Rare Rhinebeck Gem! This circa 1870 architectural treasure in the heart of Rhinebeck Village is one of the few remaining historic Victorians with all its original details intact that hasn’t been re-muddled over time. In the Italianate Villa style, this is one of the first houses built on Chestnut Street, for local attorney George Esselstyn, who served as town supervisor.
Replete with incredible period detailing, this romantic home has elegant parlors, multiple bay windows, decorative double front doors, 4 marble fireplaces, one with an original over-the-mantle gilt mirror, arched entryways & doors, brick-lined walls with 10 foot ceilings, crown moldings and plaster ceiling medallions. Original light fixtures and decorative chandeliers grace the large sunlit rooms. The piece de resistance is an intact soft coal heating stove found in the library.
There’s also an original 2 bay carriage barn with a walk-up 2nd story loft. If that’s not enough, the house sits on a double-sized lot with 100 feet of road frontage & also includes a separately deeded adjoining lot with 50 feet of road frontage. This is a unique opportunity to restore one of Rhinebeck’s quintessential Victorians.
