Kinderhook Home with History

This nineteenth century spacious Kinderhook home (once part of an historic mercantile compound with storefront and adjoining unique trade building) has been completely updated and stylishly renovated.

Now it's a remarkable light-filled 3500 square foot loft-style home with open spaces: living room, dining area, family room, studio, cathedral ceilinged kitchen, plus 1/2 bath with laundry on the first floor. Much admired and photographed, the Feed and Seed building was featured in a recent book "Conversations on the Hudson" by Nick Hand in the April 2014 Conde Nast Traveler and in the New York Times "Escapes Section."

The property includes a two-car garage plus storage on a large deep village lot. Walk to Village Square, Library, Farmer's Market, restaurants and the new Jack Shainman Gallery "School." Only 15 minutes to Hudson and 30 minutes to the Capital District.  $395,000
