Address: 14 W Cobble Hill Rd, Loudonville
Description: Nestled in the quiet hamlet of Loudonville, this 4,000 sq ft Tudor-style home is your gateway to the Capital Region of the Hudson Valley. Albany and all of its breweries, eateries, and shops are just a few minutes away from this estate. A striking exterior, ornate embellishments, and several rooms with their own personalities make this Colonie home unforgettable.
Cobble Hill offers premier bucolic living, a neighborhood with a serene atmosphere, and unbeatable proximity to destinations like Albany, Troy, and Schenectady. The home’s architectural design is immediately apparent in its façade; a half-timbered exterior paired with brick create a lovely appearance. Rustic, dignified, and cozy, the home’s entryway is immensely inviting. The Tudor’s late-medieval roots are apparent in the front of the house, which boasts a unique castle-like bailey.
Few elements of the interior design tempt and tantalize like the gracious two-story foyer. The grand staircase is something special, and a piece of the home visitors will not soon forget. Built in the 1980s, the home’s decorative flourishes combine classic vintage elements with the contemporary. After having the same owners for 40 years, the home remains in pristine condition.
Stay cozy throughout the winter with a wood-burning fireplace in the family room. A stone fireplace, neat mantle, and tons of natural light make rooms like this extremely comfortable for hosting guests and spending time with family alike.
Equipped with doors leading to the home’s 1.5-acre property, the kitchen is another natural gathering place. An island with range hood, cute breakfast bar, and wood patterns that cover the cabinets and fridge add to the character and charm of the space. The home boasts several floor types; ceramic tile, linoleum, and hardwood imbue each room with its own personality.
In addition to the four bedrooms, this Loudonville home has a ton of space for families looking to upsize. Versatile areas of the property can become yoga studios, home offices, and sunroom nurseries. The private study upstairs comes with a balcony, making it ideal for scenic mornings in the upper Hudson Valley.
For those families seeking the luxury of privacy, enjoy 14 W Cobble Hill’s impressive five bathrooms. One of the most stunning examples of tilework in the house can be found in this royal-red washroom, complete with his-and-hers sinks, oval mirrors, stained glass windows, and a spacious, relaxing tub. It’s easy to lose track of time while soaking in here.
Even more possibilities open up downstairs in a full finished basement. Part recreational area, part home-gym, and part hangout spot, the area features comfy carpeting and a second wood-burning fireplace. Hosting potential increases with the ability to house many guests overnight.
Asking price: $720,000
