Originally a two family home, the John T. Haviland House was built in 1825, converted to a single family residence in the 1990's, and designated an individual landmark in 2004. The house still retains many of its original details including both of the original front doors, wide plank floors, pocket doors, windows and hardware.
Enter through either of the front doors into the foyer, with a powder room and stairs to the second level. Off the foyer is the parlor, with a grand piano, a wood burning fireplace, and an inviting leather chesterfield sofa. Don't miss the antique maps of Hudson on the walls, and feel free to play some records on the turntable!
From the parlor, you can enter the chef's kitchen, with its beautiful soapstone countertops with integrated sink, professional DCS range, and dishwasher. The kitchen is open to the dining room with its antique farm table and amazing bay looking out to the yard.
The dining room is also open to the den, but can be closed off by using the antique pocket doors. The den has beautiful mid-century furniture, and a large screen plasma TV connected to an Apple TV with Netflix, HBO GO, and other streaming services.
Upstairs are three bedrooms. The master runs the full depth of the house, has six windows, a fireplace, an en-suite bathroom, and is larger than most Manhattan studios! There are two other large and well decorated bedrooms on this floor, as well as another bathroom.
Back downstairs and off the parlor is a beautiful screened in porch with cathedral ceilings and yet another wood burning fireplace for those chilly nights. The porch opens up onto the impeccably landscaped back patio with landscape lighting, a gas grill, and dining table.
The house is equipped with central air conditioning, as well as a Sonos music system that connects to Spotify, Pandora and SiriusXM. There are Sonos zones in the parlor, kitchen, den and master bedroom.
The house is located in the heart of historic Hudson, NY. It's only one block from Warren Street, and it's on one of the city's nicest blocks. A short stroll up or down Warren St. will take you to some of upstate NY's best antique stores, restaurants, shops and bars. Head to Helsinki or the Half Moon for some amazing live music. Or stroll down to the riverfront to take in the views of the river and the majestic Catskill mountains beyond.
Tastefully-appointed 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, with landscaped patio, chef's kitchen and to-die-for bathrooms, just off Warren Street. Another fine Upstate rental available through Red Cottage Inc.
Our small family spent Christmas 2015 at the Haviland House and had a wonderful time! Thank you for great memories! This old house is beautifully renovated, comfortable and well equipped for cooking and leisure. We enjoyed playing old records and the piano. The fireplaces give great ambiance to the master bedroom and living room. The town is within walking distance with many shops and restaurants. This is definitely a place to consider in the future if we are in the area.
Gorgeous historic house! Every last detail of this house is gorgeous and carefully considered. The photos honestly don't do it justice - the house was more spacious and beautiful in person. No signs of being a rental, and not a single touch of ikea anywhere in the house. The owner of this house is obviously a designer of some sort.
The kitchen is equipped with the necessities for cooking - we were especially pleased that there was a set of high quality knives (so many rentals have cheap, dull knives that make cooking a chore). The stovetop is fabulous and powerful, and we also enjoyed using the grill in the backyard.
The bedrooms were serene and lovely. Linens were all nice quality, and mattresses were very comfortable in all 3 bedrooms. Both bathrooms were quite nice, and there was plenty of hot water (the water is solar-heated, and one day we had to use a backup since it was cloudy, and that worked well too).
There was an excellent selection of entertaining books (including some very cool history books which kept my father-in-law, a history professor, occupied for hours). No cable, but netflix and appleTV were set up and worked well on the large tv.
We stayed with my 2 young boys and my older inlaws - the owner was gracious and accommodating about the kids (note that this isn't really a kid-friendly house -- it's too nice! -- but the owner kindly bought a pack n play for the baby - and we traveled with a huge box of toys). I wouldn't choose Hudson as a destination for families, although it's certainly an interesting place. We loved the farmers market and stocked up on incredible hudson valley produce, meat, and cheese, and we loved the fancy food store around the block.
