Hudson evokes country charm
Fish scales, gables, a painted ellipse window pediment and an oval louvered attic vent give the Hudson the charm of a Victorian cottage, but without the remodeling headaches you would encounter buying the authentic article.
Rooms in this 1,750 square foot home are much brighter, too, than you'd find in a vintage Victorian. A sunny bay window expands the nook that connects family room and kitchen, and in the living room, a bank of three long windows fills most of the front wall.
Lofty 9-foot ceilings give a spacious feel to the living room and dining room. Graceful arched openings join the dining room to the kitchen and living room. A covered porch mutes the light in the living room, so draperies and furniture will retain their color longer.
Counter and cupboard space in the spacious, well-equipped kitchen is augmented by a long eating bar, a built-in desk and a roomy pantry. More storage space is found in the two-section utility room, conveniently close to the kitchen and garage. The small powder room is mere steps away from both the front door and garage entrance.
All three bedrooms are upstairs. In the master suite, double doors offer wide access to a large walk-in closet, and an arched opening leads into a master bath with dual vanity, spa tub and partitioned toilet and shower. You can slide the inner door closed to contain steam or provide privacy.
Bedroom two in the Hudson boasts a cozy window seat, nestled between two closets, while bedroom three is brighter and has a view of the street.
