Built in 1870 for local attorney George Esselstyn, this 3,380 square foot Italianate Villa is one of the few remaining historic homes with all the original details intact! The 0.77 acre property is on the market for $2.35 million in Rhinebeck, New York. Listing details: Rare Rhinebeck Residence! 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 pièce de résistance 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. The property is on the market for $2.35 million with Gary DiMauro of Four Seasons Sotheby’s International Realty.
