Have a look at the fabulous Green House Mansion – an 1855 Victorian Brownstone In Troy, New York.
Guess what? It’s on the market so we get to see the phenomenal interior!
Listed for a cool $1,195,000, the freestanding Green House Mansion has 12 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms and is currently divided into four rental units.
But don’t let the word “rental” dampen your expectations… this place is the height of elegance!
Stunning original details, including inlaid hardwood floors, 14-foot pressed-tin ceilings, plaster molding, arched doorways, and pocket doors make this place a historic treasure.
The cream walls and neutral, modern furniture showcase all the rich, classic features.
Some background history about the Green House Mansion from its Instagram page (yes it has its own Instagram page!)… Homes on this prestigious block are named in honor of influential former owners. The Green House Mansion was named for Moses Green, known as “Captain Green” around Troy. A Union Army Captain during the Civil War, he co-owned his family’s hardware business and lived at The Mansion from 1867-1874.
There is something about this New York Brownstone that transports one to an opulent Parisian apartment, non?
