Olde Saratoga Beauty
41 George Street, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
Q & A with Listing Agent Kathleen “Kati” Hauser
What are the home’s most valuable features for prospective buyers?
This beautiful home’s location and privacy are very hard to find, especially at this price. Just a skip away from the Fasig Tipton Sales Pavilion, around the corner from the famous Saratoga Racetrack and an easy walk to Congress Park and downtown, it just doesn’t get any better! A wide, long driveway with the ability to park at least 6 cars leads to a very private backyard oasis featuring gorgeous mature perennial gardens. The 24 x 24 detached garage addition is also a major value add.
How would you describe the home’s style/floor plan?
This grande dame is the quintessential “Olde Saratoga” Victorian. It features charm of the turn of the century yet brought into modernity with lovely updates. Original woodwork from an era gone by mixes seamlessly with reproduction trims and pieces created by master craftsmen. From the front parlor with its cozy gas fireplace to the main floor living spaces, there is a nice flow for easy entertaining. Four bedrooms and two and one half baths round out the home.
Are there any unusual amenities?
Who doesn’t love a “Saratoga Porch?” This home has a wraparound veranda allowing for peaceful relaxation on a very quiet street. A side “peeling porch” is just off the kitchen overlooking the lovely stone patio, backyard and gardens. Upstairs the 5th bedroom was remodeled into a fabulous Master Walk-in Closet, sure to please all.
What’s your favorite thing about the property?
I love the charm and character of this home which has been painstakingly preserved by its owners. Their tasteful updates are lovely and on point, and the natural sunlight streaming in from the eastern and southern exposures can’t be beat!
