Friday Real Estate Porn: Greenville Manor, $1.35 Million

Yep, while Greenville is generally an affordable spot, there are a few high-end parcels for sale, including this five-bed, three-bath, 3,500-square foot house from the 1700s.

We think the inside doesn’t quite live up to the romance of the exterior — that country kitchen is not for us. But it’s one of the few spots where some flowered wallpaper actually works for us!

The kicker is the dining room, next to that huge stone hearth. Looks like home.

Greenville Cape, $249,900

Sometimes it’s hard to tell how cute a house is when there are so many knick-knacks and chachkas obscuring the view. This circa-1792 former parsonage (we’d love to see what the church looked like!) in the town of Greenville sure seems adorable, but it’s a little tough to see past all the stuff. Still, we like the archways, wood floors, fireplaces, and the recessed windows in the living room. Property is not terribly big, less than a half acre, but it’s a pretty yard with lots of trees on a corner lot, walking distance to a restaurant and a pub in the hamlet of Freehold. The house itself is a decent size, over 3000 square feet, and includes an apartment, according to the listing. We would probably redo the pink walls.

Baths: 4
Square Feet: 3,344
Year Built: 1792

Upstater Destinations: Greene County Drive-in Movie Theaters

Hi-Way Drive-In, Coxsackie, via Facebook

The drive-in movie: We can hardly utter those words without smelling the intoxicating aroma of hot popcorn mingled with freshly-cut grass. If hitting a drive-in is one of your favorite summertime activities, as it is ours, you’re in luck. Greene County has two drive-in theaters open during the warmer months.

In Coxsackie, one of our favorite towns in upstate NY, there’s the Hi-Way Drive-in, with four screens, each featuring two movies of a different rating (one screen for the family movies, one screen for teenage movies, two screens for adult movies). Admission is $8 for ages 12+, $3 for kids 3-11, and free for under 3.

The Greenville Drive-In in the town of Greenville (this week’s Town of the Week) is much smaller than the Hi-Way with only one screen. Originally opened in 1955, the Greenville Drive-In sat for years unused, looking for a buyer to bring it back to life. It’s open for this summer the first time since 2009, and in addition to movies, the Drive-In will be holding special events and flea markets throughout the season. You can check out the latest updates on their official Facebook page.

The Hi-Way Drive-In is located on Route 9W between Coxsackie and Catskill (GMAP). The Greenville Drive-In is located on Route 32 (GMAP). Now grab the kids (or not!), gas up the car, and head upstate for some summer movie fun!

Vintage Farmhouse in Greenville, $399,000

As we’ve mentioned previously, Greenville (Greene County) is a great place to look for a farm. There are several on the market right now, but this we particularly like this one. The farmhouse is just lovely and large at 3200 square feet and 7 bedrooms. The kitchen is in desperate need of additional counter space, but aside from that, there are no obvious flaws (we’re just going to graciously ignore the floral walls in the dining room and the upstairs hallway, which aren’t THAT bad). We like the wood floors and the big enclosed porch, too. Sadly, that great upright piano the dining room probably doesn’t come with the house.

Property is 13.5 acres with 7 acres of pasture, 2 barns and a couple of outbuildings. Not surprisingly, it’s located in a rural area, approximately 3.5 miles from the hamlet of Greenville.

917 King Hill Road, Greenville (Select Sotheby’s International) GMAP

Square Feet: 3,200
Year Built: 1890
Land: 13.5 acres
Taxes: $6350
Features: Vaulted ceilings, original post and beam construction, pastures, barns, privacy.
