The Jenkins Homestead, built in 1812 with an early 18th century kitchen-wing complete with its original cooking hearth and bee-hive oven, has remained in the same family through nine generations.
This is a rare opportunity to own an intact period house in one of the most charming villages in our area. 6 bedrooms, multiple fireplaces, three staircases and so many original details, all with a tale to tell. History is steeped into the very fabric of this house and its grand formal rooms with 10' ceilings and hand carved mantels. An ancient apple orchard and towering specimen trees grace over 2 acres of lovely lawns entirely enclosed by high stone walls and picturesque picket fencing with a carriage house, a work shop, a wood shed, and wash house. Rensselaerville is on the National Register of Historic Places and sits high in the Helderberg Hills of Albany County surrounded by thousands of acres of protected land with miles of hiking trails. 45 minutes from Hudson Amtrak & 3 hrs from NYC.
