34 South Franklin St  •  Athens

Welcome to Chateau Marvelous, an exuberant example of Victorian architecture built in the French Second Empire style and set among a row of magnificent 19th century houses in the most charming hamlet of Athens on Hudson.

Three full floors of large, high-ceilinged rooms offer a graceful layout with a convenient flow leading from one formal room to another. Period French doors open from the parlors directly onto the front veranda where one can sit and gaze at the Hudson River and the Athens Lighthouse. 

Multiple bedrooms on the second floor surround a large stair hall with a bold staircase rising to the full third floor of additional rooms.

The Mansard roof has been completely restored and the decorative slates shine like new. Additional restoration may be required to bring this charmonte maison back to its original glory. 

The property lot includes a two-story carriage house also in need of some restoration. Athens may be one of the most enviable small communities along the Hudson River offering the quiet of a small residential hamlet but with the convenience of several restaurants and cafes. Fifteen minutes to the Hudson Amtrak, two hours from NYC and tucked far, far away from the frenzy of the modern world.
