Built in 1851 by the Jones family, owners of the Hudson Valley Paper Company, 1749 New Scotland Road is part of the rich history of the Slingerlands Hamlet. A truly a gracious home, set on a lovely treed and lushly landscaped property, you will be proud to pull into the driveway knowing this is your home.

With 9+ foot ceilings, ample windows and French doors throughout, the first floor strikes the perfect balance between grand and homey. Warm colored wood floors, mahogany moldings, period appropriate wall paper, built-in accent pieces and contemporary paint colors create a consistent style between the living, dining and family rooms. Imagine hosting holiday dinners and celebrations in these spacious rooms! It’s not overstated to label the renovated kitchen as a chef’s kitchen. Wood cabinets fill the room, the granite counter is large, the appliances high-end and the skylights provide natural light, ensuring that meal preparation is never a chore. A large mud-room behind the kitchen is a much appreciated modern addition to the home as is the renovated half bath. There’s an unusually large amount of storage on the main floor, especially considering the age of the home.

With two staircases providing access, the second floor is divided into two wings. The eastern end features three large bedrooms, a recently updated bath, and a second floor laundry room (with tons of storage). The master wing boasts a large bedroom with two closets (including a walk-in), a wood paneled sleeping porch (the perfect spot to begin and end your day), an office and a full bath.

In case that’s not enough living space, the third floor features two rooms and a half bath. So whether you are looking for a cozy hang out spot, an additional office or a place to send your teenager, there is more than enough room up here.

The property surrounding the home is as lovely as the house itself. Shrubbery provides privacy from the street and mature shade trees border the side and back yards. An impressively sized three car garage was built to the highest specifications with a second floor loft that has the potential to be a workout room, home bar, or artist studio - the options are limitless. Whether you are playing a game of catch in the side yard, hosting a barbecue on the back patio or enjoying a cocktail on the covered side porch, there are so many places to relax and enjoy the yard. If you are looking to venture off your property, the Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail is easily accessed from Upper Font Grove Road, enabling you to get to the center of Voorheesville or the heart of Old Delmar in mere minutes.

1749 New Scotland Road is the perfect mixture of modern updates and old house charm. Recent renovations range from the large (kitchen) to the smaller (new garage door openers) and everything in between, ensuring that there is little left for you to do other than unpack your bags.
