Hudson Valley House: Charming Home Tour

Hubby and I keep going back and forth. Should we move, or should we add onto the house and do some renovations? The thought of doing either stresses me out a bit. Sharing a home tour each Sunday here on the blog fills me with inspiration on ways to improve our house. For me, it’s a creative process that I enjoy and it leaves me feeling productive. I found new inspiration with today’s tour that features a Hudson Valley house renovated by Crisp Architects. The home is filled with all the details you expect to see in a charming older home.

The kitchen is surprisingly bright and airy. This is my dream kitchen. Plenty of white, yet it’s off-set with warm wood tones so it’s not cold and clinical. Fun color adds plenty of interest and cute pendant lights finish it all off.

An industrial-style range is perfect for cooking a gourmet meal, which I love to do. Yes, I could definitely live in this Hudson Valley House.

The living room showcases rustic charm with a real stone fireplace. Warm hues pair with cool blues to give this room a cozy and comfortable vibe.

Based on the cute little barnyard rug, I’m guessing that this is a playroom of sorts for the children.

The entryway reveals the history of the home with its architectural detailing and wide plank floors. I’m in love with the trim work on the stair wall and need to find out if hubby can replicate it. Of course, with my newfound power tool skills, maybe I can help.

The living room isn’t shy of architectural details, either. Victorian-style trim graces the windows and fireplace mantel. This room pairs a bit of elegance with its beautiful time-worn features.

Cool blues make a serene statement in the master bedroom, while rich wood furniture adds warmth and depth.

On the other side of the bedroom is this to-die-for fireplace!  I told hubby that if we do add on or renovate, I want a fireplace in our bedroom. I’m certain it won’t be as grand as this one, but a girl can dream!

Master Bedroom Fireplace. Yes, Please!


The master bathroom features a claw foot tub centered under an expansive window. A walk-in shower is also included in this stunning bathroom.

Gorgeous house, isn’t it?

    Don’t let me burst your bubble, but this is probably a 600,000 renovation!
    If you like your location, have lots of memories, add on.
    List what you want to accomplish by moving.
    List everything you want in your current home that isn’t there. Then scratch off what is a want not a need.
    Get down to 5-6 items and scratch for the final 3-4 items you can’t live without.
    What remains on the list is what you need to make happen. Don’t end up with a cookie cutter home.
    Find a contractor that can add 1-2 features that to YOU stand out in an old home.
    Don’t go crazy with the $$$$$, you have to pay for this and also be ready for retirement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Love this home.
    Do you have the paint color in the master bedroom?

  8. Lyn Curtis - Australia says:

    What a beautiful home! But remember that you already have a beautiful farmhouse that holds precious memories of your family. Selling, buying and moving is very costly, as you are probably aware of. I would look at the costs of moving versus the cost of renovations that you would like to do, and then reassess everything. Also would you have the land that you currently have for your horses etc if you moved? You both need to ask yourselves why do we want to move? I wish you luck and will be watching to see what your decision is.

    • You bring up many good points that need to be considered, Lyn. I think we just need to sit down and make a list of pros and cons on whether to move or add on. Thank you for your helpful suggestions!!

  9. Fabulous house! Love every inch!

  10. This is one of the prettiest homes I’ve seen in blog land. The colors, the style, the wood, all so inviting. Thanks so much for posting this beautiful and tasteful home.

  11. What a lovely home!
