Property description

Charming, carriage house, built in 1888, converted into a comfy 1 BR apartment (non-smoking). Completely renovated and updated in 2009. The apartment is perfect if you want more amenities than a standard hotel:
- full kitchen with modern appliances (range, microwave, dishwasher, toaster oven & coffee maker)
- 1 BR with large closet and queen size bed
- living room/kitchen/dining area with cathedral ceilings, modern, tasteful, comfortable furniture, including a queen size sofa bed
- bathroom with large walk in shower and laundry
- air conditioning, gas fireplace
- deck overlooking garden with seating, charcoal grill

The carriage house has a private entrance and off-street parking for two cars. The property (house and grounds) are non-smoking. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate pets.

The carriage house is incredibly close to downtown (2 blocks), yet still residential. Saratoga Springs has a charming, walkable downtown, with many excellent restaurants, pubs, nightclubs, a new 11-screen, state of art movie theater, Cafe Lena coffee house, gourmet markets, a natural foods store, a grocery store, toy stores, clothing boutiques, and many local amenities (such as a bank, post office, FedEx Kinkos, etc.). The property is about a block from the City Center.

We are a 15 minute walk to Fasig Tipton and the Saratoga Race Course, home for the last 151 years to Thoroughbred Racing from Late July to Early September.

The Saratoga Performing Arts Center, on the edge of town, is the summer home to the New York City Ballet, the Philadelphia Orchestra, Opera Saratoga, the Home Made Theater, and features many well know jazz and pop artists. Saratoga Springs is also home to the National Dance Museum and is a frequent venue for many dance events and performances. Skidmore College is nearby, and a source of wonderful lectures, musical events, and also the Tang Museum.


From April - late October, we have a wonderful Farmer's Market in High Rock Park, about 1/4 block from the carriage house. Shop for local vegetables, fruit, cheeses, wine, beef, lamb, chick & pork, and baked goods, Wednesdays from 3 - 6 pm and Saturdays from 9 am - 1 pm.

Nightlife is lively in Saratoga Springs, especially between May and September, with many clubs offering music and dancing.

Car: Not Necessary

Saratoga Springs is an historic and very charming small town in upstate New York. In addition to being home to Skidmore College, we are the summer home of the Saratoga Springs Race Course (home of Thoroughbred Racing for 150 years), The New York City Ballet, Opera Saratoga, The Philadelphia Orchestra, Saratoga Performing Arts Center, and the National Dance Museum. Saratoga Springs has many charming restaurants and attractions year round, and also holds many seasonal events such as Dance Flurry, Beer Week, the Victorian Streetwalk and Chowderfest. We also have a twice weekly farmers market from May to October that is outstanding, and operates about 200 feet from our residence.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I moved here in 2008, from San Francisco. I love to travel, and to me, it is more comfortable to stay in a private home. I try to make your stay as comfortable and easy as I would want it to be.

Why the Owner Chose Saratoga Springs:
We bought this property because we wanted to live in town, within walking distance of all Saratoga Springs has to offer. There is so much to do in Saratoga Springs, from entertainment, arts, great restaurants and music venues, plus shopping. Just 2 blocks from downtown, it is quick and easy to walk everywhere, and we do!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Saratoga Springs is such a wonderful town. Even though we're small, we have so many features that cities our size don't have, thanks to all the people who come visit Skidmore, the race track, the performing arts center, and so many other events that go on in town, such as the Victorian Street Walk, Dance Flurry, and ChowderFest.
