About the property

Luxury 5 Bedroom, 3 Full Bath With Heated Saltwater Pool Just Steps From Track

Welcome to 148 Nelson Ave. Saratoga Springs. This 5 bedroom, 3 full bathroom home has all of the features you have been searching for:

When you walk up to 148 Nelson Ave, you are greeted by the huge Front Porch. The front porch has shade in the morning and full sun in the afternoon. Perfect for enjoying a book, or people watching on Nelson Ave as people walk to the Race Track. The porch has ceiling fans to keep it cool, as well as custom Australian Coolaroo Shades that can be raised or lowered to any desired height. You can lower them for full privacy, or raise them to see the views. There is also a table that seats 4 on the front porch to enjoy lunch or a game of cards with friends. The porch has am L-shaped Rattan sectional that seats about 10 people comfortably.

When you enter the house from the front, you are welcomed by a large Living Room with plenty of seating around the stone, gas fireplace. There is also a couch, ottoman and buffet to help you entertain. This section of the house is a great place to sit with friends and family without a TV in the room. As you enter the Dining Room through the double french doors, there is a large table with seating for 8-10. The dining room with coffered ceiling is decorated with silk curtains and Phillip Jeffries Grasscloth wallpaper. It is warm and inviting and open to the kitchen.

The Kitchen is updated, fully equipped, and features granite countertops, stainless steal appliances and a dual fuel stove with built in griddle. Perfect for making pancakes and eggs in the morning. There is plenty of cupboard space for all of your groceries. Or, if you prefer to eat out, there is a host of restaurants within walking distance. The kitchen also features a built in banquet which seats 8 more adults or about 10 children comfortably. This is where we spend most of our time as a family, playing board games and enjoying meals together.

There is a large Mudroom as you exit the kitchen to the driveway. The Mudroom has built-in cubbies and plenty of storage for coats, bags and shoes. The side exit leads you to the large driveway which can fit between 5 and 6 cars which is important during track season. There is also a basketball hoop attached to the garage. The Bathroom on the first level is right off the kitchen and features a pedestal sink and full shower.

The Family Room at the back of the house has a 60 inch flat screen TV and Bose surround sound system. The audio system pipes music through multiple zones in the house, allowing you to play your music on the front porch, inside the house, on the back stone patio and out by the pool. The family room has comfortable leather couches and enough room for the entire family. The built in bar features a white wine refrigerator, a red wine refrigerator, a beverage refrigerator and a commercial grade ice maker. You will have plenty of ice to make drinks and fill your cooler for the track.

There are sliding glass doors leading out to the private backyard perfect for family fun and entertaining. It features a large stone patio, built in gas grill, heated salt water pool, and a 6 person Artisian hot tub.

On the second floor features a large Master Bedroom with full bath which overlooks the backyard. It has a king bed, nightstands, TV and alarm clock. The Master Bathroom has a large vanity with double sinks and stall shower. There are 3 other bedrooms on the second floor. Bedroom 2 has a Queen Bed and full size crib. Bedroom 3 has a Queen Bed. Bedroom 4 has three twin beds, which includes a twin bunk bed and one single twin. There is a Third Bathroom with shower and tub in the second floor hallway.

There is a Recreation room on the lower level with a Queen size futon sleeper sofa, and a twin daybed with trundle. The lower level also features Bedroom 5 with a Queen bed and window bench. There is also a full size washer and dryer in the basement.

The house has 3 zone heat and 2 zone air conditioning.

NOTE: We only rent to responsible adults and families. No parties. No loud groups. Full time residents live on both sides of the house. If you are coming to Saratoga to rent a house for a large group to 'party in', this is not the house for you.

Outstanding home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a large group for the long Labor Day weekend. This place is a gem. The home is totally renovated and updated with every desirable feature and high end furnishing. The decor is inviting, comfortable and relaxing. It is a short walk to the Saratoga race track and horse racing museum. Town and the Saratoga Spa and Golf is a short distance and makes for a great bike ride. Morning coffee while relaxing on the front porch was the best. We ate most meals on the fabulous patio after a dip in the pool but the

indoor dining and gathering areas are large and just as comfortable.

The manager is very responsive and easy to deal with, I highy recommend this property.

Luxe accommodations within steps of track and town

  • 5 of 5

Besides the best location, this house is in mint condition. New kitchen and baths. AC works well. Everything was immaculate. The salt water pool is ultra private and relaxing. We didn't need the heater, as it was the perfect temperature. The sore back crew enjoyed the hot tub as well.

The house has everything you need including beach towels. It also has the best ice maker! The keyless, coded entry made in and out easy for all, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Was perfect. Looking to rent again next summer! Owners very accommodating.
