Originally the coat room for the Italian social club that once occupied the building, the owners designed this kitchen featuring a six burner professional gas range, stainless steel counters, and a wood block island. This spacious eat-in kitchen is the life of the party! It has original crown moulding, pine floors, and an open chef style concept. A pantry closet offers out of sight storage. The 14 foot ceilings make this big space feel warm and open.

While entertaining in the main kitchen just a step away, this butler’s kitchen is the perfect place for washing up. This second kitchen area features high gloss white appliances, the newest trend in modern kitchens according to Realtor magazine and HGTV, a new energy star dishwasher, a two bay apron/farm kitchen sink, and pull out drawer storage. The goose neck chrome faucet with built in flex hose means no dish is too hard to wash. Southern exposure brings lots of natural light to show off the hardwood floors! A half bath with additional storage is at the end of the room.

In the heart of downtown Albany, it is rare to find such a quiet yard to relax in. Raised beds make the garden pop in the warm months and the large deck is perfect for entertaining. With no neighbors on the south side, the sun pours in all day!

This remains the most unique feature of the house. At the turn of the 20th century, the house became an Italian Social Club called Le Marche and the bar was the main attraction! The full length wooden bar is a delightful addition to the home and makes for the perfect spot to get away from it all and enjoy a nice drink with friends. There is lots of storage and a newly upgraded forced hot water boiler and point of use water heater in a small room off of the bar. This space also features a laundry area with front load Whirlpool Duet Washer and Dryer.
