Green House Mansion, 199 2nd Street, Troy NY, is a Victorian brownstone, built in 1855 and facing the private Washington Park in historic downtown Troy, NY. Showcased on the popular Instagram account @GreenHouseMansion, the free-standing elegant 12 br, 6 ba building sits on a triple-wide lot on the most desirable block of the city’s nicest street. Ornate architectural details, inlaid hardwood floors, tin-pressed ceilings, hand-poured plaster moldings, arched and pocket doors, 14-foot ceilings and formal perennial gardens make this a truly magnificent residential and investment property.
Green House Mansion and the surrounding homes make up some of the country’s best preserved urban landscape from the 19th century, sought after as sets by award-winning filmmakers. Green House Mansion is featured in HBO and Julian Fellow’s The Gilded Age and Martin Scorsese’s The Age of Innocence.

Currently rented as a 4-unit, the Mansion could easily become a 5-unit or potentially a 6-unit when including the garden level. 

The 103’ wide lot is the largest vacant land facing Washington Park, a private urban ornamental park fashioned after squares in London and Manhattan. Park adjacent home owners and their tenants have exclusive keyed entrance to this space. 

At Green House Mansion, the double, 12-foot arched door entry way opens a passage in time to the age of Queen Victoria’s reign. With many newly renovated and meticulously restored spaces, including kitchens and bathrooms, this is an incredible opportunity for a developer or entrepreneur looking for a highly desirable historic yet livable property

  • Unit 1 (5 br 2 ba)

  • Unit 2 (3 br 2ba)

The Mansion is a one-of-a-kind property, centrally located in an area that is the best the Capital Region has to offer. Troy is 2.5 hours north of NYC and 3 hours from Boston and Montreal.  Albany International Airport and Rensselaer Train Station are 10-15 minutes away. From Green House Mansion, a picturesque walk of less than a mile into downtown Troy takes one past beautiful mansions, Russell Sage College and the Troy Public Library. Downtown Troy features outstanding shops and restaurants, a Montessori School and the beautiful Troy Music Hall. Troy’s year-round, 100-vendor farmers market was ranked number 1 in the country by the American Farmland Trust. The Hudson River is a few blocks away. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the first engineering school in America, and the world-renowned Emma Willard School are close by. Saratoga Springs, The Hudson Valley, The Berkshires, Adirondacks and Vermont are a short drive away.
