A century ago, this structure was a bustling train station; today it's home base for two former Manhattanites — John Schultz and husband James Burgess — who bought the adorable 3000 square foot Stanfordville station a year ago. Just look at how they lovingly restored "The Station" (as they call it) while honoring its rich history.

The ticket office has been transformed into the home's main living space with all the original wood intact.

The former platform (where, in my imagination, Victorian ladies used to wait for trains underneath their lace parasols) got an upgrade and became an enclosed porch.

And just check out that great backyard (and a stream!). Looks like a little slice of Hudson Valley heaven. So cute!
