This brownstone exhibits the “best examples in this part of Albany of the Richardsonian Romanesque style applied to a small-scale residence,” so say the authors from Albany Architecture, Guide to the City, Mount Ida Press, 1993. The most famous Richardsonian Romanesque architecture in Albany are of course the State Capitol and Albany City Hall. Built in 1894, 5 St Josephs is a massive brownstone with a monumental front staircase leading to a stone semi-circular arched doorway with keystone. The large third story bay window, features three uniquely designed stained glass windows, above which is a roundel eyebrow window and an ornate parapet with a keystone.
5 St. Josephs Terrace is located in the heart of downtown Albany. Across the street are St. Joseph’s Park, ideal for letting your dog run, and Van Rensselaer Park, ideal for letting the kids swing and slide on the expansive jungle gym. Just steps from the house are all of the urban amenities - fine dining, the Capital Repertory theater, the premier Palace performing arts auditorium, the Riverfront Park, Corning Preserve, Alive at 5 Concerts, and much more.
