About 181 Phila Street

Historic architecture meets modern luxury: rare opportunity to own one of Saratoga Springs' most distinctive properties. Once owned by the renowned Whitney family, this home comes with an impressive legacy. Owner Payne Whitney's father, W.C. Whitney, is widely credited with revitalizing the Saratoga Race Course and making it into the racetrack we know today. In addition, his granddaughter, Joan Whitney Payson, owned the home through 1975. Joan was the co-founder and majority owner of the New York Mets baseball franchise, and the first woman to own a major-league team in North America without inheriting it!

Fully revived, this Queen Anne Victorian style home has been meticulously renovated for unsurpassed living and entertaining. Situated on a large corner lot walking distance to downtown Saratoga and the historic thoroughbred race track, the sun-drenched home boasts elegance & privacy. This 6+ bed, 7 bath is timeless in design: original details have been preserved & replicated along with modern amenities for luxury and comfort. Oversized master suite with fireplace & grand dressing room, gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances, exquisite light fixtures throughout, original stained glass window; outdoor living room overlooking the private yard & pool; and a quintessential Saratoga wrap around porch. Home is a 'smart home' with all of today's upgrades. No detail overlooked.
