One look at this gorgeous home and you’re reminded of the stately, turn-of-the-century Long Island estates. With gardens for days, sweeping lawns, and an uninterrupted view of the Hudson, all seen from the curving driveway that makes this home elegant and classy from the minute you approach. The building may hail from the early 1900’s, but with the recent renovations (2007!) everything about this property is just plain lux. The entire thing could be the setting for a golden age period drama, it’s got that kind of character about it.
Seriously, we’re not joking. This place has six bedrooms. Six. Each of them is spacious, with wood floors, lots of windows and closets galore. The entire estate is full of small details to admire, and it’s impossible not to be impressed by the craftsmanship of the massive staircase. It’s mahogany, and it’s as grand as they come. There’s a cute little seating nook on the second floor landing, three working fireplaces, expansive chef’s-dream of a kitchen, spacious sun porch, and an in-ground pool. The pool’s not exactly a detail, but you get the idea.
Let’s take some time away from the exceptional features of this home to show you around the area. We’ve heard location is pretty important in real estate, and it doesn’t get much better than this. Only fifty miles from New York City, with Cornwall-on-Hudson next door and the larger hubs of Newburgh and Beacon a ten minute drive away, this place is ideal. With the nearby small town charm, the not-too-far call of the city, and even a couple museums, playhouses and Zagat-rated restaurants in between, there’s nothing stopping you from enjoying every aspect of this country/city residence.
So take a good look ladies and gents, this is a place that sits near the pristine, state-kept beauty of Storm King and the Hudson River, has every amenity you could want (did we mention the horse barn and detached garage?), and gives you access to village life and city living. It’s glamorous, the owners are ready to sell, and the pictures do little justice to the incredible beauty of the landscape and interior. I’d recommend pouring over these images, there’s no way this listing will be up long. Take a peek at the layout, and all the pictures at McCaffrey Realty, and tell Pam that Upstater sent you.
