Towering high above the Hudson, this Port Ewen brick Victorian holds the honor of being the tallest private residence in town…
This week on Upstater, we’re delving into the listings in search of historic/landmark homes in the Hudson Valley. We would be remiss if we did not include this tall drink of water built in 1870.
The house once belonged to the local Catholic parish in the hamlet of Port Ewen, Ulster County. No wonder the views of the river are so heavenly. Also heavenly is the 3,360-square-foot interior with plenty of windows to watch the sailboats go by from your perch.
So, let’s step inside that transom glass door and see what lies inside…
Original details are almost too numerous to list, but the highlights include: Foyer wainscotting, stairs, and railing; wideboard flooring and period woodwork; and crown moldings. Ceilings vary from 10-12 feet. The layout has the master suite and sitting room situated on the ground floor, while the living room/dining room/kitchen on the second floor. The rest of the bedrooms are on the third floor, and the fourth floor is a large walk-up attic.
Unsurprisingly, the house takes full advantage of its singular river views. Take your coffee on the third floor balcony and feel oh-so-lucky to be living in such rarified air.
Located minutes from Kingston’s Rondout neighborhood, 10 minutes from the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge, 25 minutes from New Paltz, and less than 2 hours from NYC.
