A Historic Home in New City for $3M

  |  September 22, 2023

Ok, so this is neither five figures nor made of brick. But its heritage and property—along with an unheard-of 32 acres in Rockland County—make it a place worth viewing.

The Peter DePew house was built in 1750, as its sandstone facade testifies. It’s got classic lines, a white picket fence, and simple landscaping.

The living room showcases ceiling beams across its low ceiling; an oversized fireplace has a built-in bookcase next to it. The floors are beautifully original, and the windows have the deep sills that come naturally to a sandstone house.

The house’s layout allows for flexible placement of furniture—for example, this dining room could easily be reconfigured to an office or anything else the new owner would like.

The kitchen is plenty big enough for a dining table. It’s been modernized with white cabinets, an aproned farmhouse sink, and butcher-block countertops.

A half-bath has a modern vanity that contrasts nicely with the old-fashioned ceramic doorknob.

The house’s 1,485 square feet would suggest at least a few bedrooms, but the house has just one. It’s a beauty, though, with a hardwood floor, white walls, and a barnwood door.

There’s room for a sitting area at the other end of it, too.

The full bathroom is fully modern, with penny tile, a floating vanity, and a deep tub/shower.

The 32 acres include this awesome barn, with two garage bays and tons of space for livestock, storage, or artsy pursuits.

Just look at the workmanship here. It’s gorgeous inside.

It’s perfect for the hobby farmer, while being smack-dab in the middle of civilization. It’s close to the new (haha, circa-1950) Route 304, as well as the Palisades Parkway (36 minutes to the George Washington Bridge) and Route 9W.  It’s under 10 minutes to delectables at Red Barn Cidery, too. Plus, the new owner can humble-brag about the house and property being on the National Register of Historic Places. Bonus: The taxes are relatively low, thanks to an agricultural discount.
