A Large and Luxurious Hyde Park House: $679.6K

  |  February 13, 2024

Today, Upstater’s looking at a large and luxurious Hyde Park house.

Built in 1998, it fairly screams the “Wolf of Wall Street” new-money vibe that was popular back then. But if you love luxury—and don’t mind spending a little extra on much-needed updates—this house is for you. The brick exterior angles around a landscaped front yard.

The front door opens to a two-story foyer tiled in gray ceramic flooring. A white-and-oak-spindled staircase curves its way upstairs.

Taking advantage of the peaked ceiling, big windows climb past curtain level in the sunken living room. Wall-to-wall gray carpeting muffles footsteps.

French doors punch through peachy walls, flanking an entertainment center. A sleek fireplace sits on an adjoining wall.

The carpeting continues into the dining room, which has blue walls with white chair-rail molding.

Cherry cabinets contrast against white, solid-surface countertops in the kitchen. The cabinetry’s in great shape, and we like that built-in spice rack and the wall oven and microwave.

The walk-in pantry is a cook’s dream.

The blue and white tiles on the island, though? We’d swap them out. A breakfast nook sits in a windowed alcove next to a secondary staircase. The house measures more than 7,000 square feet—we’d need a map to get around.

A movie-viewing room has its own space next to a library/den.

Upstairs features three bedrooms. Carpeting abounds throughout this floor.

This bath has a shower and an oak sink.

This one probably has a dual-sink vanity, though we can see only one sink.

The primary bedroom, we bet, echoes due to its size.

It’s got side-by-side showers—a novel idea. Hop in to wash up before…

…sinking into the five-person hot tub, also inside the primary bathroom. Hosting a get-together, and inviting your guests into the bathroom to continue the fun? Not weird at all, apparently, in this house.

The house includes a walk-up attic and this big garage space to hold a boat.

The basement is equally large.

Plus, a two-car attached garage holds even more motorized toys.

A whitewashed expanse of decking matches the back of the house, overlooking rolling lawns.

The house sits on 1.67 acres, southeast of Hyde Park proper, in the Haviland area. Drive six minutes to Val-Kill and the Eleanor Roosevelt Historic Site. Ten minutes gets you to Marist College; the same drivetime brings you to the Culinary Institute of America.
