A Raised Ranch Right on the River in Rockland County for $529K

  |  May 2, 2023

Upstater is visiting a hidden-gem part of Rockland County on the banks of the Hudson River: Tomkins Cove, a hamlet in the North Rockland town of Stony Point.

This three-bedroom raised ranch has three baths and lots of space within its 2,975-square-foot interior. The exterior is cheerful with creamy yellow siding topped with white, fishscale-sided gables.

If you want to be close to the river, you’ve got it here: The Hudson is a mere 100 feet from the front door.

The home’s upper-level entry eliminates the usual decision-making that comes with raised ranches and bilevels: Do I go up, or down? Here, you’re up and you have the option of heading downstairs. The entry and the entire upper floor have hardwood flooring.

The living room has a marble-faced fireplace and French doors topped with a Palladian window.

The living room leads through a doorway into the ceramic-tiled kitchen.

It could use some updating, as the white appliances and builder-grade oak cabinets attest. But it’s big enough for an eat-in table and chairs (or island if the new owner cares to renovate).

It’s got a back door out to a small deck and stairs leading down to the backyard.

The house has three bathrooms: Two up, and one down. The listing doesn’t describe where each one is, so here they are in quick succession. The first has a brown granite vanity and a pinkish-beige-tiled, walk-in shower.

The second has a salt-and-pepper-granite vanity and a tub/shower combination.

The third has a wider, brown granite vanity and a petite tub/shower.

The three bedrooms are all upstairs, and share the same design scheme of gray walls and gray wood flooring.

This room has double closets.

This one could be described as a blank canvas.

The basement has this laundry room, with vintage vinyl tile on the floor and lime-green accents on the wire shelving above the washer and on the ceiling trim.

The bulk of the basement is carpeted, with sliders out to the yard.

The backyard isn’t huge, as it backs up to a hill and there’s no patio. You can see the kitchen deck and stairs here.

The property is just under a quarter acre, but who needs a large lot when you can stroll right to the water’s edge? Plus the house is close to Harriman State Park and tons of hiking trails.
