A Zen-Inspiring Contemporary in Nyack for $849.5K

  |  August 26, 2022

We’re concluding our skylight-lit week with this stunner overlooking the Hudson River in Nyack.

Built in the 1970s, this three-bed, two-bath contemporary rambles its way along the mountainside off Route 9W in the Rockland County village.

The living room has floor-to-ceiling windows that follow the lines of a high, pitched ceiling; hardwood floors; a contemporary soapstone-faced fireplace; and two sets of sliders out to an expansive deck.

The skylights here and throughout the house combine with the windows and sliders to bring the outdoors in, lending a California-ranch aesthetic to the overall style.

Even the dining area has a set of deck-facing sliders, as well as artful twin pendants over the table.

Take a step back into the kitchen to fully appreciate the river view.

The kitchen itself is in a U-shape, with butcher-block counters, a stone-tile floor, stainless-steel appliances, and a mini-glass-block backsplash.

This bedroom on the main level is being used as an office. It has eight (!) skylights and a bay window, along with hardwood floors and neutral, white-painted walls.

The main level also has this bath, with a walk-in shower, high-end fixtures, and stone tiling.


The primary bedroom’s on the lower level, with walls of windows, wall-to-wall carpeting, and a set of sliders…

…out to this private deck…

…which leads to a raised spa.

The primary ensuite bath is extensive in size, with a stone-tile floor, custom-built vanity console, and a walk-in shower tiled in blue-green that’s a real retreat.

It’s got this great soaking tub cleverly placed against a wall of windows overlooking the verdant property.

A third bedroom is being used as a library, with a wall of bookshelves and huge sliders that offer a river view and access to the deck.

The 1,972-square-foot home sits on an acre, close to Nyack’s shops and restaurants and just over a half-hour’s drive to Manhattan.
