Indulge in the Details that Come with this Nyack, NY Second Empire Victorian, $868K

Built in 1868, this Nyack Second Empire Victorian is a class act…

And, you might melt your brain trying to take in all the cool details inherent in it. Right off the bat, the exterior presents as a sunny, elegant Second Empire (note the mansard roof and dormer windows, typical of the Second Empire Victorian style) with columned front porch and arched double front Mahogany doors.

Set inside and marvel at the zebra-striped wood floors, soaring ceilings with fixture medallions, curvy main staircase with hand-hewn banister, floor-to-ceiling windows…there’s almost too much to enumerate, so we’ll let some pictures tell the tale.

The good stuff doesn’t stop in the living room and adjoining dining room. In the kitchen, you won’t want for gear with Viking range, Sub-Zero fridge, radiant tile floors, and pantry.

The 2,378-square-foot interior comes with four generously-proportioned bedrooms with arched, recessed windows and plenty of them, filling each space with light.

Curious about the tower room? Who wouldn’t be? Here it is…

The back porch overlooks the quarter-acre property, which is growing heirloom roses, lilacs, magnolias, varietal hydrangeas, smoke-bush, and mature evergreens. Enjoy it from the slate patio under the shade.


Situated in the village of Nyack in Rockland County, on the other side of the river from Tarrytown, Westchester County via the Tappan Zee. Have you been to Nyack? We love this charming Hudson River town (and we’re not afraid to crow about it) filled with well-maintained older homes like this one, and it’s highly-walkable with great food, shops, and a riverfront trail and park.
