We’re saying a hearty “YAS QUEEN” to this Peekskill Queen Anne in good condition, jam-packed with antique details in every room.
If you’ve got an affinity for antiquities that can only be quenched by being surrounded by them at all times, allow us to introduce you to 403 Simpson Place, situated in the northern Westchester County city of Peekskill, NY. Even the quickest glance at the exterior of this c.1860, 2,550-square-foot Victorian tells a tale of bygone days, where you could sit on the rocking chair front porch while the buggies roll by.
While the world moved onto the horseless carriage, the interior was kept in fine condition, with its original woodwork, intricate parquet floors, and a floor-to-ceiling mirror still in its solid-wood frame.
The large main living room features a mirror-topped mantel with a wood stove insert…
…and the formal dining room includes embossed tin ceilings, built-ins, and stained glass windows.
But, for more casual occasions, meals can take place in the breakfast nook which adjoins the kitchen…
…which has been updated to include stainless steel appliances and a granite center island. Its original fireplace and mantel are still intact, though.
In addition to the home’s three bedrooms (one of which is the master bedroom with two closets), there are two railroad rooms (rooms in a line that you pass through one after the other, much like you would on a passenger train) with a fireplace, balcony, and access to the main bathroom.
The garden beds are already established, so get ready to dig in the dirt once springtime comes back around. Just down the block lies the shores of the Hudson River, along with the Metro-North station.
