1905 English Cottage Hudson Rivertown Hideaway

Favorite
Share
3000+ sq ft 1905 stucco home, English cottage design on .56 acres. Extraordinarily creative vibes—former home of Dorothy DeLay (preeminent violin instructor) and Edward Newhouse (writer for The New Yorker)… their spirits live on! Extremely private despite location on main road in small village. 1813 sandstone church provides screening from the road on property’s western edge; mansion on northern edge (open landscaping and private road between mansion and our house); private school across culvert on southern edge (parking lot and ballfield seen through Rhododendron screening); newer house between our house and Hudson River (seasonal river views). Narrow stone driveway (the sound of vehicles on the stones can take you to another world ;)) leads to property featuring house and large detached two-car garage (used to store antique car collection). Original portion of the home is 2,000 square foot with 1,000+ square foot double height light filled addition (1990). 1905 features: • Lovely exterior arched main door and entry way • Plaster walls (semi-gloss) throughout; glossy white trim; floors in old section of house are old growth heart pine (really nice reddish yellow hue); in new section of house floors are darker brown) • Radiators throughout old house are covered with wood/tin cabinetry • 1970s kitchen w/ linoleum floors, wooden cabinets, Formica countertops, white walls, subzero (a bit of old and new ;)) • Beautiful dining room with two bay windows and window seats • Living room with Travertine and wood mantle fireplace; three sets of French doors leading to brick covered patio (ceiling is floor of one of two upstairs porches—one enclosed, the other open) • Stairs split at lovely window—one leading to hallway; the other to a room we use as an office • Upstairs in old house: three bedrooms (two have porches; one has bay window with window seat and wall of bookshelves); two baths (one bath has very old white porcelain tub and sink with original subway tiles on walls and octagonal tiles on floor) 1990/addition features: • Back downstairs, brick floor “transition” space (home to our elevator and turtle tank ;)) leads to 1990 addition. Elements: o Bedroom (which has wall of bookshelves) o Two terracotta marble bathrooms with spa tub, spa shower, bidet, sink with cabinet (and toilets, of course) o Two walk in closets o Large, light filled “living” room with Hudson River views. This space is double height space with French doors leading onto a small “balcony.”
