A very magical Italianate house built in 1918 on 3.9 acres of private park-like land. Featured in Arch Digest this year. There is a large, deep pool. 20 minute walk or quick bike ride to Nyack Village. Beautiful, mature trees, sleeping porches, orangerie, architectural details throughout, new appliances, Hudson River views, walk to the nearby Hester Cason Preserve, Hook Mountain State Park, and Hook Mountain trail. hour to NYC (less w no traffic). A wonderful place to gather with family

The space
This is a magic place on 3.9 acres but close to village and NYC. There are 8 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. Very fast wifi, Whole house water filtration. Very quiet (except for leaf blowing) Birdsong, mature Maple, White Pine, Magnolia, Cryptomeria, Yew, and countless other trees. We keep bees (a beekeeper comes to care for them) Weekly groundskeeping, pool maintenance, and housekeeping. The house has many artworks and designer furniture interlaced with antiques and is often published, most recently in AD. It is 100 years old and as such, takes a tender touch. The staircase and some of the floors creak, sometimes water pressure can be iffy, there is no central A/C, and we use fans. The windows are original and a few of them do not open. There is a big wonderful though unheated pool, and there is a large friendly cat, Kit Kat, who lives here. This is the country near the city, and bugs do get inside from time to time. Birds Can wake you up in the morning. All that being said, it really is lovely. There is nothing Like this anywhere in the area, and we love it, and love to share this space with others. We are a family of four, with 2 girls. We are artists and strategists. Walk to Hiking and biking trails and sailing. Multiple living rooms…a magical place to live and be. The house comes with a cat, the most wonderful cat in the world. He lets himself in and out and does not need a litter box. For those with allergies, Kit Kat can be relegated to a different studio on site, but he will most likely try to insinuate himself into the house so you’d need to keep doors closed. Hope to meet you!
