Built in 1850, this elegant and bright center hall colonial was originally the family home for an agricultural estate just minutes from the Hudson River - and the wide open public trails just across the road are remnants of the former farmland.
History permeates every inch of this property, and the careful renovations completed by the current owners kept the proportions of the light-filled, generously sized rooms intact while adding addtional living space off of the kitchen.
Located just on the outskirts of the charming hamlet of Cornwall-on-Hudson, the property enjoys easy acccess to Storm King Art Center, the vibrant historic city of Newburgh, and West Point - while still being easily under a 30-minute drive to Beacon, Cold Spring, and an even larger array of dining, shoping, hiking, farmstands, winieries, and more. A roughly 2-minute drive (or walk down a hill in the back) also takes you to a park on the Hudson that's restricted to residents and includes a boat launch.
Having been used partially as a rental property, the home is equally suitable for weekend or full-time usage. Enjoying the rare combination of feeling very rural while still having sidewalks to the little hamlet and schools, this would be an option for a (mostly) car-free lifestyle. The road in front of the home is closed for the winter, reducing the already relatively small number of cars to close to zero.
