This gorgeous home is one of the many historic stunners in Beacon. It was built during a wave of beautiful buildings that went up in the nineteenth century Beacon and remain here today.
The charm and detail in this house is unmatched. The thick swirl in the staircase banner, the wide doors, the outdoor porches built into the house for easy living next to the mountain synonymous with the town it overlooks. Across the street from this house, your porch doors open wide to Mount Beacon - the view is all yours.
Speaking of the outside, there is an overgrown basketball court in a corner of the front yard, in case you desired a surface for a little tennis, ball playing or bike riding.
Normally we don’t include how many fireplaces are in a home, but this home is an exception with four hearty fireplaces. This house was designed for family living, with a full kitchen downstairs, and a kitchenette with sink upstairs, making it a perfect setup for a stately office, in-law suite, or other guest accommodations. The suite upstairs has a balcony with french doors opening to face the Hudson River.
Located in the foothills of Mount Beacon on just under a half-acre, serenity exists in this mountain neighborhood. The welcoming stone path from the driveway to the house increases the warm touch of this home. You are also within walking distance of famed Bob’s Corner Store for breakfast sandwiches, and to Scenic Hudson’s recently renovated entry climb Mount Beacon for a brisk hike. Walking to downtown Beacon is also easy from this home with incredible mountain views.
Original charm has been restored to this house that goes back as far as 1867 at least, according to The 1867 Atlas, which was a series of maps produced back then to document properties. In addition to the four fireplaces, the home does have central air and cooling. There are plenty of breakfast nooks to dine in, with an open kitchen. Bathrooms outnumber the fireplaces, with several options for showers, including a walk-in shower for easy accessibility, and a claw-foot bathtub for high-class decoration.
