"The Big House", one of the oldest homes in the country and on the National Register of Historic Homes, located in Snedens Landing. Twenty five minutes to NYC. Beautifully restored and historically significant circa 1738 English Manor House with unusually tall ceilings for its age. George Washington met General Lafayette at property during the Revolutionary War; and Martha Washington separately visited enroute to meet her husband. Snedens Landing had much historical significance during the war. Significant period details include massive ceiling beams, important 18th century white pine paneling in living rm, period cabinetry in dining room, and wide board floors. Kitchen wing possibly dates to 1685 and features old style fireplace and "garret" which was original sleeping loft. Built of local field stone with 23" thick walls. A national treasure. A trophy home for connoisseurs of early American history or anyone who loves unique style! Land owned by first mayor of New York, William Merritt. Extraordinary!
