In an unparalleled location on the Hudson River just opposite the southern end of the Vanderbilt property (with clear views of the mansion), this expanded estate villa perched high on solid rock has direct access to the river with over 300 feet of frontage and deep water mooring history. There is no train. From the formal entrance by the fountain, a large foyer opens into the living room and the first of many views of the river from the house. In fact, breathtaking views from all the major rooms, as well as from the inground pool patio and pergola, encompass miles of the river both north and south. Vaulted and beamed ceilings expand the interior space. Lighting in many rooms has scene programming and sensors to turn everything off. In the much used 50-foot combined kitchen-family room, luxury appliances serve every need: 6-burner gas range (grill, griddle, double ovens), warming and steaming drawers, full refrigerator/freezer in pantry, refrigerator drawers, dishwasher drawers and three copper farmhouse sinks. Several family dining areas in the room and a dining porch outside overlooking the river offer many choices. Between kitchen and dining room, a game room also serves as wet bar and perfect buffet when opening the house to entertain. The master suite occupies its own wing on the main floor featuring a river balcony and double-fireplace (with master bath) plus two spacious walk-in closets. The master rain shower incorporates steam, aroma, and chromatherapies, and internet music/radio. Above the jetted tub a waterfall acts as air filter and beyond there is a private gym with sauna. Other areas of the house include three bedrooms (and alarmed window screens), den, bath plus inlaw suite with kitchenette on lower level and a two-bedroom guest suite with one and a half baths, small kitchen above the garage. There is a loft office and top floor observatory. And with all of these features, sophisticated mechanicals and infrastructure, including solar panels, keep electric and natural gas utility bills under $5000 per year. The property is entirely fenced with stone pillars around an automated iron gate at the entrance. At the river, 200 feet of riparian rights extend the frontage, including between low and high water marks. The old concrete dock foundation, used by the yacht repairman who once owned the property, can once again support a retractable suspension dock out into the water. These are the highlights. A buyer can be assured that attention has been given to maximizing the use and enjoyment of every aspect of this very fine property.
