I love a glorious mansion or estate as much as the next person — violin shaped pool in Bedford? Can’t stop looking at it! But just like the next person, I really can’t afford any of the places I swoon about, but it’s just fun to look. One house I really love this week is this compact yellow cottage, right on the Hudson River in South Nyack. No 20 + rooms to clean or furnish. No over-the-top master bathroom with chandeliers, this house is compact, simply decorated and best of all, has Hudson River access and an adorable boat house. It was listed for $799,000 and according to broker Richard Ellis, a sale is pending. Lucky owners! Take a look:
Here are the property details from Ellis’ website: Hudson riverfront cottage, fully renovated with separate boathouse/studio and 60 ft dock, located on wide sandy beach. Home features architectual details and river views from most rooms. Features great room with exposed brick wall and large deck to the Hudson River. Chef’s kitchen with double SubZero and large Wolf stove and marble floors. Open den with built-ins on 2nd floor between bedrooms; master bedroom with deck. Stylish/new baths, wood floors throughout and large walk out basement leads to secret garden between house and boathouse/studio. This building includes a 300+ sqft room with half bath and balcony on the river; also has lower level workshop that opens to the dock and beach.
Honestly, I could probably live in the boathouse! Got a favorite house you want to tell us about? Leave a comment.
