Rockland is just full of amazing, interesting, historic houses and this house at 1 Perry Lane in Upper Nyack is one of them. The home had been owned by actress Ellen Burstyn. It sold in July for $2,550,000. Bill Cary will have a story in Living Here next week on a Piermont home once owned by actor William Hurt, and of course, there’s Ding Dong House, owned by a long-list of celebs including Margot Kidder and Uma Thurman. Rosie O’Donnell’s Nyack home is on the market, and so is her former residence, Pretty Penny.
Here’s a shot of Burstyn’s house and the original listing information on the house. To see more photos of 1 Perry Lane, go here
The central portion of this historic home was built in 1805 by John Perry and was expanded by various owners, including Novelist Ben Hecht who added North and South wings, a Greenhouse, a charming stone Writer’s Cottage designed by Henry Varnum Poor and an Adirondack style Guest Cottage. Restored by the current owner, the main house has retained its original integrity and has added touches such as a glass enclosed Sunroom off the Kitchen and Dining Room along with a spacious deck off the living room, a new staircase with hand-carved details and a gym. Outdoors, the 1.1 acre waterfront property is breathtaking with terraced gardens and a heated pool and whirlpool spa. Simply beautiful.
