Near a cliffside overlooking the Hudson River, a Colonial-style home is on the market for $1.695 million. The property at 57 Tweed Boulevard is located just south of Nyack, a village in the Hudson Valley about 20 miles from New York City. Surrounded by wooded state parks, mountains, and water, the home’s two-story turret-like watchtower is perfect for taking in all of those scenic views.

Dubbed “The Lodge” in the listing, the shingle-style home contains four bedrooms and three and a half baths. The property sits on about a half-acre and boasts a lush front and back yard, as well as a long driveway.

Classic columned porches can be found at the front and rear of the home, with the latter overlooking the expansive lawn, stone patio, and the river.

Inside a central staircase divides two front sitting rooms, one with a wood-burning fireplace, drenched in natural light. Hardwood floors, French doors, and custom woodwork can be found throughout the home.

The country-style kitchen features a tin ceiling, a large center island, and radiant heated bluestone floors. There’s also a spacious pantry. In the next room over, a bright dining room has floor-to-ceiling windows, a catty-cornered fireplace, and access to the back porch.

One of the most unique features of the home is its two-story turret-like watchtower. Accessible via the master bedroom, the small open-air tower has space for a table and chairs and offers near-panoramic views of the Hudson River, the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, and surrounding landscape, allowing for views of “the barges and ships go up and down” the river, according to the listing.

The master suite features a fireplace and a spacious bathroom with boast a standing shower and windowed soaking tub. The remaining bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors.

The Lodge is minutes from Blauvelt State Park, home to 590 acres and plenty of hiking trails, and the Tallman Mountain State Park, a 700-acre wooded park that stretches along the Hudson River. And the property is just a 35-minute drive to New York City.
