This 1920s stone house couldn’t come with a much better location: built into the cliffs of the Palisades, with sweeping views of the Hudson River. This two-acre property is located at 61 Woods Road in the upstate town of Orangetown, and has just hit the market for $4.6 million. The home boasts long stone terraces that face the water, stone steps that lead to the lower-level lawn, built into the rock face, and a charming guest cottage. The stunning property was also once home to Diane Sawyer and the late Mike Nichols.
This property was originally built by the Tonetti family, who were founders of the Snedens Landing Art Colony, an important arts movement in the Hudson River Valley.
The stone home holds three bedrooms and 3,108 square feet. Inside, it’s plenty rustic, with brick and wide board pine floors, numerous hand hewn beams and four fireplaces.
From a set of French doors in the living and dining rooms, long stone terraces lead you toward views of the Hudson. Talk about stunning outdoor dining!
Some incredible carved woodwork remains in tact; this door leads to the home’s library.
Carved wooden doors also lead to the kitchen, which has been upgraded but still maintains a rustic feel.
Views are stunning from the master bedroom, too.
This property also includes a swimming pool, garden, great lawn, and a small guest cottage. The listing compares it to a French estate, but in actuality it’s a 25 minute drive into Manhattan. If you’re going to escape the city to go anywhere, it’s not getting much better than this.
