A six-bedroom Queen Anne Victorian in Upper Nyack has hit the market for $5.2 million (h/t Curbed). Although the 1887 residence, known as the Bennett-Deyrup House, underwent a major $4 million renovation 10 years ago, many of its historic details–like embossed “lincrusta” ceilings and walls, stained glass windows and tile glass–remain. Just a quick, 30-minutes outside New York City, the home sits on the Hudson River and includes its own rocky beach and stoned pier.
The home’s history lies with its former residents, as it was originally built for the U.S. Consul to Bogota, J.A. Bennett. It was later home to the co-founder of the New School of Social Research, Alvin Johnson-Deyrup, and his family for most of the 20th century.
While the 7,049-square-foot home was totally gutted and rebuilt, the original materials were preserved and then restored.
An eat-in dining area sits adjacent to the spacious gourmet kitchen. Victorian features are seen in the home’s embossed ceilings and walls, the whopping eight fireplaces and four decorative stone mantels. Amenities include a high-tech security and entertainment system, a central vacuum and a patio.
There are six bedrooms, including a master with an adjacent sitting area, and five full baths.
The sprawling outdoor patio features plenty of space to entertain, as well as incredible views of the Hudson River. The private rocky beach and stone pier complete this upstate oasis.
