As a partner in the Beaux-Arts architectural firm McKim, Mead & White, Stanford White designed the Washington Square Arch, the Villard Houses, and the Gould Library, among so many others. He also designed the most private residences of the three men, including this late-19th century, shingly Colonial in Rockland County. Located in the Hudson River-front town of Piermont, the four-bedroom home has a striking semi-circular window, tons of original paneled woodwork and doors, and four beautiful fireplaces. After remaining in the same family for four generations, it’s now up for sale asking $1,275,000.

The four-level home, which has views of the nearby Hudson River and is known as the Taylor House, sits on a half-acre and is a total of 2,900 square feet. There’s a garage, a lovely rear deck, and a large pool.

From the moment you step inside, there’s original woodwork from floor to ceiling. The foyer features a lovely fireplace and is highlighted by the striking staircase, which has two landings and showcases the large semi-circular window above that sites above nine-over-21 window panes.

All throughout are original beadboard walls, inlaid floors, built-ins, and pocket doors.

Off the dining room, there’s a charming sun room.

The kitchen has tons of storage space and a breakfast nook. It opens onto the rear deck.

On the second floor, there are four bedrooms, one of which has an adjacent sunroom. There’s a also a full bathroom off the landing.

The third floor has a storage space, as well as two additional rooms with closets that could also be used as bedrooms.

The lower level has been set up as a family room and a home office. There’s another full bathroom here.

The home is just a five-minute walk from all the shops and restaurants in charming downtown Piermont. The town is just a 20-minute drive from the George Washington Bridge.
