It’s hard not to crush on this Upstate Victorian, perfectly preserved since its construction in 1879 (h/t CIRCA). Located at 21 Curry Lane in New Hyde, both the architecture and location impress: the white house, with its original slate roof and wraparound porch, sits on a hill overlooking the Hudson River. It’s a 15- minute drive to the Metro North station in Poughkeepsie for city dwellers, and it’s $785,000 price tag is quite impressive.
A circular driveway leads up to the dreamy wraparound porch, which looks out over water, trees and hills. The home is within walking distance to the Hudson River and Vanderbilt Estate, as well as restaurants, a post office and library in town. (It’s not New York City level entertainment, but you won’t get a house like this in NYC for $785K!)
The interior is as well preserved as the exterior, with the original marble fireplaces, plaster crown moldings and crystal chandeliers.
Floor-to-ceiling windows with French doors–boasting the original antique glass frame–frame the living and dining rooms. Both spaces have incredible views of the surrounding property.
A light-drenched sunroom was added to the historic structure, and comes with direct access to porch.
Talk about a country kitchen! It’s been upgraded with new appliances and ample cabinetry, according to the listing.
The second floor has a master bedroom with views toward the river, a full bathroom and two additional bedrooms. You could even built your own artist loft: there’s a cozy, semi-finished attic with its own heat, river views and library. Be sure to check the gallery for more photos of this idyllic upstate retreat.
