More About This House

Here is a treasure located in the heart of Cornwall on Hudson, just north of New York City, located close to restaurants, shops, the Hudson River Park, award winning Cornwall Schools, mass transit, Storm King Mountain, Skunnemunck Mountain, and hiking trails. This home has been a labor of love, the restoration by the current owners, blending industrial and cottage farm home, using green technology, with repurposinng of original materials. Originally built by Mead & Taft in 1855, the living room, dining room and kitchen are open floor design, accented with exposed brick walls, beautiful original wood floors and post and beam construction. Along with attention to detail, remains the historic barn doors, exterior horse and buggy doors, clover leaf windows, the landmark Sycamore tree used by sailing ships from days gone by. This rare gem even offers a possible mother/daughter, and so much more.
