A Historic Treasure, circ 1749 stone Dutch colonial was built by freed slaves and located in the desired village of Piermont on the Hudson in New York. This home has been meticulously restored by an award winning historic preservationist using period tools, materials and craftsmanship.
The two feet thick stonewalls keep this home cool in the summer and cozy in the winter. Tiered stonewall leads to a second deck overlooking a pristine view of the classic white church steeple and the calm Sparkill Creek.
