Location and Privacy
There is a saying:
"The three things which make a piece of property desirable are:
Location, Location and Location".
The property is located on top of the hill, bordering the Hudson National Golf Course. At the end of the street you enter a long private driveway leading to the house where "the world ends" with an ambiance of you have arrived".
The perfect Southern orientation of the house takes full command of the views high above the widest part of the Hudson River.
Within minutes you are in the village of Croton-on-Hudson, the Croton-Harmon Railroad Station with 45 minute Express-Trains to Midtown New York City, major highways and the newest deep water marina on the Eastern shore of the Hudson River just 5 minutes away:
The Half-Moon-Bay Yacht Club.
Custom Built Home
The one-of-a-kind Contemporary
was constructed in 1972 with total orientation towards the view.
With the exception of one of the bedrooms and the playroom, each and every room has a view of the Hudson.
Due to the Southern orientation and expansive use of glass, the house benefits greatly from solar heat to keep it warm in the winter.
To stay cool in the Summer, every sliding door and window has custom shades, which is aided by cool breezes due to its high, exposed location above the river.
The brand new, super efficient oil/hot water heating system has eight heating zones to allow for total comfort. The house has three separate central A/C systems with electronic thermostats, which can be controlled via phone or Internet.
The white stucco exterior walls and brand new red roof enhance the long stretched look of the house as you approach on the circular driveway.
A two car garage on the left side, perfectly blending into the style of the house, is connected to the kitchen by a covered breezeway with a large skylight. The surprising secret of the garage is the custom-built interior to house a hydraulic lift, which allows a third car inside.
Also a large storage attic has been gained with this installation.
Before we go inside, you want to go out onto the enormous deck
(1,200 s/f) on the Southern side of the house. The entire deck has been redone (approx. $40,000), with all new lumber, the joists spaced at 12, and beautiful, maintenance-free Timbertec planking.
To take full command of the view, custom aluminum and glass railing was brought in from Canada, which gives the deck a clean, contemporary flair.
The deck is connected by new Marvin sliding doors to the kitchen, the dining room, the living room and the master bedroom, which has its own private elevated area of the deck.
The deck is where you have your meals in the summer.
The view from here is what the house is all about.
Between the kitchen and the deck is an inside and outside brick BBQ-pit built into one of the chimneys of the house, each with its own flue.
Here is a tour of the house: Oak Floors on Main and Upper Level
MAIN LEVEL (2,660 s/f)
The Main Entrance opens to a large ceramic tiled entrance hall
where you immediately notice the elaborate use of stone and oak woodwork.
A stairway, built into the back of the fireplace, leads to the upper level.
A custom wet bar is to the left as well as a brand new marble tiled powder room.
The Living Room (18x22) with cathedral ceiling has a 16' x 16' window wall facing the river and an enormous stone fireplace.
Two large sliding doors connect the living room to the deck.
The entire window wall can be darkened by custom electric shades, which allows for watching your favorite game during bright sunlight.
The Dining Room (14x17) with an elaborate oak ceiling has a beautiful large corner window and sliding door to deck. It is open to the living room, creating a large, bright space.
The Kitchen (12x16) has a side entrance from the garage and breezeway. Large windows over the sink and on the opposite side, plus a sliding door to the deck, make this a very bright, inviting space.
The layout includes a breakfast area with a large picture window framing the view for miles down the river. The custom oak cabinets and large counter tops blend nicely with the rustic look of the wood ceilings in the adjacent entrance hallway and dining room. Numerous cabinets and a large pantry allow for plenty of storage.
The Bedroom Wing is on the opposite end of the house, with the master suite raised another 2 steps to allow for an even better view of the river.
The Master Bedroom (14x16) has cathedral ceiling, a large window
overlooking the river and a sliding door to its private raised deck,
leading to the main deck.
The Master Bathroom (8x14) has four skylights (two with remote openers and rain sensors), floor heat, double sinks, a custom glass shower and a large sunken whirlpool tub. A very large bay-window commands a stunning river view while you are soaking in the tub.
Custom cabinets provide lots of storage.
The 2nd Bedroom (12x16) has a sliding door to a private balcony overlooking the river.
The large 3rd Bedroom (11x18) has a bay window towards the side of the house and a walk-in closet.
Hall Bath (8x8) completely remodeled, has a tub and beautiful frame-less glass shower.
UPPER LEVEL (550s/f)
A Large Studio/Loft is reached via stairs opposite the main entrance. It has a sliding door to its own balcony. Again the room is oriented for a panoramic view of the river.
A large balcony overlooking the living room forms the library with custom built book shelves.
A beautiful stone fireplace makes this one of the favorite hiding places of the house. Two new opening skylights bring air and light to the loft.
LOWER LEVEL (2,845 s/f)
This level spans the entire footprint of the house. While there are stairs down from the bedroom wing, it has a separate private entrance, making the finished part of the basement (1,300 s/f) a perfect mother/daughter or maid setup. It consists of the following rooms:
4th Bedroom (12x12) with windows toward the river
3rd Bathroom (7x9) completely remodeled
The Family Room (15x22) has a beautiful brick fireplace, a bar and large windows.
A sliding door leads to a 6-person hot-tub for the winter (has not been used for a number of years and could be removed) and the walkway to the pool and the grounds.
The Recreation Room (19x22) is ideal for a pool table, ping-pong or exercise equipment. The existing pool table and the table tennis tops fitting on top of the table can stay with the house.
A large walk-in cedar closet is located next to the recreation room.
The Bonus Room (9x13) is an inside room, could be used as a 5th bedroom or storage.
The Laundry Room (8x11) is on the same level and has room for a freezer or additional refrigerator.
The unfinished part of the lower level (1,285 s/f) houses the heating unit and hot water heater (both new) and has a large shop with a window to grounds and separate entrance.
It offers lots of storage and easily holds all your pool and outdoor furniture during the Winter months.
A separate unfinished room (located under the breezeway between the garage and the kitchen) is suitable for a sauna or wine cellar.
The Custom Freeform 25 x 50' Pool
is one of the largest residential pools in the area. It has an attached 4 x 6 foot whirlpool.
Both are heated with Propane (500 gal underground tank). All pool and whirlpool functions are controlled by an electronic control module located inside the house. The enormous area surrounding the pool consists of custom landscaping with large Pennsylvania Blue Stone patios, steps, plus beautiful natural rock formations.
The Tennis Court (totally redone in 2004)
can be reached through a path from the pool or via a brand new curved staircase from the driveway.
A large, new flagstone patio next to the court with a water cooler allows for your fan-club to watch and stay cool.
The court has a floodlight system controlled from the garage, which is great for a late-night match.
B]There are lots of other desirable features offered with this property, which will become apparent after living in this very comfortable house.
