"WESTWIND" - Sweeping river views just begin to describe this grand 1790's "Carpenter Gothic" Victorian with expansive additions throughout the 1800's. Sitting on 1.4 acres with specimen trees, hundreds of perennials, filled with exquisite detail you couldn't duplicate today. Featured in numerous publications and historic home tours, "Westwind" had many famous owners from Captain Appleton of the Cunard Steamship Line, to well-known writers for The New Yorker. Eleven rooms (4-5 bedrooms) with 3 fireplaces, which 2 are decorative at the moment, showcase the original details, all restored and modernized in the 2000's. Numerous period details throughout include leaded glass built-in cupboards, marble and limestone fireplaces, French doors, marble sink and the most ornate gingerbread trim. Renovated chef's kitchen with AGA stove leads to the formal dining room with original built-ins. Grand living room with exquisite fireplace and walls of windows to the Hudson River. Upstairs master suite with private sitting room and custom bath, plus an additional breathtaking bath featuring a clawfoot tub with striking views of the river. Magnificent wrap around porch to watch the sunsets in the front, a second porch to the rear, stone patio with fountain, underground root cellar, river access easement, and award-winning South Orangetown Schools complete the package. Room for a pool with direct access to the nature trail, just minutes to Piermont and Nyack's riverfront villages and an easy 25 minute drive to New York City.
