Description

An hour and a half away from New York City in Patterson, NY the impact and history from four centuries, 1700s to 2000s are woven together in this pristine Greek revival mansion. Blending and blurring modern and the stateliest of the golden age, creating a place to disengage but stay connected with security, comfort, and convenience. Set on close to 3 acres with walking distance to the Patterson Metro North train station and the quaint town center.

4,716 SF main estate with 12 rooms, 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths and 2 half baths. Documentation from the Patterson Historical Society date the home as far back as 1770.  In 2016 the current owner undertook a major renovation of the entire property.

It is a unique experience to enter the home and feel the old and new so masterfully entwined. The craftsmanship in the details of the main estate has been impeccably maintained to create a stepping-back-in-time feeling. While the place emotes being in the past, the latest technology underlies. For example, the roof, you may not have noticed in the photos, is a Tesla solar installation. High speed CAT6 ethernet is everywhere in the house. A state-of-the-art Crestron home automation system puts control of the HVAC system, security cameras, alarm and even pool heat at your fingertips on touch screens throughout the home.

With 4,716 SF, there is room for everyone to enjoy privacy while working or studying. In fact, there are three separate parlors on the first floor, along with a solarium, the top-notch kitchen, two dining rooms and a powder room. Upstairs are four bedrooms, two full baths, French doors to an exterior balcony, bonus room with a powder room and a back staircase that leads down to the kitchen.

As a bonus, there is a third-floor walk-up attic with dramatic peaked roof lines and a full unfinished basement. Both allowing for future finishing.

The 24 x 48 heated in-ground gunite pool overlooks a large, naturalized garden with thousands of locally sourced native plants with stone paths winding throughout. Expansive lawns, elegant fencing and tall arbor vitae edge the parcel.

The carriage house adds another 2 bedrooms and a full bath with 1,027 SF of living space over two floors. Perfect for a caretaker or income producing rental. The carriage house is attached to a classic red barn with two bays for parking, adjacent to another 1 1/2 story barn.

Located in the Town of Patterson (named after the original owner of the property, Matthew Paterson). The spelling was changed to its current spelling in the mid-19th century because of continuing confusion in the mail system with Paterson, New Jersey. Several members of the Paterson family lived in the home until the early 20th century. Thus, it was one of the few properties to remain in the same family for almost a century and a half. The Seeger family purchased the home and generations including Pete Seeger, an American folk artist, spent his youthful years at the home. To date, the current owner is only the 7th family to live at this residence.
