Welcome to Riverview Manor. A classic Hudson Valley estate featuring a gracious and modernized tri-level Victorian home, two-story garage, antique barn, and in-ground pool, on 5 acres of rolling lawns with sweeping river views. You arrive at this bucolic homestead by way of a leafy and secluded driveway amongst an enclave of other waterfront estates. Set on a verdant bluff, with mature trees and plantings, enjoy stunning vistas from vantage points both inside and out.
The stately historic home seamlessly mixes original character and details—like two handsome fireplaces, hardwood floors, and never-painted wainscoting and mouldings—with a long list of updates. Enjoy cleanly-designed bathrooms and recent efficiency upgrades, like improved insulation and new mini splits throughout. Front and back parlors, two staircases, numerous bay windows and a wraparound porch with original ornate woodwork all speak to the grand period style, now imbued with a warm and laidback vibe, perfect for weekend or full-time living. A new owner has room to make their own mark with a kitchen update that, depending on need, could easily expand into the existing sunroom area. The third floor of the house features a large accessory studio with full bathroom, that could be converted back to a rental unit by restoring the kitchen (plumbing hookups still in place). Additional living space might also be created on the second floor of the two-car garage or inside the charming two-level red barn, both of which currently have electric.
A heated in-ground saline swimming pool also enjoys the river view, as does the fire pit close by—perfect for enjoying outdoor movies projected onto the side of the barn—and don’t miss the putting green out on the far end of the grassy lawn! Located just down the road from Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa, with well-known farm-to-table restaurant Henry’s—as well as the Locust Grove Farm & Brewing Co, open on weekends with a rotating lineup of craft beverages and food trucks. Enjoy additional shopping and dining options in Newburgh, New Paltz or Poughkeepsie, each just 20 min away—and the burgeoning scene in nearby Highland (recently featured in the NY Times), with access to the Walkway over the Hudson, just 10 minutes north.
A perfect access point for all the best of the Hudson Valley—yet just 90 minutes by car from Midtown Manhattan and 15 minutes to the MetroNorth station in Poughkeepsie—this is a unique opportunity to land a classic Hudson River estate, with easy access to and from NYC. Dont miss the virtual tour! Listing by MJ Collum.
