Location: Orangetown, NY
Once home to Diane Sawyer and the late Mike Nichols (according to the listing), this rustic 1920s stone house offers picturesque provincial French living just outside of New York City. Set into the majestic cliffs of the Palisades, the three-bedroom, 3,108-square-foot historic charmer was built by the Tonetti family, founders of the Snedens Landing Art Colony, an important arts movement in the Hudson River Valley.
Indeed, the home, which is located 25 minutes from midtown Manhattan in Orangetown, New York, boasts unobstructed views of the river, which can be enjoyed from the terraces running along outside the living and dining rooms. The private two-acre property also includes a swimming pool, garden, great lawn, and a small guest cottage (tiny house!). The outside window frames painted in a lovely vibrant blue add just the right touch of whimsy.
Inside, rough "hand hewn" beams line the ceilings, brick and wide-plank floors line the floors, and white plaster and brick make up the walls. Antique doors and room partitions are found throughout. Still, modern updates in the spacious chef’s kitchen (which is outfitted with the latest appliances) and the marble-accented bathroom provide a bit of luxury. Located at 61 Woods road, it’s asking $4,600,000. Have a look below.
