Location: Palisades, New York

Price: $925,000

A charming house is on the market in Snedens Landing, a quaint enclave in the Hudson River Palisades in Orange, New York. Home to artists and celebrities like Bill Murray and (formerly) Diane Sawyer, the secluded neighborhood is located just 12 miles north of Manhattan’s George Washington Bridge, making it an ideal place to live for commuters.

The 1,400-square-foot residence in question was built in 1854 and named after Henry Dobbs, a Hudson River boat captain. Carefully restored and updated over the years, the two-bedroom-two-bath features a plethora of original and otherwise historic details, including three wood-burning fireplaces, original wide-plank oak floors, stone and clapboard walls, beamed ceilings, ship lap, original panel doors with broad moldings, “six over six” sash windows, and built-in bookshelves, just to name a few.

Situated on .33 acres, the Dobbs House also boasts many delightful outdoor living opportunities, including double porches, a terraced, two-level yard with lawn and stone patios, and stacked stone walls. There’s also a garage with a detached studio. And, of course, views of the Hudson River. Located at 63 Washington Spring Road, the property is offered at $925,000. Have a look.
