We are currently offering 2019 West Point Graduation and may be able to offer the first three weeks of August, 2018. If you have other dates in mind, please inquire. If you need more than five bedrooms, we may also be able to offer 1-2 bedrooms on the third floor (currently we plan to use those to store our stuff) and/or
our charming 2 rooms garage apartment. But we are looking for a large family or a few families, not big events or parties. Thanks!
Built in 1928 as the main house on a large family estate, this Georgian brick colonial is beautifully decorated, but comfortable and great for a large family group or two families. It's a 30 minute drive to both West Point and the George Washington Bridge. Popular Rockland County day camps are nearby and an equestrian center is 1 mile away.
The property is on five acres at the end of a long shared drive and sits right on the edge of 50,000 acre Harriman State Park. The patio overlooks a stream, the front porch runs the entire length of the house, and the newly-renovated four season sun porch in the back is great for dining or hanging out. The immediate back yard is level, has a small fish pond, and is surrounded pretty sloping woodlands, with views of the hills above.
You can hike right from the back door. Options include an easy, miles-long path for walking or running or more challenging hiking in the hills above the house. A 20 minute hike leads to open views of the NYC skyline and it's a 50 minute hike to a gorgeous lake. A drive into the park brings even more options, such as swimming, boating and fishing.
The first floor has a large, renovated kitchen with a 6 seat kitchen table and a large island with stools. The family room has a TV and a fire place, and the large, more formal living room can accommodate a big group easily, and also has a fireplace and six French doors.
For dining options, the table in the four season sun porch seats 8 (and can be expanded to 14 with a folding table). The kitchen table seats 6, and the table out on the patio by the stream seats 8 (and can also be expanded with folding tables).
The second floor has five bedrooms, four with queen beds and one with a full sized bed. All five have full en suite bathrooms. The master has a huge renovated bathroom.
The basement has a large, recently renovated area, with a bar, TV, and sitting area. There is also a treadmill.
The property also has a pretty old stone garage about 130 feet away from the house. Year round, we separately rent out a renovated, two room apartment in the garage. It can fit a couple, or a couple with 1-2 kids. If you want complete privacy and/or more capacity, inquire about renting this unit for an additional charge. If you don't rent it, we or our daughter may stay there, or we may rent it out.
We haven't rented out the main house before, but if you want to see reviews that speak to our hosting, see our other property, listing 378 3517. If you want to see reviews that speak to the setting of this property, check out the garage apartment listing - 412 8981.
