Treetops, an exclusive, 19th Century, Second Empire estate, with pool, 3 story red barn (was apartment and 3+ car garage; many options), and located on 7.5 acres, which can be sub-divided, and is next to Snedens Landing, adjoining a 687 acres Hudson River park. The home offers a perfect space to entertain friends and family, or take a respite from the urban lifestyle. From its fabulous veranda overlooking a truly "great lawn", bordered by trees on all sides and specimen plantings, to its romantic styling and secluded setting off a private lane. You feel you're in a special place, as you go past its stone entrance piers & iron gates. Outstanding period details include wide plaster moldings, high ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, mahogany handrails on grand staircase, 4 panel doors, 8 fireplaces, a glamorous principal bedroom suite, private third floor accessed by main & back staircase; brick lined interior wall under the wood siding (to provide better insulation in heat and cold) and period marble fireplace mantels define the home. The property and home have a comfortable feeling of a gracious time one and a half centuries ago! Treetops is like an ornate home you may find in the south - definitely it doesn't feel like you're anywhere near NYC, yet it's only 30 minutes away. Treetops started its life as a gentleman's farm, and was a weekend home for the president of Cunard lines. Other grand homes in the immediate area, help define the setting. They include extraordinary Greek Revivals, Stone manor houses, as well as other classic, 19th century homes. Enter through the original, carved, decorative doors, to a wide entry hall, with den on one side and large living room on the other, and thru pocket doors, leading to a formal dining room with a period floor to ceiling bay window. The country kitchen offers a brick fireplace and cozy sitting and dining area and leads to a beautiful back porch overlooking a forest of trees and the swimming pool in the distance. Principal bedroom and bath is elaborate, very large rooms for the period, and are located on the second floor, along with two additional bedrooms and bath. Third floor offers a large great room, 3 additional bedrooms and large bath. Lower level offers another two rooms with marble fireplace mantels, including laundry room. An additional door off this level leads to the rear yard. Treetops is the home of award-winning perfume bottle designer, Marc Rosen, and his late wife, legendary actress, Arlene Dahl. It's where Hollywood stars, such as Joan Collins, Liza Minnelli, Joan Rivers, Helen Hayes, Ginger Rogers and many more, wined and dined through the years. Treetops has a storied past, just like its many former owners and guests. This alluring lifestyle can now be your's. Treetops.
