Located on the east end of town, this sizable structure offers beautiful views of the Hudson and proximity to the Beacon Metro North station, making it ideal for commuters. While many of Beacon's more sizeable properties and plots are located closer to Mount Beacon and further from the bustling center of town, this 1.45 acre home is well within walking distance of Main Street, where gourmet restaurants and eclectic boutiques abound.
While, at just over 5,500 square feet, this Hudson Valley home is certainly of ample size, it bears none of the trademarks of the maligned "McMansion". Instead, it boasts a unique stone exterior and beautiful wooden moldings, hardwood floors, and marble accents throughout.
Despite its rustic charm, the house has been thoroughly updated with modern amenities, including central air conditioning, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops in the kitchen, and a massive pool, complete with its own waterslide. Love cars? This home features a 8-car storage.
