Peaceful and bucolic Snedens Landing creative compound on 4+ acres was originally part of Seven Oaks; an historically important, 19th century Gothic Revival estate. For more than 50 years, renowned artist/sculptor Grace Knowlton occupied the former estate barn, which was converted into a residence in 1968 by the architectural firm of Hardy Holtzman Pfeiffer Associates. Their renovation retained the historic feeling of the antique barn with wide plank floors and cathedral beamed ceilings, and added large casement windows throughout to let natural light stream into the house.This beautiful home consists of 4 beds, 3-1/2 baths, and wood burning stoves. Knowlton, in true Snedens tradition, created an artistic compound with artists, potters and sculptors living and working together on this gracious property. In addition to the converted barn residence there is a storybook cottage with two bedrooms and one bath, an industrial-era machine shop with living and studio spaces, a potters studio converted from a former estate outbuilding and wood fired kiln, and a modern studio all beautifully sited on the property s established gardens. Only 22 minutes north of NYC, Snedens Landing is a historic enclave of fewer than 100 houses tucked between Route 9W and the Hudson River, and known for its creative community of writers, artists, and actors. Country living, easy access to the city, and award winning South Orangetown schools.
