Treetops, an exclusive, 19th Century, Second Empire Estate, with pool, 3 story red barn (with apartment and 3+ car garage), and located on 7.5 acres, which can be sub-divided, next to Snedens Landing, and across from a 400 acre Hudson River park. The historic riverfront village of Piermont is a short walk. The home offers a perfect space to entertain friends and family, or take a respite from the urban lifestyle. From its fabulous veranda in the front overlooking a truly 'great lawn', with a border of trees on all sides and specimen plantings, to its romantic styling and secluded setting off a private lane. You feel you've arrived instantly, as you go past its stone entrance piers and iron gates. Treetop's mansard roof is the epitome of classic Second Empire style. Outstanding period details include wide plaster moldings, high ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, mahogany handrail, 4 panel doors, 8 fireplaces, a glamorous principal bedroom suite, private third floor, 2 staircases, brick lined interior wall under the wood siding (to provide better insulation in heat and cold) and marble fireplace mantels define the home. The property and home have a comfortable feeling of a gracious time 100 years ago; like something you may find in the south - definitely it doesn't feel like you're anywhere near NYC once you step onto its grounds, yet NYC is only 30 minutes away. Treetops started its life as a gentleman's farm, for the first president of Cunard lines in the 1850s, and was used as a secondary home for a New Yorker. Other grand homes on this street help define the setting. They include extraordinary Greek Revivals, stone manor houses, as well as other classic, 19th century homes. Enter through the original double wide, decorative doors, to a wide entry hall, with a den on one side and large living room on the other, and through 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. Principal bedroom and bath is elaborate and is located on the second floor, along with 2 additional bedrooms and bath. Third floor offers a large great room, 3 additional bedrooms and large bath. Lower level offers another bedroom or den with marble fireplace and large laundry room and mechanical space. 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. The legend, the mystic, can be yours. Treetops.
