Just 50 miles from New York City in the beautiful Hudson Valley Saxton Hall is a 17-room fully restored house.

Six huge Corinthian columns line its front porch. Inside, a grand center hallway with a uniquely patterned wood inlay floor and a mahogany pier mirror welcome you. On either side of the center hallway, classically proportioned rooms with 12-foot ceilings, marble fireplaces and plaster friezes of grapes and arbors reflect the house’s high level of craftsmanship.

Original pocket doors separate the library, with its built-in bookshelves, from the music room, where French doors open onto the main porch. A formal dining room and parlor, separated by pocket doors with elaborately etched glass, complete the quartet of four symmetrical rooms on the first floor.  The kitchen, with stainless steel appliances and granite counters, was renovated in 2001.

On the second floor, there are four bedrooms, two with fireplaces and each with a glass transom above the door, and two full baths. The third floor, whose ceilings slope near the outer edges of each room, offers three bedrooms and another full bath. The room in the rooftop cupola provides a 360-degree view of the Hudson river and Storm King Mountain state park. The current owners have added many updates, including energy efficient heat/air pumps in all main rooms. A post-and-beam two-story barn was constructed in 2005 and perennial and vegetable gardens are spread over the 1.9 acre lot. Situated in the charming village of Cornwall-on-Hudson, named as one of the “Best Places to Live in the Hudson Valley in 2013” by Hudson Valley Magazine.
