This five bedroom downtown gem offers spectacular views of the Hudson River and a unique Rockland County exterior.
Address: 19, rue Catherine, Nyack
The description: Nyack has earned its title of one of the most popular towns in the Hudson Valley for its river views and exciting arts and music scene, but the Victorian-style homes that define the look of the village are what that makes visitors stay.
Nicknamed “Castle in the Sky”, this large five-story property stands out in the city center with its richly designed balconies and exterior embellishments, ensuring the best river views and proximity to all the action of Main Street on a weekend evening.
Although this property was built in 2002, the stately Victorian has both historic and modern elements and mimics the 19th century style of many of its neighbors. The exterior of the house resembles an adult dollhouse, with an aesthetic in equal parts Pixar and Studio Ghibli. The unique tile stands out, a common element in the Victorian style. Tall windows let in natural light, and the curved walls of the protruding tower-like structures create a unique configuration in the interior spaces.
Enjoy the balconies on each floor, perfect for relaxing with a cup of coffee watching the sunrise. The balconies have a unique geometric trim on the side to match the siding of the rest of the house. For more action outdoors, step out onto the fenced back patio or front garden, the latter of which borders the house with shrubs reminiscent of an idyllic English cottage.
Inside the 4,800 square foot property, each bedroom has ample floor space and an intricate hardwood floor design. The first floor living room has a fireplace and is the perfect space to accommodate guests.
The entrance leads into the kitchen with two arched windows leading the way and illuminating the space. A central island is the centerpiece of the kitchen, displaying the modernity of the house. Anyone can feel like a professional chef in this fully-equipped kitchen with all the amenities including a dishwasher, full-size refrigerator, microwave, and state-of-the-art oven.
Settle in for the night in one of the five spacious bedrooms. The main bedroom on the ground floor offers windows all around the curved wall for a unique layout with beautiful lighting. Each bedroom offers guests their own private space for a restful sleep. The showroom lights provide a sophisticated feel to the bedrooms and wood furniture accents are included in the bedrooms. Transform one of the rooms into an office with a city view with a desk in the window for a relaxing working environment.
Each of the three bathrooms is furnished with vintage cabinetry and beautiful tile accents on the bathroom walls. The master bathroom has a French bath feel with fleur de lys accents on the wall. A marble-walled shower with a sliding glass door and soaking tub is included for the perfect bubble bath. Double sinks with marble counter tops give a perfect finish to the master bathroom. The convenience of a double vanity can also be found in the other bathrooms, along with large mirrors and full showers. A state-of-the-art washer and dryer installation is included in the range of amenities offered with the house.
