Description

A long driveway off a private road leads to the magnificent Niederhurst. A luxurious, late 19th Century country estate on 13 acres overlooking the Hudson River, reimagined for the 21st century by Architectural Digest's Top 100 designer/owner Sara Story, as featured in A.D. October 2016. The home is an extraordinary residence for those who seek exceptional style, provenance and location. It was built during the Gilded Age, when romantic homes were built on bluffs, overlooking the river, mimicking the great European estates overlooking the Rhine. Niederhurst's parklike features, such as imported copper beech trees from England, planted by Gilman in the 1870s, still dominate the landscape today. The property's Fern Lodge, built in 1866 and The Stable, built in the 1870s, are additional structures on the property. In addition, there are several out buildings: a stone shed, an small observatory converted to a cote (for birds), an antique barn and shed. The interior of the home reflects historic details with modern flair. There's an energy and symmetry between design and function, walking through the house. Is it modern or old world? You decide. Highlights include original plaster medallions, brickwork and moldings infused with the addition of hand-troweled Venetian plaster walls, oak millwork and wide-plank, light oak flooring to brighten the interior. Materials include Pannozzo marble from Italy in the master bath and Nero Marquina with blue de Savoie and Calcutta marbles in the gallery floor that create a grand yet inviting space. The renovation of the home took five years. Niederhurst has only had three owners in 150 years. The current owners reunited/purchased the original cottage and stable that were on the property when Niederhurst was built, as well as an additional 4.5-acre parcel overlooking the river - that was also part of the original estate. This is the first time ever Niederhurst is being offered with all three structures, as it was from 1874 to 1955. The property is comprised of three separate lots. Niederhurst was constructed by Winthrop Gilman Jr., a notable NYC banker and architect who built the home and contributed greatly to the community where he raised his family. He built the first schoolhouse, church, library and served as the first historian for the Snedens Landing, recording stories from the 18th century, and inspired others to do the same in later years. His passion was always to give back to his community. Snedens Landing is known for its rustic seclusion, proximity to Manhattan and notable residents, both past and present. The Hudson River and the Snedens Landing Tennis Association court are a short walk from the home and there are about 3,000 acres of hiking trails within walking distance. The historic riverfront village of Piermont with its many restaurants, shops and marinas is only a five minute drive. Snedens Landing is a neighborhood in Palisades. It is surrounded by the Hudson River on the east, thousands of acres of parkland on the north (Tallman State Park) and south (Columbia University Lamont Observatory & Palisades Interstate Park). Snedens Landing is the first community on the west bank of the Hudson River, north of the G.W. Bridge. It consists of about 100 homes and there is only one road into the community. It's a great "walking" neighborhood. Niederhurst is a perfect weekend home or forever home. Manhattan is only 30 minutes away. Nothing Compares.
