Property Description

"BENNETT-DEYRUP ESTATE" [1887] Featured on the Christmas Eve cover of "Rockland County Journal" as one of the Hudson Valley's most artistic residences (see attached). [1919] "One day I saw as small an advertisement as will run in a newspaper: 'Gentlemen's estate on the Hudson.' It had been my dream to live by a river. I called up the agent. The house was in Nyack, the town of all towns that most attracted me. I took the first train to my place in White Plains, packed my family into the car, and drove over to look at the house. It was big and in bad repair, of Norman architecture; there were three acres of grounds running down to the river with grass so tall that my children, running through it, were just progressive waves in the grass. There I have lived since 1919... we have noble trees of our own planting, and gardens and gardens, violets and daffodils and hyacinths, tulips and peonies, roses and roses and roses, and lilies, chrysanthemums, and all the wealth of the westering year. There we are at home." -Alvin Johnson. [2021] Now, after a painstaking $4,000,000 renovation of every detail masterfully preserved and restored, welcome to one of the most breathtaking properties in New York State. Words cannot accurately describe the commanding presence of this circa 1887 Queen Anne Victorian, perfectly set along the Hudson River in the heart of Upper Nyack, on the coveted street of North Broadway. Cyclists and joggers alike cannot help but pause and admire the fairytale entry while passing by. A truly one of a kind architectural masterpiece once owned by Alvin Johnson, co-founder of the New School of Social Research and creator of the "University in Exile" program which aided 200 scholars from persecution in Nazi Germany. Later owned by renowned painter Dorothy Deyrup. After an extensive two year renovation, integrating modern technology and expanding upon the residence's already impressive footprint, the striking exterior facade consists of an asymmetrical design with multiple balconies overlooking the river, turrets, stained glass windows, intricate rooflines, vibrant colors and a plethora of ornate detail. The expansive 1.42 acre park-like property features water access (with ability to rebuild pre-existing dock), fully approved pool site (see attached pool plans), koi pond, pergola, basketball court, gated driveway, private beach, and a detached 2 car garage complete with Tesla charging station. Interior amenities include eight fireplaces, four with stone mantels and four with original raised Victorian tile work. Grand master suite with converted bedroom into massive walk-closet and bathroom with steam shower and river views, home theater, recreation room, 7 zone heat, eat-in kitchen with top of line appliances, and embossed "Lincrusta" ceilings/walls, name just a few highlights. Conveniently located just seconds away from fine dining, boutique shopping, hiking/biking trails, Hook Mountain, and best of all, this crown jewel sits only 30 minutes north of New York City...
