Property descriptionSitting high on a rise, overlooking the Hudson, "Overledge" enjoys a commanding view of the Hudson River while being in close proximity to the river villages and within easy commuting distance to New York City. This exquisite representation of Early 20th Century architecture can be found perched atop River Road in Grandview. The home has quite a storied past beginning with the original owner, Margaret Swift of the Swift Meat Packing Company. Mrs. Swift was a Titanic Survivor and had the plans for Overledge with her on her journey back to the States. The plans did not survive but four years later in 1916, Mrs. Swift built the home where it stands today.The most recent owners have updated the house by building an addition beautifully designed to marry with the existing structure to ensure the aesthetics from both inside and out. A gourmet kitchen project was completed including a mudroom with heated stone floors. All original floors have been sanded and restored throughout the downstairs living spaces and new Marvin windows have been replaced.
The home boasts four working fireplaces, a beautiful butler's pantry, powder room, large eat-in kitchen with radiant heat, formal dining room, spacious center entry hall, living room and charming sun room with beautiful curved original windows. This room is wired with a flat screen TV and new gas insert stove. A spiral staircase leads down to the finished basement with half bath and game room.
Upstairs the home has a formal main staircase with a large fully restored stained glass window (an original to the house). Four bedrooms span the length of the house each with a view better than the next.
There are three full baths, and a large walk-in dressing room in the master bath. The master suite also has an office/den annexed to the bedroom and a large dressing room with built-ins.
A large scale, engineered landscaping project was completed several years ago and includes an expansive bluestone terrace and koi pond. A recent installation of a large whole-house Generac generator was also completed. Stairs leading down to the riverfront property across the road afford access to enjoy the river from the property.
With an abundance of privacy and expansive river views, Overledge is truly a unique place to call home. The house has all the amenities of modern living while still maintaining the gracious charm of an authentically restored historical home.
