Hudson River Views Await at Nyack’s Gingerbread Victorian Home

Photos by Andrea B. Swenson

Dating back to 1868, the Rockland County house stands out with sweet details like a curved cantilevered staircase, two fireplaces, and an airy kitchen.

Address: 1111 Rte 9W, Nyack

Description: On the idyllic waterfront in Nyack, this gingerbread Victorian offers the best of suburban living in the Hudson Valley. The 3,100-square-foot home is a historic one, dating back to 1868 in Rockland County. It’s hard to tell upon first glance, though. Thanks to an extensive renovation in 2017, the lower-Valley house offers modern-day creature comforts at every corner.

A walk down the ample front hall leads to a curved, cantilevered staircase that connects the home’s three levels. The four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom property boasts two fireplaces, along with a new kitchen, updated bathrooms, refinished flooring, additional insulation, and a new mudroom. On the lower level, a home office and studio space offer quiet and convenience for anyone who works from home or commutes to New York City.

Outside, meanwhile, the 1.1 acres of land play host to terraced stone walls, a flat garden, and a vintage front porch. Arguably the most appealing part of the exterior are the magnificent views of the Hudson River beyond. They’re best admired from the porch or the rolling lawn, although they’re easily visible from inside the house as well.

Asking price: $1,225,000

Selling points: While the Hudson River panorama is an undeniable lure, the Nyack home also appeals to families looking to settle in one of the Hudson Valley’s quiet, welcoming communities. The house is part of the top-rated Nyack Union Free School District and conveniently located near New York City. It’s also only a short drive away from central Nyack, where community coffee shops, local history, and bookstores galore await. For nature lovers, the Nyack Beach State Park is ideal for walking and hiking near the riverfront.

As a bonus, the home has only had five owners, with the current owners in residence for 18 years and the previous owner in residence for more than 50.
