Description: Longtime Nyack resident and famed painter Edward Hopper attended Miss Dickey’s early school as a young boy in the 1880s in this charming Victorian. Hopper lived around the corner on North Broadway in Nyack.
The Dickeys, a prominent Nyack ship-building family, built the ”Chrystenah,” a well-known Hudson River steamship that was in service on the Hudson River for 60 years.
The house was built in 1867 and most recently fully renovated in 2009. With 3,270 square feet of interior space, the house has four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one partial bath. The in-town lot measures 0.21 acres.
The house is being sold as a legal two-family home, although it could be converted back to a single-family dwelling.
Asking price: $799,000, down from $849,000, with estimated annual taxes of $20,849
Selling points: The freshly painted house is on a large corner lot in very walkable downtown Nyack. It’s just two blocks to the Hudson River and the Nyack Boat Club and five blocks to Main Street. The house is loaded with charming original architectural details, including a steep gable roof, chair rails, wrap-around front porch, hooded windows, chandeliers, fancy inlay pattern floors, crown moldings, panel doors, and cathedral and vaulted ceilings. Modern details include a charming eat-in kitchen with granite counters and a black and white tiled bathroom.
