With peek-a-boo Hudson River views, eight cozy fireplaces, and a two-story barn on a separately included deeded lot, this French-style Rockland County mansion is on the market, and a steal at just $399,000 — even if it weren’t steeped in local history. Built in 1850, the seven-bedroom Stony Point home has been owned by the same family for three generations, and is finally available for purchase, public display, and perhaps a little TLC.
Built by brick baron James Garner (hence the home’s well-worn double-brick exterior), it was owned by theater set designer and actor Rollo Peters in the 20s. Once moving to Rockland County, Peters is said to have built homes for many famed friends within the NYC performing arts circle, including actor Burgess Meredith.
The following owners were fellow creatives: Bill Golden, who designed the recognized CBS logo, and wife Cipe Pineles, art director of several Condé Nast magazines, including Vogue, Seventeen, and Glamour, where she served as the first female art director of a large-scale American publication. The couple remodeled the home to suit their eclectic tastes, restoring its romantic touches and adding to the existing French charm. Notable for its grand splendor, the home served as a set for many Vogue photo shoots, giving it the nickname, the “Vogue House.”
Three generations later, Carole Golden now owns the home. And though dated touches like bright citrus-toned ceilings and 1950s linoleum floors may require some updating, perhaps the high ceilings, sweeping staircases, and ornate details make up for the largely cosmetic renovation needs.
