Property Description

Cornell House. First time on market in 70 years! Classic, circa 1912 colonial, built in the style of Piermont's iconic turn of the century resort, Fort Comfort, with a bathing pavilion. Both properties designed with hip roofs and wide porches with slender columns. It was also passed down to the current owners/family, that the living room was always painted a green color, like in Fort Comfort's main lobby/room, and the dining room was always a dark red, like the one in F.C. This home was located on land in Buena Vista Park, formerly owned by the hotel. The hotel had described the park as: "A fusion of botany and culture. The garden and walking trails of Fort Comfort allowed its guests to immerse themselves in nature. The manicured lawns were dotted with flowers and shaded trees that were fit for a king." Three ancient spruce trees, native to the area, grace the front of the property today and provide shade and seclusion from the road. The Cornell House offers a long, wide porch, great for getting some fresh air and watching the world go by. The home also has great seasonal views of the Hudson River. The interior offers an elegant entry foyer with original Roman style columns between foyer/living room and dining room, beautiful oak floors, wood burning fireplace and paneled wood work in the dining room. First floor also offers a den with a full bath that could easily be converted to a first floor bedroom. Its second level offers five bedrooms and two full baths. There are also a full set of stairs to a stand up attic with a small dormer window. Ideal for storage. The basement offers relatively high ceilings, stone foundation walls and a bilco door to the yard. The property has a sculptural, old stone wall in the rear and some turn of the century garden ornamentation, which may be original to Buena Vista Park. Just past the house, leading further up the driveway is a private road that goes up to the nature trail, called Bungalow Way. The house had an addition built about four years ago. Four to six years ago the following was completed: central a/c, new kitchen, two new baths, new windows, an extra bedroom on the second level and den on the first level were added. The family's patriarch, Rocco Memmolo, served as mayor and on various village boards in Piermont during its formulative years, the '50s through '70s. The house is a short walk to the village, public transportation to NYC, the marinas, restaurants, shops and walking trails. Special!
