Property Description

You’ll gasp at the stunning seasonal panoramic Hudson River views from this gorgeous mid-century modern home in Beacon's exclusive Wodenethe enclave! This home sits on just over an acre of the twenty-acre parcel purchased by Henry Winthrop Sargent in 1840. Sargent's passion for specimen trees and plants made Wodenethe famous as the forerunner to many successful arboretums. The entry leads to the kitchen with pristine white cabinetry, quartz counters, and gorgeous Moroccan glass backsplash. Entertain guests over the island or lose yourself in the river view at the kitchen table! The very spacious living room features a wall of windows that seasonally showcase the Hudson! An open plan allows the living and dining areas to enjoy one of two wood-burning fireplaces in the home, as well as access to the deck. Bright yellow forsythia welcomes the spring, while dogwoods, plum, cherry trees and numerous perennial gardens announce the summer! The master bedroom and en suite bath overlook a rare and breathtaking 200-year-old weeping beech tree. The second bedroom on this level overlooks gorgeous dogwoods and has a perfectly retro bath en suite. Beautiful hardwood floors throughout, and a wing with laundry and half-bath complete this level. The lower level may be accessed from either of two staircases. One descends directly to a roomy yet cozy library / office with lots of built-ins for media storage and books, and a delightful nook to curl up with one of them! The great room is wonderfully sunny, has hardwood floors, a terrific wet-bar and fireplace for entertaining, and easily hosts a pool table. This room opens out to the patio via a few marble steps with provenance as the steps and marble bench are preserved remnants of the Henry Winthrop Sargent estate. The second staircase takes you to a third bedroom with dressing room, en suite bath, and terrazzo floor. Excellent mother / daughter potential. The two-car garage with ample workbench is attached. This home boasts plenty of storage, a cedar closet, tons of light, antique specimen trees, new roof, furnace, and windows, and has been lovingly and attentively cared for as the current owners have been amazing stewards of this special and stunning property. Come and enjoy the tranquility of this setting just a few minutes from the Metro North Beacon station, the DIA museum, and a short distance to Main St. restaurants, live music, antiques, and all that Beacon offers.
