Henry Atherton Villa, overlooking the majestic Hudson River and the unspoiled Palisades beyond, is seemingly worlds away from the bustling intensity of New York City. In reality, it is barely 15 minutes away from midtown Manhattan. Thus this offering with its unparalleled proportions, set in the leafy historic neighborhood of Riverdale, and coupled with its proximity to the city, makes it most desirable.

The tranquility, natural beauty and, best of all, generosity of space must be seen.

The historic district was conceived in the early 19th Century to give wealthy business people a quick escape from the city, yet only minutes away. The homes built from the period evoke that grand history, and this house is in the Gothic Revival style from 1830, with a Colonial Revival addition dating from the turn of the century.

Those who have come to call this neighborhood home looked upon the villa as a gathering place for artists, poets and society.

Displaying original detail throughout and bathed in sunlight from four exposures, all rooms are extraordinarily gracious, from the porte cocher to a large ballroom-like entryway for receiving visitors, leading to an oversized formal dining room, beautiful library, and enticingly large living room, which opens onto a large verandah with spectacular views of the river. It’s a grand entertaining space in the old world manner.

All nine bedrooms throughout are beautifully proportioned and offer privacy and separation.

The principal bedroom has a lovely and panoramic balcony. Downstairs, the garden level has multifunctional offices with windows overlooking magnificent views of the Hudson River and a guest/maid’s room suite.

The house is within close distance to Wave Hill, close to all wonderful Riverdale schools and cultural centers and 12 minute drive to 57th Street in Manhattan, 20 minutes to the village.
