Property Description

The Meeting House, also known as The Big House, an extraordinary stone house from the 1700s, with 23" thick stone walls, 10 ft ceilings, hand hewn beams, important 18th century cabinetry and paneling, wide pine board floors, 5 fireplaces, country kitchen and a huge front porch that spans 93 ft long. Known in historical documents as The Big House, a large English Manor House, constructed of local field stone, was a front row seat to many important events that shaped the future of our country during the Revolutionary War. One can feel this rich history and provenance the minute you walk in the front door, passing through the 18th century sidelight and transom windows. Imagine living 30 minutes away from NYC in a historic district, walking distance to 3,000 acres of parkland and just a few minutes to the Hudson River. This home has amazing architectural details and can accommodate any interior look or style, from country chic to elegant Federal style. This was the meeting place where George Washington met General (Marquis de) Lafayette and Baron Von Steuben; and Martha Washington stopped for tea. British traitor to America, Major Andre, was whisked away in front of the Big House, en route to trial and ultimately his hanging. The meeting house is where spies and patriots talked and plotted the future of our union. Interesting to note, that the current owner's 4th generation great grandfather, was the Aid-de-Camp for Lafayette, Jeremiah Keeler, who must have visited his 4th Gen-great-grandaughter's home with Lafayette Six degrees of separation! The Big House is also featured in many books and articles about the history of Rockland County (then part of Orange County) because of its importance in both history, and architectural. It is situated on 1.73 acres, and the adjoining 2.7 acres lot can be purchased separately, for $995,000; buyer of house has first right of refusal; MLS # 6464742. It's listed in the National & NYS Registry of Historic Places and is in the Snedens Landing Historic District. The Big House has been lovingly restored by the current owners over the last 40+ years. Living in Snedens Landing/Palisades is awesome! There is a Snedens Landing Tennis Association available for residents to play for a small fee. The local library, Palisades Community Center and The Market/Filling Station, is a short walk away. The village of Piermont is 5 min drive, and offers lots of restaurants, marinas, art galleries & other shops, as does the village of Nyack too. Whole Foods is a short 10 min drive. This home is a national treasure and a piece of American history. Nothing compares! There is nothing like The Big House!
