Property Description

The historic G.M. Lawrence House, c. 1828, was built by shopkeeper and postmaster George M. Lawrence, the son of Jonathan Lawrence, Jr., one of Washington's most trusted officers in the Revolutionary War. On the market for the first time in 40 years, this expertly renovated Greek Revival structure is perfectly sited on 3.1 parklike acres in the historic hamlet of Palisades, with a southern exposure and lots of light steaming through the large windows. A spectacular freestanding 2-story outbuilding with garage bays, workshop and airy studio / office space was added to the property in 2005, and is ideal for work at home, storage, and creative projects. The current owners left no stone unturned in their expert restoration and renovation of the antique house; painstakingly stripping away layers of paint to reveal original details, replacing modern flooring with 19th century heart pine boards, installing historically appropriate energy efficient windows, replacing siding and adding modern insulation, new roof with copper gutters and leaders, high end kitchen and baths, and lovingly updating every inch of the structure, including all plumbing, heating, and electrical systems. To usher the house into the 21st century, making it livable and inviting, they opened walls to give the first floor a more open plan feel, and constructed a 2-story addition featuring spacious family room with wood burning fireplace and a gracious primary bedroom above. The original living room fireplace was rebuilt and lined, and fitted with a wood stove. 2 separate finished lower level spaces, dry with walk out access, provide additional space for play, work, and laundry. The 2 story outbuilding features a 3-bay garage, radiant heat, 10' ceilings, concealed shelving and a workshop space with 220 power, running water, and air compressor. The second story of the garage is a spacious and beautifully finished work space, with Brazilian mahogany floors and radiant heat. The grounds offer complete privacy and are beautifully landscaped with an array of specimen trees, aged bluestone patio and paths, hot tub, and wood burning pizza oven. Steps away from miles of river view trails, ice skating and swimming in Tallman Park; Palisades' charming local library; the Palisades Community Center and gourmet 9W Market. Award winning South Orangetown schools and a short drive to the restaurants and shops of nearby Piermont and Nyack villages. The vibe is historic country estate, and only 11 miles north of the GW Bridge means easy access to NYC.
