CROTON, N.Y. -- North Old Post Road in Croton features some of the most beautiful homes in the historic community, including a 1929 brick manor and a modern colonial with gorgeous riverfront views.
One of the area's premier historic properties, 175 North Old Post Road, or "Hudsonview," is listed for $1,400,000 by Houlihan Lawrence Real Estate. The 1929 colonial home is over 7,000 sq. ft. and includes eight bedrooms and 9.3 bathrooms. The house resides on seven scenic acres and offers breathtaking views of the Hudson River.
The home also possesses a unique Westchester history. Originally built for shipping mogul Harold Clarke Strong and his wife, Selina, "Hudsonview" was a residence that was later acquired by the International Ladies Garment Workers Union, which used it as a country retreat for its members.
The home is now owned by Jim Moorhead, whose family purchased it in 1966. Jim, an architect, moved back to the home in 2006 and used the massive 36 room manor, which includes a sunken living room and 15-foot-high columns, to care for aging relatives who have since passed away.
While "Hudsonview" takes homeowners back in time, a property just down the street at 100 North Old Post Road offers modern features with some of the county's most scenic views.
Listed at $1,499,000 by Houlihan Lawrence, 100 North Old Post Road was built in 2007 and features 5 bedrooms, 4.2 bathrooms and 5,300 sq. ft. of living space. The grand entrance welcomes guests with an open space that includes three fireplaces, granite countertops, a large family room and plenty of other amenities.
100 North Old Post Road sits just blocks from the Hudson River and is surrounded by Croton's wooded scenery, which homeowners can enjoy from a spacious backyard deck. Guests can also enjoy the scenic 1.21-acre yard, equipped with an in-ground pool.
Both homes on North Old Post Road feature their own, unique characteristics and highlight the diverse real estate market in Croton. For more information about listings in Croton, visit Houlihan Lawrence Real Estate's website.
