The Clock House. Vibrant, chic, jewel box like home, with extraordinary architectural design, and full of surprises around every turn, from the broadest gesture to the smallest detail. Live the lifestyle of luxury and sophistication in "the country", knowing all that Manhattan has to offer is only 25 minutes away. Enter past its stone walls and down its garden path, past the two, New Orleans style, natural gas lanterns and below its monumental clock, crowning the home. The Clock House is located in The Snedens Landing Historic District, a magical neighborhood, steeped with American history, and witnessed significant events during the Revolutionary War in the 1700s. It feels much the same today, as it did 350 years ago. The home is a short walk to the Hudson River & the Snedens Landing Tennis Assoc. court, and is nestled between two, riverfront parks. The Clock House's interior is a compilation of amazing architectural details from other fine homes and estates from around the world. It features an 18th century Adams style fireplace mantel from England, and a 19th century mantel from London. Two 19th century steel and brass balconies, from a robber barron's Locust Valley estate, overlook the great room, and an outstanding 19th century iron staircase from Brooklyn. Nothing was left undone. From its rare Indian sandstone floors, waxed, textured plaster walls and reproduction of early 20th NYC subway, glass grates, as found in SoHo, are used in the space. Custom designed French marquetry, hand crafted straw wallpaper with a subtle dragon fly design are used in the den. The Clock House's living room features 20 ft ceilings and a wall of tall, casement windows overlooking its private yard. The Clock House is like, living, changing art, because of the unique artistry & design elements under one roof. And Snedens Landing, is the first community along the West Bank of the Hudson River, north of the GW Bridge, past the dramatic cliffs of the Palisades, where the cliffs abruptly end and the land slopes to the river - and, thus, Snedens Landing was born. It's a romantic, private community with rich history and extraordinary people - past & present. Fitting that The Clock House is located in such a prominent community. Nothing Compares!
