1 Perry Lane
Upper Nyack, New York.
The central portion of this historic home was built in 1805 by John Perry and was expanded by various owners, including Novelist Ben Hecht who added North and South wings, a Greenhouse, a charming stone Writer's Cottage designed by Henry Varnum Poor and an Adirondack style Guest Cottage. Restored by the current owner, the main house has retained its original integrity and has added touches such as a glass enclosed Sunroom off the Kitchen and Dining Room along with a spacious deck off the living room, a new staircase with hand-carved details and a gym. Outdoors, the 1.1 acre waterfront property is breathtaking with terraced gardens and a heated pool and whirlpool spa. Simply beautiful.
