About This 1873 Second Empire For Sale In Kingston New York
Historic, stunning and absolutely unique: Edgewood Terrace, a Second Empire mansion on almost 12 acres overlooking the Hudson River, was built by brick and real-estate baron John Cordts in the late 19th Century, and then enjoyed and maintained by his descendants until being magnificently restored and re-animated by its current owner. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the leafy, private and park-like estate features the main house, and, just across the rolling lawn, an enormous 2-story carriage house and stable with original stalls, plus a charming guest house and one additional house with its own street frontage.
Featuring no less than 30 rooms, including nine bedrooms and bathrooms, the main house could potentially be seamlessly converted to a high-end hospitality or retreat opportunity. A long list of architectural jaw-droppers in the main house includes a grand veranda, multiple parlors, irreplaceable cast-iron fireplace surrounds, a conservatory, an epic attic ballroom, seven fireplaces and a tower and widow’s walk taking full advantage of the Hudson view. Epic from its inception, Edgewood Terrace remains as stunning as ever, and is now surrounded by the restaurants, galleries and festivals, including design shows and concerts at the restored Hutton Brick Yard, that have made this historic site – just 2 hours from Manhattan – one the hottest neighborhoods in the Hudson Valley.
