Steep Rocks, majestically perched above 2800' of Hudson River shoreline with woodland trails and a coved pebble beach, was originally built in the 1860s, purchased and expanded by Charles Victor Livingstone in the 1890s, and is believed to be the only Livingston home on the river's west side. Joined by two smaller cottages and a barn on over 33 acres, Steep Rocks is one of the most significant historic riverfront homes in Ulster County. Lovingly restored by the current owner, every system and component have been brought into the 21st century without sacrificing the aesthetic integrity of this 19th century treasure. The interior redesign points toward a lifestyle of socializing and entertaining, with a double-parlor, each with its own fireplace, exposed brick walls and optionally separated by original pocket doors. Multiple sets of French doors lead to the wide wrap-around porch, part of which is screened in. The grand-scaled dining room, just across the center hall, showcases a pressed tin ceiling and offers the opportunity to host large and memorable dinners. With windows on three sides, the crisp white kitchen enjoys copious amounts of natural light and was designed so that multiple cooks can collaborate on preparing meals. A small room off the dining room can function as a home office, butler's pantry or even an extra guest space; a mudroom and full bathroom complete the first floor. The home's second level is accessed via either of two stairways which lead to four bedrooms and four full bathrooms, as well as a media room. As on the first level, there are river views from most rooms as well as decks and balconies facing east. In a deliberate effort to preserve the home's informal legacy, original floors of varying woods and widths were preserved and refinished, along with exterior architectural details. There's a fabulous and fun clubby room with a speakeasy feel, exposed brick and paneled walls in the home's walk-out lower level. Out in the carriage barn there are a couple of stalls and plenty of space to tinker. The two cottages on the property, one of which was the original gatehouse, are easily rented long- or short-term, used as staff quarters or as work spaces. The acreage is subdividable and the property is uniquely sited in close proximity to Kingston Airport, Rhinecliff's Amtrak station with service to NYC, and a host of attractions which the Hudson Valley is known for.
