IRVINGTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. – That historic, Italianate villa you’ve been searching for—the one with separate staff quarters, sprawling verandas, a carriage house for guests and your own private conservatory? Look no further. Nuits, an 1853 gem of an estate in Irvington-on-Hudson, can be yours for just $11,750,00, view of the Hudson River included.
Previously owned by John Jacob Astor, this five-acre property has history and luxury in spades. And according to Coldwell Banker real estate agent, Therese Valvano, the property’s engineering feats include fireplaces with windows above them, concealed shutters that fold away into the windows, and windows that open by disappearing into the ceiling. The property's co-listing agent is Dalia Valdes of Julia B. Fee Sotheby's.
And for your next grand event, Nuits boasts a ballroom, which looks out over the Hudson River.
Valvano says that decades of disrepair were corrected in the 1980s, when it was renovated using historically correct materials to make cosmetic repairs, while beginning contemporary infrastructure updates. The current owner took possession of Nuits in 2000, making further updates to render this home at once historic and contemporary.
If you’re still on the hunt for somewhere opulent to lay your head at the end of the day, Nuits may be just the home you’ve been searching for.
