Snedens Landing: Home to Your Future Star

Old-fashioned Americana is alive and well in one of the country’s best-kept secrets: New York’s Snedens Landing. Walking through the small hamlet, you will find a Norman Rockwell painting come to life, with children riding their bikes and families, friends and their dogs going for walks together down to the Hudson River.

It is in this bucolic slice of life that celebrities, creative types and business people at the top of their field have gravitated, as they look for a place to raise their families. Offering privilege and privacy, the area has just one road in and out and has bred many of today’s stars including Angelina Jolie, whose childhood home is currently for sale through our firm, and Hayden Panettiere, whose home also is available.

Many widely known actors of stage and screen also have chosen to raise their children here, including William Hurt, Bill Murray, Lorraine Bracco and many others.

What is so compelling about Snedens Landing? According to a recent article in The New York Times, “…with its outgoing, sometimes eccentric residents, artists and celebrities among them, the quiet would be a welcome change from the busy anonymity of city life.” Many residents live in New York City and utilize their home in Snedens as a respite from the sensory overload of city life.

Indeed, Snedens Landing, part of Palisades, has no mayor nor official legislatives, but it does have its own library and Zip Code and is almost entirely residential. And its residences run the gamut from 18th-century Dutch farmhouses to 19th-century farmhouses, Victorians and estates to 1950s post modern contemporaries and newer style homes.
