A circa 1868 Gothic Revival listing, once home to actor Bill Murray in the exclusive Hudson Valley celebrity enclave of Snedens Landing, New York, is on the market for $2, 075,000 with Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty
Located at 124 Washington Spring Road, the 4-bedroom, 2.5-bath home underwent a $1 million restoration in 2016 and features classic front and rear porches, a newly built porte-cochere for cars, high ceilings, restored wide board pine floors, original crown moldings, panel doors and three fireplaces including Victorian mantel with original Minton tiles and stone mantel. Highlights of the large country kitchen include a fireplace and pizza oven, soapstone and marble counters, Sub-Zero appliances, glamorous butler’s pantry and a bank of two-over-two windows with bucolic views. Additional featured include a top floor offering two finished rooms, walk-out basement, fenced in yard ideal for pets and newer mechanicals including air-conditioning and heating, plumbing, electric, septic and generator.
“Though the home dates back to 1868, it was extensively restored by the previous owner with modern amenities,” said listing agent Richard Ellis, “What makes it so special is the preserved original period details you will find at every turn like the original crown moldings, restored pine floors, and fireplaces including a Victorian mantel with original Victorian ceramic Minton tiles from the late 1800s. Actor Bill Murray once lived here while he was building and renovating the house he’d eventually move into in Snedens Landing.”
