About 115 River Road

Endearing, early 19th century home, sensitively restored and located across from the Hudson River with wonderful views from almost every room. Live the waterfront lifestyle close to boat marinas, waterfront parks, restaurants, and nestled between two historic Hudson Riverfront villages of Piermont and Nyack. Feel an excitement as soon as you enter the front door, passing through its beautiful and private, garden and landscaping, to its bright and sunny interior.

Through the years the home has been expanded and renovated, and it offers a wood burning fireplace with a stone mantel, period newel post, antique Dutch door, pine and oak floors, period panel doors/screen-storm doors, old wavy glass, stone patios, updated kitchen and baths, wonderful sandstone steps and walls, and an old fashion storage shed and separate garage. This comfortable home offers four rooms on the first floor: living room, dining room/den, glassed in sitting room/den, kitchen and half bath. Second floor has three bedrooms and bath. Just behind the house and up a small rise, is a flat, hidden area of the property, which is undeveloped and offers spectacular views of the Hudson on the east, and up close views of the sandstone outcroppings in the rear/west. The 10+ mile nature trail/Erie Rail trail, is just above the property.

Living at 115 River Road offers an easy lifestyle, for the active person who enjoys using the Hudson River, or walking/hiking/jogging/biking, etc., or one who simply wants a bucolic spot to relax, enjoy gardening, or desire a wonderful place to work from home. River Road was originally a foot trail for native Americans to travel to and from the river, later a horseback trail and a finally a road. It's been called the prettiest road in Rockland County. It recently underwent a huge, multi-million dollar rebuild and sidewalks were added for easier access for residents. Active sandstone/brownstone quarries were located behind this home and quarried until the early/mid 1800s. In the later part of the 19th/early 20th century, there was a active yacht club directly across the street. The only element that remains of it today, is a bell tower.

115 River Road has been owned by many through the years. One family of particular note, were brothers, Charles and Daniel Frohman, in the 1890s. They started their careers in the American Theater as actors in the early days of Broadway, and later became theatrical producers and managers. Grandview attracted many actors at the turn of the century and there were several boarding houses and hotels that attracted successful New Yorkers of the day, including Diamond Jim Brady and actress, Lillian Russel, who were regulars to Grandview. The Frohman brothers developed a system of road companies that would tour the nation while the shows also played in NYC. In 1890s, Frohman co-founded the Theatrical Syndicate, a nationwide chain of theaters that dominated the American touring company business for more than two decades. They produced top hits of the day. Frohman also went into business with Adolf Zuckor, another Rockland County resident, who was one of the three founders of Paramount Studios. A very special place. Nothing compares to 115 River Road!
