From the appealingly large and genteel front porch, pass through stained-glass doors into a grand foyer with an exquisitely detailed staircase,then on to either the grand parlor or formal dining room. (Or run up the stairs and hide in the the three room attic.) This Victorian Queen Anne was designed by George Franklin Barber (1854-1915), one of the most successful American architects of the period. It's detail and proportion-lover's paradise, with ten-foot ceilings, original fireplaces, mantels, pocket doors, and historic moldings throughout -and oversized windows allow in abundant light. Outside, a huge lot has century-old trees, flower and vegetable gardens, and a guest cottage. The nearby historic village and west bank of the Hudson are a short walk away. Listed at $644,334.
