Freneau House, an extraordinary, circa 1810 Federal style home overlooking the Hudson River with 12ft ceilings, wide open spaces, lots of light, that's been re-imagined for contemporary living. Formerly owned by decedents of Philip Freneau, an American Revolutionary War hero. This four-story home is perched on a hill with commanding views of the Hudson River and offers both a village and waterfront lifestyle. Walk or bike to downtown Piermont, the 10+ mile Rail Trail or one of Piermont's many other parks, or go to the River!
It also offers a chef's kitchen with Sub-Zero, Viking and Miele appliances, central air and newly finished top floor with additional rec room, den, fifth bedroom and full bath. The house features three fireplaces, many original moldings, panel doors, classic mahogany banisters/ railings and scrollwork decorating the stair ends. Best of all, there's a big front porch where one can pass a summer day gazing at the river.
Freneau was the darling poet of colonial times. Called a rascal by George Washington, and credited for motivating the American troops to win the war. 'We trust they will find a happier land, A brighter sunshine of their own,' Freneau wrote. Nothing Compares to the Freneau House.
