Sited on 14 acres with large surrounding lawns and woods behind, this lovely little cottage has been completely restored. It is right across from the Hudson River and a private, grassy beach area for your enjoyment.

The kitchen is bright with Turkish tiled backsplash, hand painted cabinets, natural woodwork, and trim details. Guests will be able to relax in the living room, which offers a large comfortable sofa and tiled gas fireplace.

The bathroom features a deep soaking clawfoot tub with shower, a beautiful antique pedestal sink, and natural beadboard walls and ceiling. There is one bedroom that is small yet delightful with a queen bed, an antique dresser, a closet, and stained glass lamps. Off the dining area is an old fashioned single bed overlooking the river that's ideal for sleeping or napping.

This cottage also features ceilings that are adorned with beautiful beams from an 1840 covered Vermont bridge. There is a sunny laundry room with a washer and dryer as well.

It is a comfortable one mile walk to downtown North Creek where there are restaurants, shopping, and occasional events at the old train station.

Learn About the Owner's Story

The 14-acre parcel which I purchased in the summer of 2021 included an abandoned 1940’s cottage which not been inhabited for decades. The boarded-up cottage, overlooking the Hudson River which is directly across the country road, was ready to collapse. The rafters and outside walls were bowing, huge pine trees were ready to fall on top of it, and the interior was in deplorable condition.

For an entire pleasurable year, I worked alongside my group of tradespeople to restore the cottage. Tricky carpentry was involved to shore up and brace the sagging roof rafters, and to bring the outside walls back to plumb. Because of the cottage’s proximity to the Hudson River, the new septic system had to be designed carefully to meet setbacks, and the abutting flood plain elevation had to be dealt with in the permitting process. The interior was gutted and rebuilt in our “new old” style with knotty pine beadboard, antique beams, bright tile work and an antique style bathroom.

Sensing that this could be the place where I may live in retirement (close to town, flatter grades, and less challenging in the winter than living atop a mountain), I admittedly went a little overboard during the renovation with extra beautiful detailing inside and out.

(I read this somewhere recently and it describes my building philosophy: “A preferable solution is to maintain all that is good. All that has served us well. Maintain the foundations of the old house and as much of the structure above as is still sound. Root out the rot and treat the wood worms. Repair and replace what is broken but keep as much as possible of what has stood the test of time, what has worked.” This is good advice for old homes and life as well.)

Although virtually everything in the cottage has been replaced (framing, siding, roofing, interior finish, mechanicals), the Hudson River cottage now appears both inside and out as a well-maintained historic cottage instead of a major renovation. This pleases me.
