Description

The Aberdeen Estate. Stunning setting on the Hudson with a long lawn view of the Vanderbilt Mansion on the other side of the River. The circa 1830 Frothingham House, also known as Aberdeen, is without a doubt one of the finest Greek Revival houses in Ulster County. Completely restored as closely as possible to its original state -- nearly all original details survive -- the rooms feature large volumes of space and beautiful moldings, original flooring and fireplaces, with multiple views of the Hudson from its many river-facing windows. An addition features a newly-renovated cook's kitchen with French doors opening and looking out onto the long lawn view to the Hudson, framed on either side by mature trees, as well as a huge mud and utility room, also with views. An additional building, which could easily be connected by a breezeway, can serve any number of purposes, from studio to guest house, and has been used commercially before. The home was previously owned by John Walker, an English painter and print maker considered by some to be one of the finest abstract painters in the last 50 years. Mr. Walker's works are in the collections of major museums all over this country and Europe. There is a very steep drop-off to the Hudson at the end of the property but the owner will provide a walking easement to a gorgeous beach adjacent to Aberdeen. (There is a story, perhaps apochryphal, that Cornelius Vanderbilt used to come over to Aberdeen to play cards with the owner of Aberdeen and when the railway was coming up on the west side of the Hudson Mr. Vanderbilt made it his business to have the railway turn away from the river before it reached Aberdeen so his card game would not be disturbed.) Property DOES NOT include waterfront lot directly below; however, owner will provide a covenant that no building can be visible from the house and view will always remain unobstructed. Property is priced $345, 000 below current assessment which ought to reduce the tax burden. Additional acreage -- an adjacent lot -- is also available.
