1148 Main Street, Malden
Serenity. Plain and simple, that is what you will find when you enter the grounds of this lovely riverfront mansion in Malden on Hudson, NY. Classically designed and set on a bluff with commanding views of the Hudson River, this home drips with old world charm when life was somewhat more quiet, more peaceful; more tranquil. The great room with floor to ceiling windows and bookend fireplaces overlooking the flagstone patio is the centerpiece of this regal home. You can simply spend hours looking down at the water and the river traffic that wanders by. Boats, birds, fish; you have a constant front row seat to an aquatic opera. With classic architectural details, this home is graced with a formal entry hall, off of which you will find the evenly portioned dining room, with a wonderful pair of French Doors, to let in the evening breeze. High ceilings throughout the home afford a great sense of openness and keep the heat of the day at bay. Going up the impressive staircase, you will find the master bedroom, directly above the great room, with its own wonderful views and private sitting area. The second floor features three additional bedrooms, with both a master, and full bath. Apart from the house, this seven acre parcel features an oversized garage, built of brick with a full second story, also featuring views of the river, this building is ripe to be transformed into… your dream: art studio, office, media center, fitness space, man cave, guest apartment, the possibilities are endless. A grass tennis court is adjacent to the house, while an old brick driveway meanders down to the riverfront, where two large boat houses are found just yards from the water’s edge. With over six hundred feet of frontage on the Hudson River and a deep, private cove, you can easily envision a mooring right there for your own boat, kayak or canoe or perhaps for friends stopping in for an afternoon visit. This property is a rare gem these days and a time capsule of life in the Hudson River Valley from years gone by. You could easily envision Thomas Cole at his easel painting a scene from this very home. If you are looking to regally entertain, or simply get away from it all, in a very private setting adjacent to undisturbed state lands, you will find no better destination.
This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
