35 BEACH ROAD, OSSINING
35 Beach Road, Ossining
This home is a tasteful mid-century rework of a 1928 country home located in Brayton Park, a hidden gem. This sublime natural setting is made magical by extensive specimen plantings, custom stonework and walkways, a koi pond, the river view and sunsets.
You have an open porch, a stone floored screen porch, and extensive decking to appreciate it all from. Your property meanders West down the hill to meet the lightly used 26 Acre Crawbuckie Nature Preserve with 1.5 miles of trails. 200 yards to the East runs the NYC/Croton Aqueduct Trailway, which stands as one of the best on the East Coast.
A little history? An immediate neighbor is the 9Br and 9Bth Moorehaven, which was bought by Clement Moore of “Night Before Christmas” fame in 1839 when it was already 100 years old and had been the furthest-north tenant farm of Phillipsburg Manor. His family lived in “The Christmas House” for another 100 years.
